Man Posing As Police Officer Seizes 12 Pot Plants, $500, Gun
Fake, fake, fake the police?
A Michigan man told police a suspect posing as a police officer made off with his marijuana plants, a gun, and $500 at about 2 p.m. on Friday, according to police reports.
The victim told police he saw two vehicles pull up to his home in Flint, Mich., reports Laura Misjack at The Flint Journal.
A 65-year-old man first knocked and asked to see a woman who didn’t live there. The victim said he told him the woman didn’t live there and shut the door.
Then the man knocked again, this time claiming to be a police officer.
The victim opened the door and the man, along with two 19-year-old males, came into his home.
The victim told the suspect he had a gun, which the suspect told him to unload and leave on the counter.
The suspect asked about the victim’s marijuana plants, which the victim said he had because he was a medical marijuana patient.
The suspect told him he was “over the weight limit,” then confiscated and left with 12 marijuana plants, the gun and $500.
