Three men arrested, accused of impersonating police and robbery

Three men have been arrested in connection with two police impersonation incidents Tuesday, police said.

Demon Harris, 36, Wayne Kasey, 26, and Donte Driggs, 23, have been charged with armed robbery, police impersonation and theft, according to a statement Friday by Det. Kevin Brown, a spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department.

Police said that around 11 a.m. Tuesday, a person was robbed of money and cigarettes in the 500 block of Presstman Street. The assailants were wearing dark clothing, displayed gold badges and told the victim that they were trying to locate someone wanted on a warrant, police said.

A description of the impersonators was broadcast and a short time later, an officer on patrol saw three men matching the description approaching another person in the 3200 block of Baker Street, Brown said.

The men were taken into custody and police recovered fake badges, a bullet-resistant vest, a pellet gun, a silver revolver that carries blanks and a replica handgun, police said.
