OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Oklahoma City Police Department is searching for two suspects who are pretending to be law enforcement officers.

Master Sergeant Gary Knight said so far, there are three known victims. In each case, at least one suspect came out with a badge, claiming to be with the U.S. Marshals Service.

For two of the incidents, a suspect showed up at the victim’s homes and presented a fake badge. When the residents weren’t paying attention, the suspects stole cash or credit cards out of wallets.

In another case, a man was walking at Lake Hefner when a suspect pointed a gun at him, again claiming to be with the U.S. Marshals.

Police were able to get surveillance photos of the two men after they used one of the victim’s credit cards at a local store. There were several charges at other retailers as well.

During the robberies, Knight said the suspects were carrying badges, radios, and pistols.

“Fear is probably the thing they are preying upon,” said Msgt. Knight, “They knock on the doors, present themselves as police officers, and then end up robbing the person.”

If anyone has information on the suspects, contact Crime Stoppers at 405-235-7300.
