Men who posed as police officers in Alvin home invasion sought

ALVIN, Texas - Authorities are searching for two men who posed as police officers during a home invasion in Alvin.

The Brazoria County Sheriff's Department says at around 2:30 a.m. Friday, the unknown men drove up in what looked like a police unit -- a white Crown Victoria with red and blue strobes lights on. Two men kicked in the door of the residence in the 1000 block of CR 147 and said they were police officers.

"Was like, 'I'm police.' They put us on the floor and were looking for money and clothes; take it off, that's it," the victim told Local 2.

The men stormed in with guns, and tied up the residents' tape in the living room. Their four young children were also inside at the time, but they stayed in their bedrooms unharmed.

Deputies say the duo could only be identified as a black male and a Hispanic male. One suspect was wearing red sweat pants and red/white/black shoes.

The men left the residence in a white Crown Victoria with a red and blue strobe light on the roof. They fled with about $1,200 in cash and the victims' white 2011 Chevy Tahoe bearing Texas license plate number: CBT 0223.

No one was hurt in the incident.
