As the saying goes, “be careful who you let in your home”. According to Fox 2 Detroit, authorities are currently investigating two recent events of strangers getting into homes by posing as federal agents. While none of the incidents have turned violent, in one of the incidents the strangers reportedly took property.
According to Fox 2, one incident occurred on April 20th in the 3,000 block of Cherry Creek Lane and the most recent incident occurred on May 6 in the 37,000 block of Hacker St., near Metropolitan Parkway and Mound Road. Now the police say that although the two incidents are similar it is unknown if they are related

Layla Asoufe told FOX 2’s Amy Lange her family woke up to three men with long guns ringing their doorbell and yelling to be let inside. The men were wearing all black and had FBI shirts. Asoufe also says she saw at least one of the men have a badge of some sort.
She says the men told her they wanted to check all the homes but she demanded a search warrant. They said they were looking for a family member but a niece told them she recognized one of the men from a photo on social media.
Sterling Heights Police and federal authorities are currently investigating these separate incidents but police say if you have any question about anyone at your door call 911.
