    "The suspect is described as a tall black man ..."

    Now what are the odds of that????

    The benefit of posing as a fire marshall? Let's see? Entering places of businesses under the premise of 'city or county duties.' and using this unlawful entry to perpetrate a crime. Gaining entry to homes where there may be material valuables and/or women, children, or elderly, alone and vulnerable. Not a good situation.
