KENNER - The Kenner Police Department is presently investigating three robberies involving a man stopping victims claiming to be a police officer. 

The first incident occurred on Sunday, April 11, 2010.  The victim was at the Fuelman located in the 700 block of Hanson Street, in Kenner, when he was approached by a black male, described to be 20 to 30 years old, 5’8” to 6’1” in height, 170 to 200 pounds, driving a newer model Ford pick up with a bed cover.  The suspect identified himself as a police officer and was in possession of an object that appeared to be a police radio.  The suspect ordered the victim to produce his identification and then took the victim’s wallet and money before fleeing the area. 

A second such incident occurred on Saturday, August 14, 2010, in the 800 block of Daniel Street, in Kenner.   A black male, described to be 30 to 35 years old, 170 to 180 pounds, driving a Ford F-Series truck, 4 door, stopped a victim in the 800 block of Daniel Street.  The suspect produced a badge and asked the victim for his identification.  The suspect then took the victim’s wallet and money before fleeing the area. 

The third incident occurred on Saturday, August 21, 2010, in the 3400 block of Connecticut Avenue, in Kenner.  The victim was followed to his residence by a black male driving a dark two-tone colored Ford, F-Series pickup truck, 4-door with a bed cover.  In this incident the victim advised the Ford truck appeared to have flashing lights.  The suspect exited his vehicle and identified himself as a police officer and produced a handgun.  Upon asking the victims for identification, the suspect took the victims wallet containing an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the area.
