Illinois has another cop impersonator on its hands.
 

Aurora teen Edgar Pedroza yesterday tried pulling over vehicles in a minivan with blue flashing lights.
 
Pedroza got busted after one of the victims did not stop when he tried to pull them over and immediately called police. 
 
Police stopped him at 1:47 a.m. near Rathbone and Sard avenues for failing to signal, the The Beacon-News reported. Little did he know his no turn signal would turn into a felony charge.
 
The police received a call about a minivan attempting to pull people over, so they searched Pedroza’s car and found over $1,000 of stolen goods.
 
18-year-old Pedroza was charged with impersonating a cop and felony theft while his 17-year-old passenger was charged with felony theft, and curfew violation.
 
This story may ring a bell because just last year a 14-year-old boy faked his way into the Chicago Police Department. Said teen can’t seem to stay out of trouble because he made recent headlines for pushing his mother and stealing a car.
