First, he faked his death. Now that same man has allegedly impersonated a cop. Twice.
According to the New York Post, Raymond Roth, who was arrested last year for faking his own drowning at a beach off Long Island, is suspected of trying two times to lure women into his van by pretending to be a police officer—in one case, hours after he was sentenced for his other crime.
The alleged incidents happened days apart, according to the Post. The first time, the woman refused to get in the car and ran. Roth briefly chased her on foot. The second time happened hours after he was sentenced for faking his death.
Reports the Post:
Roth pulled up next to another Freeport woman and invited her into his vehicle, cops said. He said he was a police officer. When she refused, he threatened to arrest her, cops said.
Roth also followed her on foot until the victim entered a check cashing store and asked employees to lock him out, cops said.
Staffers called 911, but he fled before police arrived.
