DAVIESS COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Police in Daviess County stopped a potentially dangerous situation at an elementary school before it escalated.

The incident happened on Tuesday at North Daviess Elementary School.

According to the Daviess County Sheriff's Office 53-year-old Beech Grove resident, Desiree Munz went to North Daviess Elementary to find information on her children.

She was immediately confronted by a deputy posted at the school.

After an investigation, staff determined Munz did not have any children enrolled at the school.

That's when she was escorted off of school property without incident.

While talking with the deputy, she said she is a federal agent and demanded to see her kids.

Police say they knew that was not true based on previous experiences with her.

Officers forwarded charges to the Daviess County's Prosecutor's Office involving impersonating a public official and criminal trespass.

Police say no students or staff at the school were in any danger during the incident.
