The man pretends to be a police officer to get information about the business

Forest Park police say an unknown man was able to obtain sensitive financial information about Madison Street’s business by posing as a police officer.

On June 9, at 5:56 p.m., the business landline received a call from a number that appeared “unknown” in the caller’s ID. When an officer picked up the phone, a man introduced himself as a police officer from the forest park, calling himself either “Officer Johnson” or “Officer Johansen.”

The man asked the employee to go somewhere private, told her that there was something deceptive in the business and that they should not accept cash, only credit cards until the end of the day.
