A new cellphone case is raising concerns for law enforcement. Gun-shaped cell phone cases are being sold online and can be mistaken for a weapon according to Roy Bassett with the Lubbock Police Department. Captain Bassett said it's not just officers that can be duped by this gun look-a-like but also regular citizens armed to defend themselves.
"I can just imagine that someone is going to walk into a situation where they're reaching for their phone that resembles a gun when someone else has a real gun and makes a credible evaluation that someone was threatening them with a gun," Captain Bassett said.
Captain Bassett advised to steer clear of this gimmick the possible consequences are just not worth it.
