Man Allegedly Posed As Policeman To Molest Girls

VAN NUYS (AP) — A 24-year-old San Fernando Valley man has been charged with impersonating a police officer and fondling young girls.

Prosecutors say Joseph Reyes Rogero, of Van Nuys, was charged Thursday with 18 felony counts including kidnapping for child molesting, lewd act on a child and impersonating a public officer.

Rogero is accused of flashing what looked like a police badge and asking girls near Lawrence Middle School to help him with an investigation. He then allegedly told them they needed to wear a tracking device in their bras.

Police say there were five victims between the ages of 12 and 15.

Rogero, a trainer at a gym, was arrested Tuesday and is being held on $5.5 million bail.

    What a perverted idiot. Hey moron, you’re going to spend at least the next 25 years of your life locked in a concrete building with the meanest men on the planet, all wanting to torture, rape and kill you. You’re going to suffer this fate all because you wanted to feel up a young girl’s breasts? You get the idiot of the year award.

    Really? 24 years old? A trainer at a gym? Impersonating a police officer to feel on young girls? 18 felony counts later? Goodbye Mr. Gym trainer.

    You can use ur training skills in prison to teach the inmates how to breath correctly when they are lifting weights.

    What An IDIOT !!!

    At least he will be able to use his training experience in prison to teach the inmates how to breathe properly when lifting heavy weights in the yard.

    WHAT AN IDIOT !!!!
