Investigators searching for car linked to 'fake police' robberies

Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay
 
Investigators are reportedly searching for a White Toyota Corolla registered 9419GY reportedly used by men who carried robberies on Saturday night while posing as members of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. 
 
Shortly after 8 o'clock Saturday evening, a 46 year old businessman was stopped on East King's House Road by men who were in an unmarked vehicle with flashing blue lights.
 
The two men, dressed as cops, approached the businessman and requested a search of his vehicle.
 
He complied.
 
The men then took four bags with $1.2 million in cash from the vehicle.
 
Bags with business documents as well as other items and his licensed Glock pistol were also taken by the men.
 
It's reported that the men also carried out two robberies in Meadowbrook, St. Andrew on Saturday.
 
Superintendent Stephanie Lindsay, head of the Jamaica Constabulary Force Corporate Communications Unit, is urging motorists to ask certain questions when stopped by the police.
                                                                         
"For the most part, our police officers are in uniform. There is a name and there is also supposed to be a number on the identification that matches the badge on their uniform, so there are a couple of things that the citizens can look for to satisfy themselves that there are not dealing with fake cops but real cops," she said.
