They were helping someone move in. Armed robbers showed up and stole their cars, cops say

Four armed men and a woman forced their way into a home through the back door of a Northwest Miami-Dade home and demanded money and car keys from the three people inside, according to the Miami-Dade police department.

The five robbers then took off in the victims’ rental cars — a 2016 silver Ford Fusion and a 2017 silver Chevy Tahoe, police said.

The armed home invasion robbery happened at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 5500 block of Northwest 194th Lane.

Police say the victims were helping an acquaintance move in.

No one was injured.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
