Investigators are searching for businesses targeted by a man posing as a Cal/OSHA agent.

The San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department says Dennis Jackson was faking his identity to extort money from companies.

One of his most recent targets was Pick & Pull Automotive in Victorville. The owner suspected Jackson was a fraud and called OSHA, who confirmed he did not work for the agency.

Jackson took off but was arrested a short time later.
