    Police impersonation suspects in Queens Tuesday

    Police are searching for three men who posed as NYPD detectives during a robbery at a check-cashing business in Queens Tuesday.

    According to police, the men walked into the Pay-O-Matic store at 247-12 South Conduit Ave. in Rosedale at about 810 a.m. Tuesday and identified themselves as detectives.

    The suspects then removed cash from the business and fled in a dark-colored late 1990s Ford Expedition, police said. The vehicle had a broken rear-passenger window that was covered by plack plastic and secured with silver-colored Duct tape.

    The vehicle may have had Virginia license plates.

    The suspects were wearing dark blue jackets with an embroidered NYPD logo on the left chest and had fake police shields hanging around their necks, police said. Two of the suspects were wearing blue jeans, and one wore khaki pants. Two of them were also wearing New York Yankees baseball caps. All were wearing sunglasses.

    Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS or at nypdcrimestoppers.com.
