“They went up to the front door of the residence, knocked on the door, wearing a bulletproof vest with the letters ‘FBI,’” Miami-Dade Police Officer Angel Rodriguez told WSFA.
The homeowners were away from the property at the time of the alleged incident, but a contractor and a housekeeper suspicious of the impostors’ answered the door.
The fake FBI agents then trapped the two inside a bathroom, locked the door, and ransacked the house for valuables.
Investigators say the suspects left the home with $30,000 in sports memorabilia and jewelry. The victims did not report any injuries.
“We feel like we were targeted actually, it wasn’t just like a random crime,” one of the victims, who didn’t want to be identified, told NBC 6 Miami. “We’re in fear of this happening again to anybody else.”
Police are asking anyone with information about the suspects to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
