I assume they got it from the scammers. It wouldn't be the first time they borrowed someone's picture.
I guess if the cops were a bit more internet savvy they would have done a reverse image search on it. Does the Fourth Amendment require reverse image searches before probable cause can be found? Or-- a better question -- does Anthony Kennedy think it should? Stay tuned!
Now I have never been to the Police Academy so I don't know proper police procedures. If a company came to me, a sworn officer of the law, and stated that they were a victim of credit card fraud and forwarded me picture of the alleged perpetrator, I might inquire where and how were they able to obtain a picture. Thieves are not usually in the habit of posing for pictures for the companies they steal from
