A fake cop robbed livery cab drivers seven times this month after they picked him up at John F. Kennedy Airport, police said.

The phony officer tells the driver he is a Queens policeman while waving a gun and demanding property, authorities said. He then flees the vehicle just north of the airport, around the Jamaica or Springfield Garden areas.


During the incidents, which occurred between Feb. 2 and Feb. 9, the suspect stole credit cards, cellphones, a GPS device and a total of $960 in cash.

Police describe the suspect as black and about 5 feet 10 inches tall and 160 pounds.
