GLENDALE

Men held in cop impersonations

Two men are in custody on suspicion of impersonating law enforcement officers, Glendale police said Thursday.

The most recent arrest occurred early Thursday, when a man pointed a replica handgun at people standing outside a 7-Eleven store at Montrose and La Crescenta avenues, said Glendale police Sgt. Tom Lorenz.

Lowell Rottenberg, 28, of Glendale pulled up in a silver Mercedes-Benz equipped with flashing lights on the dashboard similar to those used by police, Lorenz said.

"He was wearing an FBI hat, and a (protective) vest and had a badge," Lorenz said. "He pulled out a replica handgun, dropped it and then picked it up and aimed it at the victims and ordered them over to his car."

Someone called police, and officers arrived and arrested Rottenberg without incident, Lorenz said.

Kenneth Vanorden, 47, of Los Angeles was arrested about 2:40 p.m. Wednesday in the 3400 block of Montrose Avenue, where he allegedly pulled over a vehicle and displayed a badge. The motorist called 911, Lorenz said.
