Armed FBI Impersonators Flee Burbank Home With $20K, Jewelry

BURBANK (CBS) — Three men armed with a least one weapon and carrying fake FBI badges broke into a home and stole a briefcase filled with cash, police said Wednesday.

The suspects reportedly forced their way into a small home just south of De Bell Golf Course on Fairmont Road shortly after midnight.

The men roughed up at least one of the residents and apparently fled with a briefcase carrying $20,000 in cash, a purse and some jewelry.

KNX 1070’s John Brooks reports the incident has left neighbors on this close-knit street rattled.

“I’m horrified….I mean, this is a quiet neighborhood,” said one resident. “This shocking, really shocking.”

Residents said a husband and wife in their 50s live in the home with their two college-age sons.
