2nd man charged with impersonating federal agent during Gwinnett Co. home invasion

Yenson Acevedo

Gwinnett County police have arrested another suspect for the home invasion on Dec. 6 during which the suspects pretended to be federal agents.

The victim told police that three armed men dressed in tactical gear grabbed him while he was walking to his apartment and forced their way inside.

Once inside the home, the three men zip-tied the victim and his son and demanded drugs and money, telling them that they were "federal agents," and that the victim had "been under surveillance for several months," officials said.  

The men fled after stealing about $3,000 worth of sneakers and jewelry.

Luis Soto was arrested during a traffic stop on Jan. 25. When officers searched Soto's home, they say they found tactical vests, ammunition, police badges, and the victim's shoes.
