MARANA, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Marana say two people pretending to be police officers robbed a home of around $50,000.

Marana police say the man and woman were in plain clothes and the male suspect wore what appeared to be a police badge on his waistband.

The two suspects went to the house in Continental Ranch around 11 a.m. Tuesday.

They told the homeowner - who is in his early 80s - that they had a warrant to search the property for counterfeit money.

The suspects then searched the home and took the cash.

Police say no weapon was seen nor implied during the incident and they don’t believe the incident was drug-related.

Authorities have released home surveillance video and photographs of the suspects in hope of making arrests in the case.
