A man was arrested after he broke into a Long Island home posing as a Nassau County police officer Friday evening.

Robert White, 48, forced his way into the victim's second floor bedroom apartment around 6:30 p.m., police said.

When he entered the apartment, he told the victim, 21, he was an officer and was there to collect rent money. He threatened the victim would be arrested if he did not comply, authorities said.

The victim handed White an undisclosed amount of money, police said.

White was later taken into custody and was charged with second-degree burglary, two counts of grand larceny and criminal impersonation.

We had beautiful weather around northern California on Friday with sunshine and more warmth. Saturday will also be fantastic, so get out and enjoy it! A welcome change to our very dry weather pattern is coming soon.
