The NYPD cop accused of spying on behalf of the People’s Republic of China apparently exaggerated his military service record to his brothers in blue, The Post has learned.
Baimadajie Angwang, a suspended community affairs officer with the NYPD’s 111th Precinct in Queens, was honored by the Police Benevolent Association at a November event last year to celebrate veterans, according to a since-deleted Facebook post on the union’s page.
“The PBA honored its veterans at today’s delegates meeting with PO Baimadajie Angwang presenting the colors. PO Angwang is a Sgt. in the USMC and served 1 tour in Iraq and 2 tours in Afghanistan,” the post reads alongside photos of Angwang posing with the union brass.
The USMC confirmed in a statement that Angwang, 33, was in fact a sergeant with the Devil Dogs but said he only served one tour in Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom between July 2013 and February 2014.
