A 14-year-old is in custody in California after pretending to be a deputy sheriff. Victorville police officials have arrested and booked the teen, who visited homes and pulled a woman over, while dressed in a San Bernardino deputy sheriff's uniform.
The police department tweeted a video Wednesday showing what it found when officers searched the teen's home: the San Bernardino uniform he had used to impersonate an officer, a wig, "a large amount" of counterfeit money, multiple ballistic vests and simulation firearms.
"As you can see, he managed to collect quite a lot of equipment," Mara Rodriguez, the spokeswoman for the Victorville Police Department, told NPR on Thursday. Rodriguez said that some of the equipment was purchased online, though the department is still working to figure out where much of it came from.
