Police impersonators rob check cashing store
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Armed robbers posing as cops held up a check cashing store in Queens.
Their disguises were very detailed, even down to their getaway car.
Cops say three men walked into the Pay-O-Matic on South Conduit in Rosedale Tuesday morning and told workers they were detectives and then stole cash.
The suspects are described as three white men, all wearing dark blue jackets with an embroidered "NYPD" logo on the left chest, with police-type shields hanging around their necks.
Two of the suspects were wearing blue jeans; one was wearing tan khaki pants.
All wore sunglasses.
Two suspects also wore New York Yankees baseball caps.
The suspects then fled in a dark colored, late 1990s Ford Expedition with a broken rear passenger window that was covered by black plastic and secured with silver-colored duct tape.
The vehicle possibly had Virginia plates.
