Captain Mackie, 104th Precinct Executive Officer, passed along the following information regarding an incident that occurred today in Maspeth.
Very important - NO ONE can come into your home without a warrant. NO ONE. If someone from the "police" say they have to enter, call 911 and a sector car will be dispatched to see if these individuals are legitimate.

Today on the 66-00 block of Jay Avenue, there was a Home Invasion Robbery involving Police Impersonation at 1320 hours. Two (2) dark skinned male blacks (both wearing blue waist length jackets with "Police" written on the shoulders and wearing blue slacks) displaying 2 silver handguns did force their way into the front door and went into the basement apartment and proceeded to the rear bedroom, where they ransacked the room for some time and then left through the front door on foot in an unknown direction of flight. It is unknown if any items were taken at this time. This was reported at 1350 hours to 911 by the basement occupant (elderly female, who was uninjured). There are cameras in the vicinity and detectives from the Police Impersonation Investigation Unit are investigating.
