Rockaway Woman Busted For Impersonating Cop
A 35-year-old Far Rockaway woman has been arrested in Nassau County for robbing two drivers that she pulled over while impersonating a police officer in Inwood over the past two months, Nassau County police said.
Police sources told The Wave that Seemona Sumasar was driving a Jeep with red flashing lights when she pulled over a vehicle at the corner of Douglas Street and Roosevelt Avenue in the early morning hours of March 2, police said.
Sumasar and a second suspect, who has yet to be apprehended, approached the vehicle while wearing bulletproof vests, “gold police type shield hanging from their necks and holding black handguns,” police said in a statement.
Sumasar demanded that the driver step out of the vehicle, searched the victim’s pockets then stole $100 cash, a watch, bracelet and ring, police said. The suspects then fled the scene.
Then in the early morning hours of May 19, Sumasar along with two other suspects pulled over a vehicle at the corner of Bayview Avenue and Pearsall Place and removed an envelope from the victim’s purse containing $1,400, a spare key for her vehicle and assorted clothing from the victim’s trunk, police said. The suspects then fled the scene.
Sumasar was arrested on May 21 and charged with two counts of robbery, two counts of criminal use of a firearm, two counts of criminal impersonation and unlawful wearing of a body vest.
She is being held at Nassau County jail after a judge set her bail at $1 million when she was arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Sunday. She is due back in court on Wednesday.
Fourth Squad detectives are continuing the investigation.
