To a hammer, everything looks like a nail—sometimes computer forensics experts forget the simple sleuthing techniques of asking questions and observing human behavior.

Private Investigator Facing Impersonation Charges!

Loveland Private Investigator News from around the world

Oak Island man facing charges for acting as a P.I.

An Oak Island man was charged over the weekend with performing investigative services without a license, a little more than a month after a Wake County judge forbid him from doing so, the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.

Bill J. Hagler, 61, was booked into the Brunswick County jail Saturday on two felony counts of acting as a private investigator without a license.

According to Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office Detective Ed Carter, investigators received information that Hagler was soliciting “clients” at the Brunswick County Courthouse. In one instance, he allegedly agreed to perform investigative services for one man in exchange for the man repairing Hagler’s car, and in another instance he charged a second man $6,000 “for doing the same thing you and I can do with Google,” Carter said.

The first victim, Carter said, recently sued Hagler in Brunswick County small claims court and received a judgment for $300 for the repair work the man did on Hagler’s car.

In June, a Wake County judge issued a restraining order against Hagler, preventing him from performing any private investigative duties.

Carter said the order barred Hagler from soliciting, advising, presenting, participating or advertising in the private investigating field. The restraining order was brought by the Private Protective Services Board, a government body that licenses private investigators.
