PA - Man Impersonating Cop Robs Multiple Victims
These crimes took place in my neck of the woods. I can tell ya one thing is that there is no way I'd think this guy was a cop even if he'd had a uniform on.
Note his priors and there's a ton of them.
An off duty police officer noticed a vehicle that fit the description given in which John Echols was a passenger. It had Georgia plates.
Echols stopped numerous men through the Northeast section of Philadelphia and told them they fit the description of a wanted man. After having the victims empty their pockets he would let them go.........short of their loot.
People got some ***** I tell ya.
More plus photo at link.

Was he even showing a badge or any credentials ... with that grungy look maybe people thought he was an undercover officer ... he must have selectively picked those people that he thought would fall for his line!!
Remarks in the Comments section of the news link are interesting.

I've seen undercover cops that looked like they were 16 years old, and you can tell their the police. Him? No way.
What a POS.
