FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Police are looking for a thief who posed as a firefighter in order to steal nearly $500 from a Fort Worth hotel.

Authorities say the man walked into the hotel on Wednesday and asked to inspect the building’s fire alarms.

Police say the man claimed to have been a Fort Worth firefighter for 17 years and was now a fire systems inspector.

After resetting some systems, the man asked the hotel manager to go to another part of the building to set off the fire alarm.

Police say when the manager returned, the man indicated he had to go to his car for some tools but he actually fled in a dark Ford Mustang.

Investigators say the hotel manager then discovered that the man had stolen $460 from the register.
