Deputies: Armed, masked men pose as FBI agents in home invasion

HOUSTON - Deputies are searching for several home invasion suspects who posed as FBI agents in northeast Harris County.

According to investigators from the Harris County Precinct 4 Constable's Office, four masked and armed men forced their way into a home on Grandin Wood in the Humble area at around 11 a.m. Tuesday. The men told the family they were FBI agents as they ordered everyone to the ground.

Lindsey Dirden said she was visiting a friend when they heard what sounded like a bomb.

"They were like, 'Where's the money at? Where's the money at?' And we're like, 'We don't know what money you are talking about,'" said Dirden.

She said her friend was hit in the head during the ordeal. He didn't require medical attention.

Dirden estimated that the men were in the home for about 15 minutes.

"I was dragged into the living room and his mother grabbed my hand and we started praying," said Dirden.

After the men searched for money without finding any, they took two cell phones and left the home.

Investigators say the men were all wearing hooded sweatshirts and ski masks. There is currently no description of a suspect vehicle.
