CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A former Glasgow police officer who was fired in April for allegedly selling drugs at police headquarters was arrested again Tuesday in Fayette County.
Donald Scott Wills, 44, of Smithers is now accused of impersonating a state trooper, barging into a home and demanding drugs and money at gunpoint.
He was charged with armed robbery after an alleged home invasion Monday night on Michigan Avenue.
Wills, who was fired from the Glasgow Police Department in April, also previously worked for the Smithers Police Department. He was recently indicted on the earlier charges in Fayette County.
Smithers Sgt. S.L. Burkhammer was dispatched about 10:30 p.m. Monday to an apartment on Michigan Avenue to investigate a home invasion. Several people at the home told him two men wearing State Police uniforms "pushed their way into the apartment," according to a complaint filed in Fayette Magistrate Court.
The men fled into the alley. Burkhammer saw them running away in green jackets but lost sight of them.
The victims told Burkhammer the men knocked on their door and pushed their way in when it was opened. The men ordered everyone to the floor at gunpoint and demanded money and drugs, the complaint said.
Two of the victims knew Wills and identified him. Both told police they knew him from past encounters. He fled when one of the victims called him by name, according to the complaint.
Officers found Wills Tuesday and brought him to the apartment where both victims identified him.
Police still are looking for the second suspect. Wills is being held at Southern Regional Jail on $50,000 bond.
