GROTON — Police have arrested a suspect involved in what they believe to be a series of robberies involving a fake prostitution website and impersonation of a police officer.
Caleb Harris, 20, of 191 Virgo Drive, Groton, has been charged with 3rd-degree robbery, 2nd-degree larceny, criminal impersonation of an officer and the criminal attempt of all three offenses. He was also charged with interfering with an officer.
He was held on a $100,000 bond and was expected to be presented to court on Dec. 23.
The investigation began on Friday, Dec. 20, at 5 a.m., when police responded to the Baily Hill section of town for a reported robbery.
An investigation revealed the victim had used a prostitution-promoting website and was instructed to meet a female in an undisclosed location. Upon arrival a male approached the vehicle and robbed the victim under the threat of arrest.
While investigating, officers stopped another vehicle in the area that claimed to be meeting the same fictitious female. On further investigation the occupant was taken into custody.
According to Detective Commander Lt. John W. Varone, it is suspected this was not the first such incident.
