Police Search For Fake Cops Who Robbed Store
Two men are on the run after impersonating policemen and storming a currency exchange store in Sydney's north-west.
The duo entered the store on the first floor of a building on Rowe Street, Eastwood, at about 1.20pm Wednesday, March 20, telling a staff member and a customer that they were police officers.
NSW police said the men, dressed in a dark suit with sunglasses, gloves and carrying what are believed to be handcuffs, forced the customer to the ground before jumping over the store counter and emptying out the safe.
They took the pair's wallets before fleeing the scene.
Nobody was injured.
It's believed the men entered and exited the store using a staircase from another shop on the ground floor.
Police have now released CCTV footage of the two suspects.
One man is described as being of Caucasian appearance with a tanned complexion, aged in his late 20s, about 180cm tall, with short black hair, and a trimmed beard.
Another is described as being of Caucasian appearance with a tanned complexion, aged in his late 20s, about 180cm tall, with short black hair, and a trimmed beard.
