Detectives say a Pasco County man posed as a military veteran to try and get a job.
Stephen Henry Lang allegedly told potential employers at pool companies that he was an Army veteran and holder of a Purple Heart. He hoped it would help him "gain sympathy from his prospective employer," the sheriff's office said.
Investigators also say he had used a counterfeit military discharge document to obtain a Purple Heart license plate as part of the scam.
Lang, 23, was arrested Tuesday and taken to the Land O' Lakes Detention Center. Afterwards, he allegedly admitted he forged the discharge documents using a version he downloaded from the internet.
