POLICE: Teen Dressed Like Adult, Stole Car From Dealership

The Chicago teenager who was arrested after dressing up like a police officer and going on patrol earlier this year is in trouble with the law again after allegedly dressing like an adult to steal a car from a dealership.

Chicago Police spokesman Roderick Drew says the 15-year-old donned a suit and went to the dealership to take a test drive.

Drew says an employee had to jump start the car, and when he left to return equipment, the boy drove off.

Drew says the boy crashed a short time later. He says the boy apparently tried to blend into the crowd that gathered by grabbing a stroller. Drew didn't know if a child was inside.

The boy faces charges that include criminal trespass to a vehicle.

    LIKE I SAID before that didnt get posted. He needs a swift kick. There isn't anything wrong with saying that. Obviously the court system doesnt getit and they let this child keep doing this. When will it stop? When he kills someone?

    How many times is the court system going to let this person do something wrong before they lock him up?

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. I guess car dealerships are so desperate to sell, they will overlook the 'details' that make a kid look like a kid. You can put a suit on a kid and they still don't look like adults. Talk to the educated officers of the law.

    I agree with Delta, the kid is screaming to get locked up or to catch a bullet one! If you live life like he is, you can almost bet that bad things will happen! I hope he gets his act together before he ends up dead or another tax burden.

    Yeah, he is screaming alright, screaming to get locked up. I thuink the kid as most kids do these days watch too much tv to the point they think its real. This senerio reminds me of the movie catch me if you can. This is a game to this kid. He is not (screaming out for help). No pity for this kid. Sad though because this activity stems from lack or parenting or poor parenting which is pretty much the same thing.
