    MEMPHIS, Tenn.-- Authorities in Tennessee say a 15-year-old boy posed as a police officer to steal people's credit card numbers, then racked up hundreds of dollars in charges for pizza and a house party.
    The Commercial Appeal in Memphis reports that the ninth-grader was charged with three felonies, including unauthorized use of a credit card. He was arrested Thursday.
