[Breaking] Capitol Police Arrest Man with Fake Badge, High-Capacity Magazines

1945: US, Soviet Union, Britain, and France agree to divide up occupied Germany.

The United States Capitol Police (USCP) arrested a man with a fake badge, a BB gun, body armor, high-capacity magazines, and other ammunition in his possession.

The USCP issued a press release identifying the man as Flint, Michigan resident Jerome Felipe, 53.

A Capitol Police patrol officer approached Felipe just before 5 a.m. after he’d parked his car near Peace Circle on the Capitol’s west side.

Felipe, a retired New York police officer, told the USCP officers that he was a criminal investigator with INTERPOL and presented them with a fake badge that had “Department of the INTERPOL” printed on it.

The 53-year-old agreed to let the officers search his 2017 Dodge Challenger, where they discovered a BB gun, ballistic vests, high-capacity magazines, and other ammunition.

“No real guns were found,” the release states.

USCP investigators are still determining why Felipe was parked near the Capitol, according to the release.

The Capitol Police said that Felipe faces charges for unlawful possession of high-capacity magazines and unregistered ammo.

  2. Joe says:

    What determines a high-capacity magazine? Give me a number Please. Without a number it is all BS.

      In DC? Probably one!!!!

  3. Walt says:

    Democrats are extremely worried that Americans who love their country may take it on themselves to correct what our so called government will not! If I were playing the sick game the Democrats are, I would want the citizens disarmed. After the last election or should I say appointment to office, I would be very nervous that the people may be unhappy with fraudulent actions by the Democrats!!!!

    Oh don’t forget you can take an eye out with a BB gun ! Of course you’re gonna have to get real close and have good aim at said eye…

  5. Scott says:

      Quote: “Just like with a firearm, the District of Columbia requires that an individual registers their ammunition.”
