    Police in Arlington, Massachusetts, say a New Hampshire man impersonated an FBI agent and tried to enter a home while armed with a gun Wednesday night.

    Gannon LeBlanc, 23, of Nashua, is facing charges of impersonating a police officer, selling/possessing an electric stun gun, carrying a firearm without a license and unlawful possession of ammunition.

    Police say LeBlanc posed as an agent and tried to enter a Lee Terrace home around 7:15 p.m. The homeowners contacted police and said a suspicious person wearing a black suit, a black tie, a black backpack and a black hat with white FBI lettering was refused entry to their home.

    Police found LeBlanc at a nearby bus stop and placed him under arrest. During their investigation, police found a stun gun and a loaded .38 caliber hand gun on him.

    Police also found the black FBI hat, knife, black leather gloves, rope, duct tape, a ski mask and copies of the FBI flyer given to the residents at the home.

    Officials say the residents may have been targeted and there is no reason to believe the community is in danger.

    LeBlanc was being held without bail pending his arraignment Thursday.

    It is not clear if he has an attorney.
