RAYMONDVILLE - A 22-year-old convicted of impersonating a game warden must write an apology letter to the game wardens involved in the case.
That's one of the conditions of Antonio Guerra Jr.'s probation. The Harlingen man was sentenced to 10 years of probation, which was the maximum allowed. He must also serve 60 days in the Willacy County jail and complete 125 hours of community service.
In May, a witness notified Texas Parks and Wildlife officials that Guerra was posing as a game warden. Three people told investigators a man claiming to be an off-duty game warden asked to check their fishing licenses and inspect their fish. The trio said they complied, because they were nervous and feared for their safety.
The victims later identified Guerra as the man claiming to be the off-duty game warden. Investigators later found images of Guerra posing as a peace officer on his phone and home computer. They said he had also downloaded images of game warden badges.
