Warning issued after people impersonating police rob house

Home owners are being warned to exercise vigilance after two people impersonating police stole money from a woman’s home on the state’s Central Coast.

About 6pm on Wednesday (19 August 2015), two men knocked on the door of a home in Mann Street, West Gosford, and told the female occupant they were police officers executing a search warrant.

Once they were allowed inside the home, they ‘searched’ the premises and took cash belonging to the woman.


They left a short time later in a navy blue sedan. The occupant was not injured in the incident and notified officers from Brisbane Water Local Area Command yesterday (Thursday 20 August 2015).

The men have only been described as being in their late 30s and dressed in casual clothing.

Anyone with information that could assist the investigation is urged to come forward.
