Man posing as cop robs woman


TAMARAC, Fla. – Broward Sheriff's Office detectives are looking for a man they say is posing as a police officer.

On Aug. 13, Brookelya Parrish, 21, pulled over thinking she was going to get a speeding ticket from a cop.

As the man walked up and ordered Parrish out of her car, she rolled up the window, feeling that something wasn't right. That's when the fake cop used a crow bar to smash her window.

The suspect then grabbed Parrish's purse, but she put up a fight. When the man couldn't get the purse, he grabbed Parrish's cell phone and computer and ran back to his dark colored Taurus.

Parish and a BSO detective were able to create a composite sketch of the fake cop. Parish described the man as a white male with short, black, spikey hair and blue eyes. The suspect was wearing a white t-shirt, black jeans and black boots at the time of the incident

Anyone with any information about this crime is urged to call BSO detective Roger Peterson at 954-321-4270 or Crime Stoppers at 954-493-8477.

Crime Stoppers will pay up to $3,000 for information that leads to an arrest.
