A house in D.C. was burglarized Wednesday by four people in tactical gear claiming to be from the FBI, the police said Thursday.
The D.C. police said the four used a crowbar to force their way through the front door of the house on Bay Street in Southeast, near the Stadium-Armory Metro station, at about 6 a.m. Wednesday. Three of them had guns.
There were five people in the house at the time. The burglars told them they were with the FBI and stole phones, a Rolex watch, two safes and $3,300 in cash, and drove off in a silver Audi Q3 SUV that belonged to someone in the house.
Police said there is evidence that one woman was tied up; the other four people said they were bound as well.
It’s not known whether the burglars and victims knew each other, the police said; there were no serious injuries.
