Impersonating police to extort money from family

The three suspects were identified as; Joel Jackson, 30, Kingston Kenny, 30, both from West Sepik Province, and Armstrong Ralda, 21, from Western Highlands Province.

The suspects were wearing Police uniform shirts and were driving a white Toyota double cab bearing registration number CAY 689.

Police impersonators warned

Commander Anthony Wagambie Jnr says the impersonation of officers of law is a crime punishable by law.

Wagambie Jnr stated this in relation to his recent announcement on the restriction of reservists, auxiliary police and any individual unsanctioned by the commissioner but still operates or acts as a police officer.

The commander said it has come to his attention that there are community leaders and other individuals who wear police uniforms and pretend to be law enforcers.
