HUMBLE, Texas – Investigators are asking for the public’s help tracking down two suspects who reportedly posed as federal agents during an armed robbery.
It happened on May 26, 2012, around 10 a.m. at a car dealership near the 19000 block of US 59 North in Humble.
Police said the victim was at the dealership when a man wearing a "Federal Agent" jacket and a pistol at his waistband approached him.
The victim said the suspect asked for his name, then stated that he was a federal agent and that the victim was under arrest.
The suspect forced the victim chest-down on a vehicle, searched him, and put him in handcuffs.
The victim said he was then placed into a 2004 gray Dodge Durango, driven by another unidentified suspect with a pistol in his waistband.
The men drove the victim to a second location, where they robbed him and forced him out of the vehicle, police said.
Investigators on Tuesday released a composite sketch of the first suspect.
