Man poses as cop to get discounted coffee
NEW YORK (FOX5NY) - Police in Buffalo arrested a man who they say impersonated a police officer in an attempt to get discounted coffee.
It happened last Friday night at a Starbucks. Police say the man flashed a fake badge and showed a holstered gun attached to his belt and claimed he was a detective.
They say he demanded a law enforcement discount.
Police say he then went to a place called Spot Coffee and again displayed a fake badge to gain access into the business after it was closed, stating he was law enforcement.
Buffalo Police arrested 48-year-old Mark Stetter of Buffalo and charged him with criminal trespassing, criminal impersonation of a police officer and menacing. It was later determined that the gun was a BB gun.
