Trio accused of posing as cops, targeting drivers

Officials say they have arrested a Far Rockaway woman who posed as a cop, pulling over drivers and robbing them, but that her two accomplices remain at large.

Police say 35-year-old Seemona Sumasar was driving a Jeep with a red flashing light when she and two other men pulled over a woman in Inwood last week.

Cops say Sumasar and one of the men rummaged through the woman?s car and purse, stealing $1,400 and a spare key. The other man stayed in the car.

Investigators say the first attack happened in March.
