A Sandy couple say two men pretending to be police tied them up at gun point and robbed them.
About 10 a.m. Thursday, the couple, who are in their 80s, answered a knock on their door near 200 E. Pioneer Ave. (8530 South) to find two men on the porch. One wore a badge around his neck, said he was a police officer and asked if they could come in and talk to the couple, said Sandy Police Sgt. John Arnold.
But he wasn't a cop. As soon as the men came in, they pushed the couple down and tied them up with plastic ties while a third man held them at gunpoint, Arnold said. As the couple lay face-down on the floor, the robbers spent the next 10 minutes ransacking the house.
