Fake-Cop Robber Hits the Streets, Stops and Frisks Victim Just Like a Real Cop


Of course this is a thing.

Cops say that yet another punk is pretending to be a police officer — and robbing people.

But wait, it gets better: This fake cop has apparently read up on what real badges do — he stops and frisks his victims.

Here’s what happened.

Around 8:20 a.m. on Dec. 25 — on CHRISTMAS! — this jerk cornered a man at 35-38 96th Street in Corona, Queens.

Cops say he “proceeded to search the victim,” taking the guy’s watch and wallet before fleeing.

The suspected perp, pictured here, is said to be a 5-foot-6 black male.
