Perps posing as police
From the Queens Courier:
A pair of phony police officers are wanted in three armed robberies throughout Queens after they were caught on video at a Woodhaven salon, cops said.
The suspects flash guns and shields to convince their victims they are police officers, then tie them up and steal cash and electronics before fleeing, officials said.
The two men first hit a Cherry Avenue business in Flushing on March 8, according to police. They then robbed the Body Works Salon on Jamaica Avenue in Woodhaven four days later, followed by the Charming Spa Salon on Steinway Street in Astoria on Tuesday.
