Northampton County family terrorized by home invas

Quote:
Police are investigating a home invasion in which they said the robbers posed as cops.

As a man was leaving for work between 4:30 and 5 a.m., police said a car pulled up in front of his driveway in the 100 block of Walnut Street in Freemansburg, Northampton Co., and blocked him in.

Three men got out of the car, yelled, 'Cops," and showed badges and a handgun, police said. They handcuffed the man and took him into the house.
Now THAT is some scary stuff.

Re: Northampton County family terrorized by home invas

Sad thing is most employers won't let you bring guns to work or even let you keep them locked in your vehicle while you work.

I've never really understood that.

If someone were to "go postal", would they really care if they violated employee policy or got fired?

Well, sometimes you eat the bear, and sometimes, well, he eats you, so the Dude must abide!

Re: Northampton County family terrorized by home invas

What's even scarier is now you can't even trust situations where someone is shouting "police!". This type crime and its ripple effect has nothing but bad written all over it.

Re: Northampton County family terrorized by home invas

Hopefully they catch these creeps quick and there's no copycats.

Kidnapping, armed robbery, impersonating police are pretty hefty felonies ... murder ain't too much more of a stretch ie dead men tell no tales what do they have to lose at this point really.
Yeah it's scary.

Then add to the mix jumpy townspeople who might shoot at police because they don't know who they are for sure. Bad news.

Re: Northampton County family terrorized by home invas

It should have been a clue when they yelled "cops". They would not have yelled cops if they were real police.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

True John, but regardless getting jumped and suprised while you're half asleep by 3 guys with guns in the morning twighlight is disconcerting to say the least ...

Red flag : cops don't travel in triplets.

Maybe not in your area but around here it's rare you will have only one cop show up. Most times even for a traffic stop they wait to come get your license until a second cruiser shows up.
