Something's a bit odd here. A cop doesn't need a gun to rob someone. They normally just take and saunter arrogantly away. Maybe the woman got suspicious when she saw the Ronald McDonald pin under the Navy SEAL insignia, next to the pilot's wings.

How are they so sure it wasn't a genuine cop? "The man was described as tall and overweight." I rest my case, though some are not tall

 

"Capt Viphawan said...“I have been told by fellow investigators that we have CCTV images of the man, but I have yet to see those images myself”.
