Fake Cops Targeting Hispanics In Home Invasions

Fake cops appear to be targeting Hispanics in home invasions that are occurring in one Eastern Carolina county.

They're happening in the Dudley area of Wayne County. The latest happened on Saturday.

Deputies say in all of the cases, at least five men force their way into the homes, assault and rob the victims. The gunmen displayed law enforcement insignias and represented themselves as cops. All the the victims have been of Hispanic descent.

The first home invasion happened on August 10th on Eagles Nest Rd., the second on August 25th on Holloman Lane, and the third on September 5th on Gold Park Drive.

Deputies say it is possible that more of these attacks have gone unreported to authorities.

If you have any information about these cases or the suspects involved, please call Crimestoppers at 919-735-2255 or send a text message to 919-273-6585.

    lonnie, lucy, stick up; as you can see, never, ever cloud the issue with facts or common sense. always tip toe around those truths we hold self evident in a pointless attempt to remain politically correct. i happen to agree with your collective assessments.

    well i can see the fear in calling the cops, since they were robbed by so called fake cops! duh. and for lonnie, lucy and stick up, if you live in little ol southeastern nc, the MAJORITY of mexicans here are the legal, hardworking type who just want to make a better opportunity for their family--not like in the big cities. i suppose your ancestors popped out of the ground on US soil? or did they rob it from native americans? (which by the way are also ancestors of mexicans). people with your attitude are the reasons gangs exist. think about that.

    I am amazed that people have so little compassion. Does not matter if you are "illegal" or not this should not happen to anyone. Just where was there a mention of drugs etc.. Were there any children involved? What ever happened to christianity in this country? Is it gone for ever?

    Hispanics have traditionally avoided break-ins and robberies because they live in squalor. However, black people have realized now that hispanics rule the cocaine trade and have large sums of cash and cocaine stored in their homes. Stop selling dope and you will stop getting robbed. Or, you can go back to Mexico and be murdered by a rival cartel.

    Such a sad issue, then it could be real cops like the ones in washington that were targeting hispanics in cars, stopping them taking wallets and stealing money, until the FBI got involved.
