Three masked robbers entered a Burbank residence late Tuesday night demanding cash and walked out with a woman's purse containing $20,000 in cash as well as assorted jewels.

Three men wearing ski masks banged on the door of a home shortly after midnight and flashed badges to a married couple and their teenage son inside, according to Burbank Police Sgt. Adam Cornils. One of the invaders had a gun.

The suspects took off but if you see three dudes with black masks and black clothes and black gloves demanding money, their FBI badges are FAKE! Call Burbank police with any information at (818) 238-3000.
