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.
The homeowner’s home surveillance video captured the incident. Authorities are asking anyone with information on the suspects to contact the Pearland Police Department.
