Authorities are searching for a pair of thieves who posed as police officers during an armed home invasion in northwest Miami-Dade.
The home invasion happened Sunday afternoon at the house in the 2200 block of Northwest 104th Terrace, Miami-Dade police said.
Police said the two suspects were wearing body armor when they walked through the front door, identified themselves as police and tied up a woman and her husband.
The suspects ransacked the home, demanding money and jewelry. No one was injured but two children, ages 3 and 12, were present, police said.
"They went in and they did what they did. They took what they found. And that's all I can really say. It's really horrifying," victim Nathalie Borrego said. "We just happened to be here. I don't believe we were a target."
Police said the suspects fled with about $500 and an undisclosed amount of jewelry. They were in a black Jeep Cherokee.
Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
