Skokie cop dresses up like pizza delivery man to bust customer
Here’s your pizza. And you’re under arrest.
Skokie police officers went undercover as Edwardo’s pizza delivery men after a man ordered a pizza and other food with a stranger’s credit card.
The undercover operation on Jan. 8 included an officer wearing an Edwardo’s jacket — and putting an Edwardo’s sign on an unmarked squad car.
Police said William Peppers, 31, of the 10200 block of South Morgan, tried three different credit cards when ordering $51 in food to a Skokie address.
The first two cards were denied. The third belonged to a woman who had just reported fraudulent orders on her card, police said.
Police were alerted and the officers took the pizza to Peppers. He waved them down and signed a receipt for the food. Then he was arrested, police said.
He’s charged with felony forgery.
