Earlier this week Suffolk County Police arrested a New York man for impersonating an officer but that isn't all he was doing.

A female motorist complained that not only was she stopped by this imposter, during the stop the man obtained the victim’s personal cell phone number. Shortly thereafter, the man contacted the victim and requested that she send him nude photographs of herself.

  • Criminal Impersonation 1st Degree

  • Grand Larceny 4th Degree
  • 2 counts of Unlawful Imprisonment 2nd Degree
  • Unauthorized Use of a Computer
