HUSTISFORD, Wis. (WFRV) – Deputies in Dodge County are looking for two men who posed as law enforcement officers during a reported armed home invasion.
According to the Dodge County Sheriff’s Office, the incident happened around 6:30 a.m. on January 28 in Hustisford.

Once the suspects finished their search of the house, they fled in a white pickup truck, deputies say. The suspects are reported as being white men, wearing masks and one of them possibly has a southern accent.
