NYC: Five men dressed as NYPD cops break into house, steal $30K in jewelry

A gang of thieves dressed like NYPD cops pulled off a home invasion in Queens early Tuesday, making off with a Rolex watch and $30,000 in jewelry.

Police said five armed men wearing NYPD knit hats and bullet-proof vests forced their way into a basement apartment in Ozone Park shortly after 5:30 a.m. and zip-tied a 39-year-old man and 33-year-old woman inside.

The thieves grabbed a Rolex watch and two gold chains valued at $30,000 before fleeing the scene in a van, cops said.

Police said the 39-year-old victim was hit in the back of the head and taken to Jamaica Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
