The Rye PD is asking for your help to identify an individual who falsely identified himself as the Rye FD fire chief:
The above pictured male walked into Playa Bowls located at 18 Purdy Avenue in the City of Rye on Friday October 8, 2021 at approximately 6:15pm and identified himself as a Fire Chief with the City of Rye.
The unidentified male stated he was there to perform an inspection of the premises. After a brief walkthrough the male wrote two bills for approximately $480 dollars and was given cash by an employee. The male does not work for the City of Rye Fire Department and we are attempting to identify him.
Anyone that can identify this individual is asked to contact Rye Detectives at (914) 967-1234.
