Pelham man accused of impersonating federal agent at Nashua police station
NASHUA - A Pelham man who claims to be bipolar is accused of impersonating a federal agent at the Nashua Police Department.
Julion Lima, 20, of 159 Marsh Road, has a history of posing as law enforcement or military officials, according to police.
Lima arrived at the city police station around 6 p.m. Friday and allegedly introduced himself as an agent with the U.S. Department of Defense Counterterrorism Task Force. According to police, he was wearing tactical pants and boots, a navy shirt with the words “federal agent,” handcuffs and a knife. He carried a firearm on his hip that turned out to be a pellet gun.
Lima allegedly told officers that he was visiting the police station to develop a professional relationship with city police and to share information. He told police he lost his identification during a foot chase in another state.
On Monday, Lima told Judge Michael Ryan he had “a 13-year history of mental illness,” including a bipolar diagnosis. He asked the judge to issue personal-recognizance bail so that he could be enrolled in a psychiatric facility.
Ryan kept Lima's bail at $100,000 cash-only on a charge of false impersonation. If jail personnel believe Lima is a danger to himself, they can ask for a psychiatric evaluation, as can Lima's attorney, Ryan said.
Police said Lima was arrested last August in Oklahoma after allegedly pretending to be an agent with the National Security Agency while visiting Integris Baptist Medical Center in Oklahoma City. Credit cards, keys and checks found missing from the medical facility were allegedly located in Lima's wallet.
Police in Lowell, Mass., said in 2010, Lima showed up at an after-school program at Henry J. Robinson School posing as a Marine captain.
Lowell Police Capt. Kelly Richardson said one of his officers also saw Lima walking downtown in Army fatigues carrying a military knife; police took the knife after Lima claimed he was a Navy Sea Cadet.
He was not charged in either incident, according to Richardson.
Lima allegedly posed as an Army ranger earlier this year while volunteering at Lowell Catholic High School.
“Lima's volunteer commitment at the school was terminated Jan. 12 by Lowell Catholic administration,” states a posting by Principal Maryellen DeMarco on the school's Facebook page.
He began volunteering at the school last November after a Criminal Offender Record Information check was conducted, references were checked and he was cleared, according to the post.
Lima is due back in Nashua District Court April 13 for a probable cause hearing.
