Sgt. Jonathan Rogers told Cartersville Patch that jewelry and cash were taken during the home invasion, but the total value is unknown at this time.
Bartow County sheriff's authorities are investigating a "violent" home invasion by a man and woman wearing shirts that read "POLICE" in big letters, according to the press release.
Sheriff Clark Millsap said deputies and investigators responded to the 1:44 p.m. call to 911 from a Cottage Walk home in Cartersville.
The homeowner told authorities his wife and infant were at the home when the African-American man and Caucasian woman knocked on the door, then used zip ties to restrain the wife and took items from the home.
The victim was visibly shaken, but she and her child were unharmed, authorities say. Deputies report a shot was fired inside the home during the incident.
Neighborhood witnesses report the impersonators were driving a black, four-door Lexus with a Georgia license plate.
