WILLIAMSBURG - A 19-year-old man is accused of impersonating an FBI agent.

Police say Joseph Alexander Wilson knocked on the door of a home on Green Street and stated he was making door-to-door checks because of the Connecticut shootings.

Investigators say Wilson was supposed to be selling newspaper subscriptions.

That was around 2:30 p.m. on December 21 and officers located him on York Street, about a third of a mile away, said Major Greg Riley.

Wilson, who lives in York Co., was charged the next day with impersonating a police officer.

He's due in court on January 8.
