BATON ROUGE - Three people were arrested in Baton Rouge Wednesday after investigators said they impersonated police officers, broke into someone's house and demanded money and drugs.

Investigators said the three went to a home on St. Rose Ave. around 3:15 a.m. and claimed to be police before bursting into the home through a window. Police said once inside, the three threatened the people who lived there with a gun and knife and demanded their money and marijuana.
Officers said they fled the scene and were caught a short time later. Police said they also recovered the stolen money and drugs.
All three suspects were booked into the parish prison.
