Police impersonators con old couple, steal 8,000 euros in Istanbul
Two suspects of Iranian-origin have impersonated police officers to deceive an old Algerian couple in Istanbul’s Fatih district, stealing over 8,000 euros.
Two suspects were caught on surveillance cameras as they approached an old couple in Fatih. Introducing themselves as police officers, they asked to check the victims’ bags. The suspects then fled the scene after stealing 8,000 euros and 35 Turkish Liras from the couple’s bag.
Police started an investigation after the couple’s complaint and managed to locate the Iranians inside a shopping mall.
The suspects were taken into custody and later to court.
