Authorities in Garden Grove are looking for two suspects who pretended to be police officers while conducting a home-invasion robbery yesterday in Orange County. "Garden Grove police said the men gained access to the home on the 10500 block of Woodbury Road after claiming to be police at about 5 p.m." reports abc7. Once inside the residence, the posing pair tied up a man and an 11-year-old boy, then tore the home apart looking for goods to steal. "The men got away with an unknown amount of cash and jewelry." The victims were not hurt during the course of the robbery. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Garden Grove Police Department at (714) 741-5800.
