Sugar Land police are investigating several thefts involving a man posing as a police officer.
In each instance, a man approached a Middle Eastern or Asian person, displayed a gold badge, identified himself as a police officer and said he was conducting an investigation.
The police imposter told his victims he needed to examine the contents of their wallets, removed credit cards while the owners were distracted, then returned the wallets.
The stolen credit cards were later used to make purchases at local stores.
The thefts occurred on:
July 29, at 12:30 a.m., at Starbucks, 16098 City Walk;
July 30, at 1:30 p.m., at Bally’s Total Fitness, 13444 Southwest Freeway; and
July 31, at 9 p.m., in the Lake Point parking lot, 15800 Southwest Freeway.
The suspect was described as a heavy-set black man with a fair complexion and a large stomach. He was 30 to 40 years old, 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall, and weighed 210 to 225 pounds.
Anyone with information should call the Sugar Land Police Department at 281-275-2540 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at 281-342-TIPS(8477).
