A man charged with impersonating an FBI agent and possessing more than a dozen firearms will remain in police custody, as per a ruling handed down by U.S. District Court Judge Victoria Roberts.
According to the FBI, Kevin Balfour, 56, told a witness that he collected money for Haiti earthquake victims by posing as an FBI agent and showing his badge.
Judge Roberts refused to set bail.
The FBI said that after searching Balfour's home they found several weapons, numerous ammunition, and badges from the Chicago Police Department, U.S. Treasury Department, and Michigan's Corrections Department.
Balfour stands to face both felony and federal charges for the crimes he has been accused of.
Balfour already has at least nine criminal convictions in two states.
