A third person has been charged after allegedly impersonating police in Sydney’s west.
Police have been investigating two separate incidents in Bidwill and Mt Druitt in the early hours of Thursday 20 May 2021, when the occupants of a silver-coloured Holden Commodore allegedly activated blue and red flashing lights pulling over two drivers.
A 20-year-old woman, and a short time later, a 31-year-old man, both drove away when they realised the occupants were not police officers; they reported the incidents to Mt Druitt Police Area Command and an investigation was initiated.
Following inquiries, two boys, aged 16 and 17, were arrested and have each been charged with impersonate police officer. The older boy has also been charged with drive recklessly/furiously or speed manner dangerous, and drive motor vehicle while licence suspended. They remain before the children’s court.
After further investigations were conducted, an 18-year-old man was arrested at a home in Granville about 9pm yesterday (Tuesday 22 June 2021).
He was taken to Granville Police station where he was charged with impersonate police officer.
He has been granted conditional bail to appear before Fairfield Local Court on Wednesday 21 July 2021.
