The Philadelphia police are on the case of a home invasion in which the suspects showed badges and claimed to be Philadelphia officers.

Police were called to the home on the 4700 block of Deveraux Avenue in Philadelphia's Wissinoming section around 1 p.m.

When they arrived, officers found two people inside, handcuffed and the home ransacked.

The victims told police that there were three suspects who were wearing badges around their necks, claimed to be Philadelphia officers and made their way inside the home.
