Man claims to be cop to get free gas

Illinois state police arrested 26-year-old Michael Wurm, the man investigators say was able to steal gas at least 10 times in four suburbs.

In one incident, he allegedly filled up at a Marathon station in Lincolnshire, then told the attendant he did not have his wallet.

Wurm reportedly said he was a Buffalo Grove police officer and would be back in an hour to pay.
