He claims he is in town for a fashion show and works for Armani.According to photos, the man is driving a silver Jeep with Minnesota plates. If you are approached by anyone with an offer to buy jackets, call 911 to report a con game. You can also call your local police district's CAPS Office if you have any details that might help identify him. South of Lawrence is the 19th District (312-744-0064) and north of Lawrence is the 20th District (312-742-8714).
