Five men break into Texas home dressed as Police officers
NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Five men dressed as police officers broke into a townhome near downtown Houston and violently robbed the homeowner.
Officials said the crooks wore Houston Police Department raid jackets, carried guns and tasers, and had fake badges when they kicked down the door of the home in the 1800 block of Wheeler at Chartres shortly after noon Monday, Dec. 26.
The suspects beat up the homeowner before tying him up and ransacking the house, police said.
A responding officer at first thought the men were real officers, but then became suspicious when he saw their suburban, officials said.
The men took off when the officer began questioning them.
Two of the suspects were apprehended with the help of police dogs.
Lee Brown Jr., 30, and Kevin Williams, 26, have been charged with Aggravated Robbery with a Deadly Weapon.
