A 46-year-old man has been accused of several robberies while posing as law enforcement.
James Blackman, of the 6400 block of South Morgan Street in the Englewood neighborhood, is due in court Wednesday to face multiple counts of armed robbery and impersonating a police officer.
Police say Blackman would approach his victims and identify himself as a federal agent named Agent or Officer Franklin.
They say he would pull out a gun and rob them.
