From The Star 7 Oct 2009:
Police detain bogus cop who extorted from students
JOHOR BARU: A man who had impersonated a policeman to extort money from university students was detained after campus security guards in Taman University stopped him for questioning.
They found that the man in police uniform had a fake identification card.
They then alerted the police who later found a police vest in his car.
The suspect, in his 20s, had been targeting those out on dates on the campus grounds within Taman Universiti here.
Investigations revealed that the man was high on the police wanted list for numerous cases of impersonation and extortion in the state.
In an unrelated case, a man who just completed serving time for his involvement in a murder was arrested for possession of several toy pistols in Taman Tun Aminah.
He and another man were detained several days ago when a patrol car stopped them as they were behaving suspiciously in a car.
It is learnt that a knife was found in the car and ski masks and several toy guns were recovered during a subsequent raid at their home.
In yet another unrelated case, policemen from the Johor Baru (North) district police headquarters arrested a man in his 20s for possession of a gun and bullets.
Policemen stopped the suspect in Skudai and later recovered the gun at his home.
The suspects in all the cases have since been remanded and investigations were on-going.
Those with information on the cases are to contact 07-2212999.
