Cops and robbers, via Information Liberation:
There were at least two reports of men with police badges, bullet proof vests and guns posing as police officers and robbing unsuspecting drivers at gunpoint.
The first incident took place at a Citgo gas station on Detroit’s east side last Sunday. The clerk says two white men in a black Ford F-150 with police lights pistol-whipped customers pumping gas. The men stole cash and cell phones from their victims. A warning went out to be on the lookout for “fake cops” but it turns out those officers were not fake after all.
A second incident happened near Harper and 3 Mile Drive. A man says he was pulled over by three men in a unmarked Crown Victoria. The man was searched and while he answered questions, his wallet and CDs were stolen.
Now under arrest are two police sergeants, a 20-year veteran of the Detroit Police Department and a 17-year veteran of the St. Clair Shores Police Department. The latter recently received a distinguished service award.
