A Chicago man faces felony charges for allegedly impersonating a police officer and stealing from a high school principal.

Police say security video shows 20-year-old Clarence George walking into Foreman High School wearing a fake police uniform and carrying hand cuffs and a pellet gun last month.

George allegedly identified himself as an officer, walked into the principal's office and made off with several items including a laptop, a digital camera and an iPod.

The suspect is charged with aggravated impersonation of a police officer and burglary.

Police says the aggravated impersonation charge was included because George implied he was carrying a real weapon. The suspect is slated to appear in court for a bond hearing Wednesday afternoon.
