Police impostor robs book store

A man posing as a Greendale police officer robbed the Borders Book Store near Southridge at 5250 S. 76th St., about 10:30 a.m. today.
According to police:

The man identified himself as a police officer and claimed he was investigating shortages in bank bag deposits, and needed to mark the bags. When the manager reached to take the bags back, the suspect pulled out a weapon and told the manager to remain in the back office until he left. The suspect fled with an undetermined amount of money.

The suspect is described as white, in his 30s, between 5 feet 5 inches tall and 5 feet 8 inches tall, with a medium build, short brown hair and a bandage on the right side of his face.
At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a black baseball cap with "Police" across the front in white letters, sunglasses, a dark-colored, zip-up sweater with a patch on the shoulder and star-shaped badge on the left front, khaki pants, and a police belt with a holster and weapon, and handcuffs.
Police are still reviewing surveillance tapes, and are working with the Hales Corners and Brookfield police departments, which may have similar cases, said Police Chief Robert Dams.

Amazing. How many cops have you seen wearing black baseball hats with "Police" written on it? This lady that handed over the money, they should put her in the microwave too.
