Real police detectives, not imposters, are out talking to people who live in the 1600 block of Elkins Ln. in Federal Hill. Around 3:45 a.m. Friday, a man and woman got a rude awakening. Three men claiming to be officers were inside their home.
"It makes me question who to answer, who to believe," said Lauren Dougherty, a neighbor.
City police say the two people inside the home had no time to respond. They were sleeping when they heard a loud noise downstairs.
"Three men all identified themselves as Baltimore City police officers. The victims were then tied up and the individuals went through their home," said Det. Jeremy Silbert, city police spokesman.
Police have not tracked down who's behind a similar incident that happened in Northeast Baltimore Monday morning. One man was shot in his home on Medford Rd. when he fought back.
This has got to be a new level....
Criminals break into someone's home... but it's STILL the fault of the police.

There's also the possibility that these may have been botched police raids and the department is trying to make them look like burglaries in order to avoid civil liability.
