They took several different pill bottles with medication, a colt .38 revolve, $320 in cash, a Fender guitar and a gold watch. The fake cops also vandalized three cars parked at the residence.
After the trio left the victims notified 911 operators of the robbery and deputies descended upon the area. They were arrested a short time later at the intersection of Highway 64 and Interstate 24 and deputies found items taken from the residence inside their vehicle.
