Police Officer Charged In Mag Prank

ANDERSON, Ind. -- A police officer has been charged with identity deception for subscribing to magazines and ordering CDs in the name of a firefighter, whose ex-wife is now married to the officer.

Phillip E. Allen, 36, was charged Thursday with two counts of identity deception, a felony.

Police said that on Oct. 9, Allen placed an online order for Playboy, Penthouse, Playgirl and Cosmopolitan in the name of firefighter Chris Baugh, to be delivered to the fire department headquarters.

The next day, Allen ordered a number of music CDs to be sent to fire department headquarters in Baugh's name, police said.

Baugh received a bill for $78 for the magazines.

Allen told investigators he did it to irritate Baugh.
You got to be kidding me? You can get in trouble for this kind of prank? I should be doing hard time. I'll have some stories to tell on-air Monday.

Pat,

There have been cops doing this to each other, for years. I guess I could get in trouble for this also.

If the prankee doesn't pay the bills for all these magazines and cds, then his credit rating drops. That has potential to be serious. I say the pranster should be fined at least the same amount of money as has accrued in bills and invoices.
