Three people have been arrested for posing as undercover police officers in order to rob homes and police believe there are more victims out there. Late last month, three suspects posing as LAPD undercover narcotics officers knocked on an apartment door in the 400 block of N. Normandie Avenue. They asked for “Juan Dominguez” and before she could answer, they pushed the door open and claimed they were officers doing a narcotics investigation. The female victim was then handcuffed and was made to lay face down. Another person in the apartment walked out into the living room to what was happening and was also put on the floor face down after being forced to surrender her purse. The apartment was ransacked, stealing money and other items.
