Impostors posing as federal agents in Sterling Heights

Suspects have been going to people's homes in Sterling Heights claiming to be federal agents, but that couldn't be further from the truth.

In one incident, the victims were robbed.

Layla Asoufe says three men came to her home around 5:30 a.m. on Tuesday and identified themselves as FBI agents.
She says they were even wearing black hats and FBI t-shirts. They also had badges and were armed with guns.
But, what they didn't have was a search warrant, and that made Layla and another relative suspicious. 

"I said 'why don't you have the paper.. .you must have paper to check my home...OK if you have paper but if not you can't check any home.'"
The same thing happened last week Monday to someone else in Sterling Heights on Cherry Creek Drive--only this time there were two men and a woman and they were claiming to be ATF agents.
While they didn't have any paperwork, this time the homeowner allowed them to search.
That homeowner was robbed, but thankfully in the case of Layla and her family, the men took off after she said she was going to call 911 and her niece recognized one of them.
