Man charged with impersonating a cop -- again

Someone get this guy an application already!

Kevlin Adams, a Southwest Philly guy who police say has been arrested five times for posing as a cop, was caught in the act again on Tuesday.

A corporal found Adams ambling around the 18th District's headquarters, at 55th and Pine streets, wearing a gunbelt and handcuffs on his waist, while his rental car was parked in the district captain's spot at about 1 a.m.

The corporal followed Adams, 23, as he made his way to the women's locker room in the basement of the headquarters and confronted him, said police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore. "She asked him some questions, and he begins to falter," Vanore said.

Adams, of 53rd Street near Woodland Avenue, copped to his phony act, and led police to his silver SUV, where he had stashed a hand held radio, police uniform pants, incident reports, handcuff keys and a security badge, Vanore said. He was charged with a variety of offenses, including burglary, theft, criminal mischief and impersonating an officer.
