Two gunmen claiming to be police officers broke into a Sandy apartment early Thursday morning in an apparent quest for drugs, but left empty-handed.
Sandy police Sgt. Jon Arnold said officers were dispatched to an apartment near 745 E. Lazon Drive (9140 South) about 12:30 a.m. Thursday after receiving a 911 call reporting the home invasion.
The victim, a man in his 20s, said he answered a knock at his door by the men claiming they were "law enforcement." The victim tried to look out the door's peephole, but the suspects were shining a flashlight directly into it; then the suspects broke in the door.
