A single mother-of-two from Florida says she woke up early Sunday morning to find two masked burglars pointing guns at her while posing as SWAT officers.
The home invasion took place just after 6.30am at the home of a 39-year-old woman and her sons, ages eight and 11, on Beckman Drive in Windermere.
According to the victim and investigators with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, one of the thieves was sporting a skull mask, while his accomplice was wearing a SWAT lanyard.

After ransacking the woman’s drawers in search of valuables, the pair fled.
