These Fake Cops Are on the Loose
Two creeps were caught on video impersonating cops before they kicked in the door of a terrified Queens woman, handcuffed her and swiped $10,000 from her home, police said Monday.
The suspects — one clad in a short-sleeved blue T-shirt with an official-looking NYPD logo on the chest — rang the doorbell of the 27-year-old victim at the home near Woodhaven Boulevard and Doran Avenue in Glendale at 1:05 a.m. Saturday, July 23, cops said.
The men identified themselves to the stunned woman as police officers, stating they were looking for her boyfriend, cops said.
The guy in the T-shirt was wearing purple plastic surgical-type gloves and waving a bright flashlight around, surveillance footage shows.
He had massive tattoos on at least his left forearm, video shows.
His cohort had a sweatshirt on with its hood pulled up over his head, and he was wearing a face mask, according to the footage.
The pair kicked in the door, handcuffed the woman and removed approximately $10,000 from the home before fleeing in a dark Ford Mustang, police said.
No injuries were reported.
