Detectives have released surveillance video showing police impersonators robbing hundreds of thousands of dollars from a Philadelphia food distributor.
The robbery took place at Kawa Trading along the 1700 block of Delaware Avenue in the Fishtown section of the city at 2 a.m. on Wednesday, police said.
In the video, the men, who were wearing hats that say "POLICE," can be seen getting out of an SUV and using a flashlight outside the facility's door. Investigators say they identified themselves as officers to get the two employees inside to let them in.
Once inside, the men, one of whom had a badge hanging from his neck, led the employees to the office at gunpoint. They forced the victims to lay on the ground as they stole $87,700 in cash. Police initially believed the men stole $100,000, but the amount was later revised.
The men then fled in a 1990s sports utility vehicle and remain at large.
The first suspect is described as 20-30 years old with a stocky build. He was wearing a light blue medical mask, white shirt and the police hat. The other man is in his mid-to-late 20s. He wore a black shirt and the baseball cap.
Anyone with information is asked to call Philadelphia Police at 215.686.TIPS.
