    The second suspect caught on camera posing as an FBI agent during a home invasion robbery in Miami Lakes has been arrested.

    Alonso Arias, 28, of Miami, is the second suspect charged in the Jan. 30 crime and faces charges of home invasion robbery, kidnapping, false imprisonment and falsely impersonating an officer. Eglys Fuentes-Ramirez was arrested and charged in February.

    Arias and Fuentes are accused of faking their way inside the home on NW 87th Court and locking the maid and contractor inside the bathroom. They allegedly stole five duffle bags with approximately $30,000 worth of jewelry and sports memorabilia. 

    Prosecutors say Arias was wearing a bulletproof vest with "FBI" on it during the robbery.
