How a Chicago teen fooled police into thinking he was an officer

The Chicago Tribune

CHICAGO — He walked into the store in an almost-complete Chicago police uniform and, like a seasoned shopper, began pointing out a variety of new items he needed. He asked for a police sweater, shirt and belt, quickly racking up a pile of clothing. When the saleswoman asked him for the required police identification, he said he'd get it from his car but didn't return.

Three days later -- last Saturday -- the same individual came back to AJ Uniform in the 2700 block of West 111th Street and again asked for a laundry list of items. This time, the store was crowded with customers, and he told employees he was going to go to lunch before coming back to buy what he picked out.
