The wandering cops, on the other hand, sensed something strange about his athletic clothing. The teen was wearing unapproved and non-prescribed shoes for police, according to investigators.

Authorities approached him right away and asked him a few questions, including what batch he graduated from. The suspect allegedly claimed to be a member of the PNP Ignatius Batch from the Police Regional Office (PRO-7).

Those who questioned the bogus cops happened to be in the same batch, and they claimed they had never heard of him. As a result, the cops demanded identification, but the suspect was unable to produce any to prove that he was a legitimate cop.

The guy eventually revealed that he was not a police officer, which resulted in his swift arrest. The guy was found with a PNP facemask, a PNP tube mask, and a.9mm Glock replica. The offender, who is charged with Usurpation of Authority, is currently being held in the stated police station.
