Authorities in northern New Jersey say a Long Island man had all the trappings of a police officer except the job.
 
South Hackensack police say they found dozens of fake police badges and IDs when they arrested 48-year-old Scott Geddes of Lynbrook, N.Y., at a motel on Thursday.
 
Police say they also found a loaded .357 handgun in his waistband and a car equipped with strobe lights, sirens, police scanners and a camera.
 
Police say the motel clerk became suspicious when Geddes identified himself as an officer.
 
Police Capt. Robert Kaiser tells The Record newspaper authorities don't know where Geddes got the badges and aren't aware of him committing any crimes as a result.
 
He's charged with impersonating a police officer and faces weapons possession charges.

It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
