More Bill Jakob Capers

Posted By on Fri, Jun 12, 2009 at 2:35 PM

In response to this week's feature, "Hornswoggled," RFT is hearing more stories about the fake cop and con man Bill Jakob.

This morning the newspaper received an e-mail from a St. Louis cabbie named Umar Lee, who keeps a prolific blog and has posted an account there of his own run-ins with Jakob. Apparently Lee lived in or frequented Kinloch when Jakob was an un-licensed cop there for a time. Per Lee's blog, Jakob allegedly took up with Lee's underage girlfriend and "roughed up" Lee.
