The Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department have acknowledged and are actively looking into an incident in which four people posed as FBI agents and robbed a residence.

According to the police, the four suspects entered the house while wearing tactical gear and flashlights. They allegedly used a crowbar to pry through the front door. The suspects claimed that they were FBI agents.

During the early hours of the morning when the crime took place, there were five people in the residence. According to a police report, two of the non-federal raid’s victims “were able to flee the residence and contact law enforcement.”

According to the official police incident record, the robbers took a $12,000 Rolex watch, a 2017 Audi Q3, $3,300 in cash, two iPhone 11s and two safes.

The suspects fled the scene in a silver Audi. The case remains under active investigation.
