ROSEDALE — Police were looking for three white males in connection with a Valentine’s Day armed robbery and criminal impersonation of police officers at a Pay-O-Matic in Rosedale, authorities said.

Police said that at 8 a.m. the three men went into the business, at 247-12 South Conduit Ave., and said they were detectives and took cash.

They fled in a dark-colored 1990s Ford Expedition with a rear passenger window that was broken, covered in black plastic and held down with silver duct tape, police said.

Suspects were wearing dark blue jackets with embroidered “NYPD” logos on the left chest, faux shields hanging around their necks and sunglasses, police said. Two of the suspects wore blue jeans while the other was wearing tan khaki pants and two wore New York Yankees baseball caps, police said.

Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crime Stoppers via phone at 1-800-577-TIPS, via the website or by texting 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577.
