An Atlanta man with a long criminal history is accused of faking his own death to avoid further legal trouble.

Georgia homeland security investigators opened a case on Climmie Sealey, 31, last year. Investigators said Sealey stole a Paulding County woman's credit card number to buy police gear.

“Somebody trying to get police uniforms and badges, that kind of thing is a big concern for us. Public trust is a big issue,” said Georgia Bureau of Investigation special agent-in-charge Scott Dutton.

While investigating the alleged credit card fraud, Georgia state trooper David James discovered that Sealey worked at Grissom-East Lake Funeral Home in DeKalb County.
