Police have arrested three men who they say posed as police officers as they broke into two homes overnight.

The home invasions happened just after three Friday morning at two homes in east Frankfort.

The first was at a home on Maverick Trail. Police say two men, armed with guns, forced their way inside and demanded money, threatening the person inside.

Police say the men also went to a home across the street on Fiesta Way, where they tried to get inside, but couldn't. Police say the men then told the 23-year-old woman inside, Samantha Conway, that they were police officers, there to serve a warrant.

Police say the men then forced her into a bedroom.

"They put me in my bedroom and kept my baby with them in the other room," says Samantha Conway.

"They ransacked the house and stole personal items," says Major Fred Deaton, with the Frankfort Police Department.

Police say as the men tried to leave, they noticed police in the area, and tried to get away.

"They were arrested after a brief pursuit," says Major Deaton.

"Thank God they were arrested. She was too young to know anything happened," says Samantha Conway, speaking about her daughter Azlynn.

Three men are now in jail, charged in connection with the crimes.

28-year-old Johnathan Jackson is charged with two counts of complicity to first degree robbery. He was outside waiting for the other two men with a van. 19-year-old Jeffrey Wheat is charged with robbery, unlawful imprisonment, impersonating a police officer and possession of a controlled substance. 20-year-old Justin Beasley is charged with robbery, unlawful imprisonment, impersonating a police officer and possession of marijuana.

Police say more charges are possible.
