A Lowell man is under arrest and accused of lying to police about being a high-ranking official in the Marines.

The man told an officer that pulled him over that he was trying to collect toys for the organization “Toys for Tots.” He was even wearing a uniform and medals he did not earn.

The officer who pulled the man over was a former Marine himself and he was not fooled by the man’s disguise.

The man was arrested on his way to Shopper’s Café in Waltham. The restaurant was holding a “Toys for Tots” event and the supposed Staff Sergeant was supposed to pick up the toys.

    He oughta be sentanced to having to attend Marine training without being allowed to be a Marine. I’m sure there are some understanding and caring DIs that would help him!
