Man Arrested in Miami Lakes Home Invasion With FBI Impersonators

A South Florida man was arrested in connection with a Miami Lakes home invasion robbery where one of the suspects was wearing an FBI vest.

Eglys Fuentes-Ramirez, 41, of Coral Gables, faces charges of home invasion robbery, kidnapping, false imprisonment and falsely impersonating an officer in the January 30 incident.

Prosecutors say Ramirez and another man, who was wearing a bulletproof vest with "FBI" on it, entered a home on NW 87th Court and allegedly locked two victims -- the maid and the contractor -- in the bathroom as they robbed the residence.

The pair allegedly stole five duffle bags with approximately $30,000 worth of jewelry and sports memorabilia.

NBC 6 spoke with the homeowner soon after the crime.

"We feel like we were targeted actually, it wasn't just like a random crime," said one of the victims, who didn't want to be identified. "We're in fear of this happening again to anybody else."

Ramirez confessed his involvement with the robbery to authorities, a police report stated.

He is being held in jail without bond. Attorney information was not available.

Police are still looking for the second suspect who was wearing the FBI vest. Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
