Craig says the officers took money and a phone from two people at a Detroit gas station on July 21. One victim was struck with a gun.
Craig says someone took pictures and alerted police. The officers were not on duty during the time of the alleged crimes, but were wearing police badges.
He says "99.9 percent" of Detroit officers are hard-working and honest.
The two officers were arrested Saturday but released Monday evening.
Both officers have been suspended.
