Two Detroit police officers have now been arrested for robbing unsuspecting drivers at gun point.
The first incident occurred at a Citgo gas station last Sunday, where the station clerk said two white men in a black Ford F-150 with police lights, pistol whipped customers pumping gas before stealing their cash and cell phones.
In another instance a man says he was pulled over by three men in an unmarked Crown Victoria, who stole his wallet and CDs.
Two different reports went out of men posing as police officers with badges, bullet proof vests and guns, robbing drivers at gunpoint. Originally these robberies were suspected of being perpetrated by “fake cops” but turned out to be real cops driving a personal vehicle.
The arrests come after a tip and a photo forwarded to the police led them to identify one of the suspects as one of their own. One of the police officers arrested was a 17 year veteran cop from Saint Clair Shores.
