Pretenders

Thugs impersonating police officers pulled a driver over and stole his wallet under the guise of arresting him early on Feb. 21.

The victim told cops that he noticed that he was being tailed by a gray minivan at around 4 am. When he stopped at a red light at the corner of Fulton Street and Carlton Avenue, two men jumped out of the soccer-mom squad car and flashed two fake badges.

The “officers” aggressively asked the driver why he had not stopped at an earlier traffic light. Before he could answer, they slapped cuffs on him and dragged him into their vehicle.

With the victim in the car, the band of fakers drove around, but eventually uncuffed their dupe and let him go. That’s when he noticed that all of his money was missing.
