A sacked policeman charged with masquerading as an officer walked free from court yesterday after a judge found no witness could positively identify him. Ting Kam-keung, 42, had denied two counts of pretending to be a public officer and 14 counts of theft, allegedly committed in January and February this year. Prosecutor James Kynoch told the District Court that Mr Ting had masqueraded as a policeman to search four civilians and steal credit cards from their wallets. He alleged Mr Ting obtained $210,884 from the victims' accounts with the stolen cards, using $84,800 to repay debts to a Macau money lender. But Deputy Judge Michael Jenkins found there was no case to answer after two of the victims said on Tuesday they were not sure whether Mr Ting was the man who stopped and searched them. Charles Chan, for Mr Ting, said the other two victims had failed to identify the 32-year-old former constable in an identification parade. Mr Ting served in the force for about 11 years before his dismissal in mid-1997. He is now unemployed.
