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 [above] 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.
