Police have arrested one suspect and are searching for a second suspect in connection with a home invasion robbery in which two men impersonated officers in order to gain entry into an Antioch home in May, police said. The victim told police that around 1:20 a.m. on May 25, two men knocked on his door disguised in partial law enforcement uniforms and claimed to serve a search warrant. The two men entered the home and began searching through the residence and attempted to burglarize the home, police said.
The victim confronted the burglars with questions and the two suspects then fled the scene, according to police. No weapons were reported in the robbery, police said. Police discovered that there had been reports of unreturned volunteer uniforms and traced them back to Kelsey Scales, 19, of Antioch. Police identified Scales as a suspect and the victims confirmed Scales’ involvement in the attempted burglary.
Police searched Scales’ residence and found the two uniforms used in the robbery. Scales was arrested on July 12 in connection with burglary, possession of stolen property, attempted auto theft and impersonating an officer. The second suspect has been described as a black man between 25 and 30-years-old, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighing roughly 150 pounds. Anyone with further information about this incident should contact Det.
