Unconvincing police impersonators waving guns around

By 28 March 2011 13

ACT Policing is seeking witnesses to an aggravated robbery in Red Hill last night (Sunday, 27 March).

Around 7.10pm three young males parked their car in a carpark near Lady Nelson Place in Red Hill. Two males approached the vehicle, one of which claimed to be an Australian Federal Police officer. The offenders demanded the driver’s licence and registration papers and requested that the occupants of the vehicle drive them places to collect cash.

When the victims refused, one of the offenders threatened the driver of the vehicle with what appeared to be a revolver. The offenders demanded the car but were refused. The victims handed over $30 in cash to the offenders who then got into a grey Ford Festiva and left the area.

The first male offender was described as mid-20s, of Middle Eastern appearance with short black spiked hair and acne scarring. He was wearing a gold chain, numerous gold rings and a white T-shirt with a black pattern. He was carrying a dark-coloured ‘bum-bag’ and a laptop bag. The male had a possible speech impediment.

The second male offender was described as being in his 20s, Caucasian, solid build, tall, with short hair. He was wearing a cap, white shorts and a dark blue T-shirt.

Police ask anyone who was in the area at that time and may have seen people matching the description to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers website on www.act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Guy with a bum bag and white shorts claims to be a cop?
First thing I’d do is respond with some bluff “Hey, me too, with AFP Specialist Response and Security. You guys gonna to be at the drinks this Friday?”
They’ll either think you’re Rambo trained to take down terrorists or suspect you’re just as dumb and crazy as them. Either way they’d be leaving quickly.

Give Constable Habib a break, it must be a worked, covert operations Festiva.

Even if you were part of the TRG (off duty), you’re still outnumbered and unarmed.

Let’s not over think this one, it was a joke.
I’d be pretty disappointed though if a real member of SRS couldn’t take down tweedle dum and tweedle dee.

But if it concerns you so, let’s just agree that claiming Chuck Norris is your cousin is enough and move on.

This is not the first time this has happened on Red Hill in recent times.
How hard can it be to patrol a hill with one road in and one road out FFS?
Do I have to volunteer to sit at the entrance with note pad and pen and record number plates?
How many times do these thugs go up and return empty handed i.e pro active policing by pulling over cars heading there for example.?

Are you serious? Do you know Woden police cover 30 odd suburbs with bugger all cars? I commend you for volunteering to patrol that particular area though. Let us know how you go.

I’ll chuck in a couple of bucks for the beret and a few more for some camo gear.

Go on, make sure you take your keyboard in case you want to yell at someone. Yes, yes I am calling you an internet tough guy. Deal with it.
