According to deputies, a man walked into Joe's Liquor on Green Tree Boulevard in Victorville shortly after 8 p.m., claiming to be a police officer. According to the report, the man donned a necklace with a "badge resembling a San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department Badge."

The man then allegedly told the person working at the store that he was the police, and he was there to inspect the store's business license. After walking behind the counter, the man apparently asked the employee about any weapons in the store, told them that the city was changing the store's business license, and left. 

No other details were immediately available.
