LAPD Police Impersonator Arrested NR11188lpk

Detectives are Looking for other Possible Victims

Los Angeles:  Robbery-Homicide Division, Robbery Special Section, is investigating several grand theft cases involving a suspect that impersonates a Los Angeles police officer.  The crimes occurred in the Rampart area of Los Angeles.

The suspect poses as an undercover Los Angeles police officer and befriends individuals that have been arrested or whose family members have been arrested.  The suspect tells the victim(s) that as a police officer, he could have their criminal case “disappear and go away.”  The victim’s agree to meet with the suspect at a coffee shop, a restaurant, or in front of a police station to pay a fee for this service.  The suspect has been seen with a police badge and a firearm and is known to drive a 2005 black Nissan Armada or grey Toyota Corolla.

During the investigation, Robbery Homicide Division detectives identified Jose Quintana as the person wanted for the impersonation of a police officer and the grand thefts.  On November 15, 2010, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office filed two counts of grand theft and two counts of unlawful use of a badge against Jose Quintana, and a warrant for his arrest was obtained.  On April 26, 2011, officers assigned to the LAPD Rampart Division’s Special Problems Unit located and arrested Jose Quintana for the outstanding felony warrant for 487 (c) PC-Grand Theft.

If you have any information regarding this suspect or have been a victim of a similar crime, please contact the Los Angeles Police Department, Robbery-Homicide Division at 213-486-6840.
