RAMSEY - Police are searching for two armed robbers who talked their way into a jewelry store claiming to be FBI agents. 

Investigators say they gained entry to Aydin Coin and Jewelry in Ramsey at 11:22 a.m. Monday by telling employees they were "investigating a meth lab."

The men were wearing goggles and respirators which hid their faces on the store surveillance video.

Chief Bryan Gurney says a suspect holding an FBI badge pulled out a gun and forced the owners, a woman and her two adult sons into a back room. The victims were zip-tied while the two men robbed the safe and display cases. 

Soon after the suspects left, one of the owners freed himself and ran next door for help.

Police are trying to identify a possible getaway car that sped off southbound on Route 17.

Anyone with information is asked to call Ramsey Police.
