Croton-on-Hudson man arrested for impersonating a police officer


CORTLANDT – State Police have arrested a 41-year-old Croton-on-Hudson man on felony charges of criminal impersonation of a police officer and attempted grand larceny.

Troopers charged Marcelo Abila after they were alerted on Tuesday to a man in the Woodybrook area of Cortlandt claiming to be a police officer and demanding money.

Abila was wearing a “NYPD” baseball-style cap when he knocked on a person’s door and claimed to be a Croton police officer and demanded money of the victim, who refused and called State Police.

Abila was remanded to the Westchester County Jail in lieu of $2,500 cash bail or $5,000.
