Alleged Va. Police Impersonators Charged (Washington, D.C.), Nov. 15

WASHINGTON — Police have charged three people with impersonating police officers throughout northern Virginia.

Investigators say Jesus Sossa-Vivancos, Monica Obando, and Alain Obando-Encinas struck nearly 50 times over a 14-month period that began in August 2003.

The three would allegedly approach people and identify themselves as police officers investigating crimes.

They would allegedly search their victim’s wallets, take money and ATM cards and then leave, police said.

They mainly targeted Hispanic people in about half a dozen northern Virginia jurisdictions, including Fairfax, Arlington and Prince William counties.

Two of the suspects, Sossa-Vivancos and Obando, are being held without bond.

The third suspect, Obando-Encinas, is free on $1,000 bond.
