PORT WASHINGTON -
The 35-year-old man, who is accused of claiming he was a Chicago
police officer when he allegedly tried to take "high-ticket items"
from a Grafton store, will make his next appearance in Ozaukee
County Circuit Court early next week.
Peter P. Spiska, who resided in Milwaukee when he committed the
crime, has since moved to Mequon. He was recently charged with a
felony count of impersonating a peace officer to aid in commission
of a crime and misdemeanor theft.
According to the criminal complaint, Spiska went to Home Depot in
Grafton on Sept. 11 when an employee was opening the security gates
to the lawn and garden section of the store and the alarm activated.
Spiska allegedly told the employee "this happens all the time" and
pulled out a Swiss Army pocket knife with the word "POLICE" on it.
