Calabasas Home Invaders Posed as Workers


A team of home invasion robbers who stole cash and jewelry worth more than $200,000 from a home in Calabasas posed as construction workers.

Two men wearing orange safety vests were recorded on security video ringing the doorbell of the home earlier this month, before forcing their way inside.

They beat up and used a stun gun on an 18-year-old, then tied the teen’s hands with plastic zip ties and spent about 20 minutes ransacking the home, according to L.A. County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Chuck Calderero.

“We suspect they’re probably responsible for several similar crimes,” he said.

Once inside the men who knocked on the door were joined by a third thief, and the trio fled in a pair of black or dark gray sedans -- one a 2010-2015 BMW 7-series; the other a 2016-2017 Chevy Impala.

The City of Calabasas has offered a $5,000 reward for information.
