GREENVILLE, SC -

A woman sought for impersonating a law enforcement officer has been arrested.

Christine Parker DeYoung, 48, of Greer, was arrested and charged with impersonating a law enforcement officer.

DeYoung had been sought after a pair of incidents on May 6 in which Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office officials say that she gained access to two homes in the county by claiming she was a undercover narcotics officer.

DeYoung, who has two children, was arrested for impersonating a DSS worker in Greenville in April of 2013. In that case, authorities say she tried to get medication by going door to door and asking DSS-related questions and then going inside residences.

DeYoung's graduated from Winthrop University and has worked for Merrill Lynch as a financial advisor, according to her Facebook profile.

In the most recent incidents, the person pretending to a narcotics officer said that she was searching to see if any prescription drugs were in the home.

In one case, the suspect gained access to a home and examined a woman's prescription drugs but did not manage to take any.

DeYoung is currently being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
