Cops arrest conman impersonating police officer



PETALING JAYA --- A conman who has been impersonating a police officer to cheat victims out of RM373,750 has been arrested.

Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Khalid Abu Bakar (pic) said the conman's modus operandi was to contact families of detainees and pretend to be a police officer promising to release them for a price.

"He would promise to get their family members or friends out of jail if they bank in money into his account.

"We believe he has cheated at least 49 people and goes by several aliases," he said in a statement on Friday.

Khalid said police believe there are more victims who have yet to come forward.

"We view this as a serious case as it could bring a bad name to the police force.

"I urge anyone who fell victim to this man to come forward and lodge a police report," he said.
