Accused of posing as cop

Charges have been laid against a Surrey man who is accused of impersonating a police officer in an attempt to obtain money from an elderly couple.

RCMP say they received a report of a man posing as an undercover police officer and telling a couple he was investigating counterfeit money.

Mounties say he defrauded the couple over two days but officers were able to identify a suspect with surveillance video.

Harmit Johal, 42, has been charged with one count of impersonating a peace officer and two counts of fraud.

Surrey Sgt. Chad Greig says the public needs to know police never contact or solicit anyone to see if their money is counterfeit.

Greig says police should be contacted immediately to verify any suspicious requests for cash.
