New Port Richey, Florida -- The story of Roy Antigua got national attention from several media outlets Tuesday, but New Port Richey police still don't have what they need to charge him.

When Antigua was arrested for violating his probation from a previous case, police say they found countless fake ID's, military and law enforcement uniforms, even weapons.

Officers went public with the case Monday, leading to about 100 tips by Tuesday afternoon.

"We have had non-stop calls that have come in from concerned citizens who have said they've either interacted with him or they've seen him," said New Port Richey Police Chief James Steffens.

But what police still need is something proving Antigua crossed the line from liar to criminal.

Evidence that he impersonated an officer, maybe by pulling someone over or searched someone.

"I anticipate as the days go on, we'll have a clearer picture of who Roy Antigua is, who he has been, or who he was planning to be," Steffens said.

10 News has learned Antigua last worked at Consulate Health Care of New Port Richey.

The staff says he worked in business development, but didn't provide health care or have access to patient information.

He was fired after this arrest.

"We're going to get the truth," Steffens said.

To reach New Port Richey police with a tip, call (727) 816-1130.

Antigua is being held in jail without bond.
