Report: Men impersonated police, claimed to have warrants

EDGEMOOR, SC (WBTV) - A Chester County man says two men came to his door claiming to be police officers with search warrants in an attempt to get into his home.

According to a report filed with the Chester County Sheriff's Office, the men knocked on the door of a home along the 5000 block of Wylie Mills Road, in Edgemoor, last Wednesday afternoon.

The man says the men claimed to be officers, but didn't look like police officers to him.

He asked to see their identification and one man reportedly pulled out his wallet and showed the man an ID that didn't say "police," have a photo or a badge on it.  The man was carrying a black pistol on his waist, the report said.

The homeowner shut the door and went to get his own gun.

According to the report, the men banged on the door and told him they had a warrant and would ram his door down.

The homeowner told them he was calling 911 and the men got into an old, silver Ford F-150 with a green hood and backed out of the driveway.

The men are described as white men appearing to be in their mid to late 30s.  One was wearing a black leather jacket and one had a blue bandanna on his head.

Deputies came out to the house and searched the area but were unable to locate the men.
