Robbery suspect who posed as cop arrested

LOS ANGELES Investigators said 41-year-old George Turegano approached his victims with a phony badge hanging from his neck.

Victims said he claimed to be a plainclothes officer, performed pat-down searches and sometimes handcuffed victims and searched their vehicles.

All five of the alleged robberies happened southwest of downtown Los Angeles in June and July.
