Man arrested for allegedly posing as police
MIAMI (WSVN) -- A man has been arrested and charged for impersonating a police officer while robbing a taxi driver and some tourists.
Alejandro Filguieros, 39, appeared before a judge on Friday. He faces two counts of strong armed robbery, alleged car-jacking and two counts of falsely impersonating a police officer.
Filguieros is accused of being one of the two men seen on cell phone video posing as a police officer in mid-July. The duo stopped a taxi cab with two Swedish tourists inside.
