HOUSTON, Tx. – Police say that two armed men dressed in mock DEA apparel were caught on surveillance video when they tried to gain entry to a Houston suburb home.
The image released from the investigation clearly shows the two men wearing jeans and black t-shirts with the acronym “D.E.A.” printed across the front. The men also appeared to be wearing black ski masks and gloves and were reportedly armed with handguns.
The two men allegedly announced that they were “DEA” and said they had a search warrant for the home.
The woman inside told the suspects she was calling the police, prompting the pair to flee in a Chevrolet SUV, or possibly a Suburban or Tahoe, with paper plates, the department said.
Pearland Police Department published the following post on Facebook on Wednesday.
The homeowner’s surveillance camera caught some clear shots of the imposters.
The two suspects are still on the loose and police are looking for any help from the public in identifying the pair.
Looks like these guys got together and brainstormed a way to avoid breaking and entering charges but somehow found a way to end up in a whole lot more trouble.
Makes you wonder what they were planning on doing once they got inside. Why not sprinkle some additional felonies in there?
Also… where did these guys get their costumes? You don’t often see DEA agents running around in Nike’s and screen printed t-shirts.
Good call from the homeowner to spot the difference.
