Men pose as DEA agents in ruse to get inside home: police

Police in a Houston-area suburb are looking for two armed men who allegedly posed as Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents to try to get into a home on Tuesday.

The pair walked up to a Pearland residence about 7:15 p.m. armed with handguns and dressed in black shirts emblazoned with “D.E.A.” in the front and back, the Pearland Police Department said on its Facebook page. The suspects also wore face masks, police said.

They allegedly announced “DEA” and said they had a search warrant for the home. The woman inside told the suspects she was calling the police, prompting them to flee in a Chevrolet SUV, or possibly a Suburban or Tahoe, with paper plates, the department said.
