Multiple Agency Investigation Leads to Arrest of Winnsboro Man

Gerald Don Miller

June 28, 2024 – Sulphur Springs Police department officers arrested 56-year-old Gerald Don Miller of Winnsboro and charged the man with two counts of “Impersonating a Public Servant” after the investigation showed Miller allegedly identified himself as an agent of Child Protective Services to gain access to female victims.

The investigation began earlier in June in Lamar County when their Sheriff’s Office received a report of a white male posing as a CPS worker to gain access to a child. That suspect was identified as 56-year-old Gerald Don Miller. In that incident, Miller allegedly told a guardian he needed to speak with her child and was able to gain access. A detailed description was obtained of the suspect and his vehicle.

During the Lamar County investigation, evidence was discovered of a similar incident occurring in Sulphur Springs in November of 2023. Description of the suspect and vehicle from Sulphur Springs authorities matched with Lamar County information leading to a search warrant to be executed in Franklin County at Miller’s Winnsboro residence. Additional evidence was recovered during the search linking Miller to the Sulphur Springs incident and Miller was placed into custody and transferred to the Hopkins County Jail.

As Miller sets in Hopkins County Jail on two counts of Impersonating a Public Servant and a Sexual Assault charge, authorities urge anyone who has had contact with Miller claiming to be with Child Protective Services, to contact their local law enforcement. Sulphur Springs Police continues their investigation along with Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office, Child Protective Services, Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, and Lamar County investigators.

Bond was set at a total of $400,000.
