VIDEO: Intruders sought in Maitland-area home invasion claimed to be cops

Orange County deputies say no one was injured

MAITLAND, Fla. – Orange County sheriff’s deputies are searching for intruders who ordered residents of a Maitland-area apartment to the ground during a home invasion.

The break-in was reported at 2:39 a.m. at The Bentley at Maitland Apartments on Giant Oak Lane.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said deputies were called to the complex and spoke with the victims, who said the intruders entered the home and demanded everyone to get on the ground.

The assailants then searched the home before leaving in a vehicle, deputies said.

Video released by the sheriff’s office Thursday evening shows men armed with guns busting down the door while they claimed to be law enforcement officers.

“Sheriff’s department, get on the ground,” one man said in the footage.

No one was injured.

It’s not known if the men stole anything from the home.
