PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police say two men posing as police officers robbed a Philadelphia food distribution center of about $100,000 overnight.

Chief Inspector Scott Small told reporters that police were called to Kawa Trading Corp. in the Fishtown section north of the city center shortly after 2 a.m. Wednesday.

Investigators said the center was preparing to open when two men knocked on the door, identifying themselves as officers. Officials said both were wearing police caps and one displayed something that appeared to have a police badge.

Police said the men then threatened a couple of employees with guns and stole two bags of cash worth about $100,000.

Small said the two then ripped video recording equipment from the wall and fled in a sport utility vehicle. No one was injured.
