    Police in Miami-Dade County, Florida, are looking to identify two men who impersonated FBI agents to gain access to a home in Miami Lakes on January 30. Miami-Dade Police Department released security footage on February 20 showing what they said was a “home invasion robbery,” and appealed for help to find the suspects. The owner of the targeted home told CBS Miami that the men “obviously used the FBI lettering on one of their bulletproof vests to get in and then they kidnapped my workers — a construction man and a cleaning lady — and put them in the bathroom.” According to the same report, the suspects stole $30,000 worth of jewelry and sports memorabilia from the home. A reward is being offered by both the family and Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers for anyone who can identify the men. Credit: Miami-Dade Police via Storyful
