 A former DEA agent was arrested with three others Monday on charges that he was robbing homes by impersonating law enforcement officials, the New York Post reports.

Marco Perez, 45, is accused of joining three other crooks who posed as NYPD detectives and federal agents to steal from suspected drug dealers and cigarette smugglers in The Bronx.

One robbery in November 2011 netted about $200,000 and a untaxed cigarettes, according to a federal court indictment, the Post reported.

Authorities believe Perez, who was being held without bail, is responsible for about 10 other robberies, according to the Post.
