He his way into a police station and made off with at least one weapon

Associated Press

NEW YORK — The New York City police commissioner says a man with a long history of impersonating law enforcement pretended to be a fire marshal, talked his way into a police station and made off with at least one weapon.

Commissioner Raymond Kelly says Ronald DeShields took at least one police weapon from the 105th Precinct in Queens on Jan. 15. He later returned the weapon to a 90th Precinct gun buyback program and got $100 from the department.

He was charged with possessing stolen property. Police say he was also suspected of taking a second weapon missing from the same precinct; that gun has not been located.
