CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- Police have released surveillance images of a suspect they say impersonated a police officer while robbing a currency exchange earlier this week.

The man was wearing police clothing items when he approached the exchange around 7:40 p.m. Monday in the 500 block of North Michigan Avenue. The suspect approached an employee, announced a robbery and implied he had a weapon, police have said.

He fled with "various foreign currencies," police said.
