Update:

The two men who had been believed to be posing as detectives by state police in the area have been identified as actual officers of a separate agency.

Daily Voice has updated the story to remove the image.

Original report:

A pair of men posing as police officers have been asking homeowners in Northern Westchester if they have security systems in place, according to state police.

The two men were observed in what may be a gray 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee, driving around a residential neighborhood near the border of the hamlet of Katonah in Bedford and the town of Somers on Monday, July 8.

They reportedly identified themselves as police detectives using a fake badge, and stated they were looking for video evidence of burglaries in the area, according to police. When the homeowner pointed out the home surveillance cameras, the subjects promptly left, said police.

The State Police are both looking for any person who may have additional information regarding these two individuals, and advising the public of this criminal activity in the Somers area.

Any person who may have information that may lead to the identification and location of the two pictured subjects is asked to please contact Investigator Becerra of the New York State Police, SP Somers, at (914) 769-2600. Please reference case# 9020781.
