Authorities are warning motorists about a pair of thieves masquerading as cops. Metro police say the two men impersonating police officers robbed a motorist early Sunday morning in Southeast Washington. 

The driver was robbed about 3 a.m. in the 4800 block of Texas Ave SE, according to a police spokesperson. The driver was ordered out of his car by two men carrying holstered guns, and wearing dark colored vests with the word "Police" written across the front. The pair took $400 and left in a dark colored, late model Chevrolet Impala sedan. 

D.C. police are reminding the public that anyone pulled over in a traffic stop can ask for identification from an officer.
