Police impersonators commit home invasion robbery

MARYSVILLE — Marysville Police detectives are investigating a home invasion robbery that occurred on the morning of Sunday, Nov. 11.

Just before 8:30 a.m., Marysville Police officers were dispatched to a home located in the 3800 block of 118th Place NE.

A couple at the home reported that, about 40 minutes prior, two men had knocked on their door and identified themselves as police officers.

The men were both wearing clothing and equipment that led the couple to believe they were law enforcement officers.

During the robbery, the couple was restrained, and at one point a stun-gun was used on the male victim.

Neither of the two victims suffered any injuries that required medical attention.

The two suspects later fled the residence with an undisclosed amount of cash and two handguns.

Police continue to investigate the robbery and are attempting to identify both suspects.

One suspect is described as a white male in his late 20s, standing 5 feet, 10 inches tall, with a thin to medium build and short dark hair.

The other suspect is also a white male, this one in his early to mid 30s, standing 5 feet, 9 inches tall, with a stocky build and short reddish or strawberry blond hair.

Both men were clean-shaven.

Police believe the residence was specifically targeted and was not random in nature.

"We are very concerned criminals are impersonating police officers in order to gain access to their victims and commit crimes," Marysville Police Cmdr. Commander Robb Lamoureux said. "Identifying them and putting them in jail will be a top priority."

Marysville Police are asking that anyone who has information regarding this crime to contact Detective Shackleton at 360-363-8300.
