TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -- Pima County authorities say a 29-year-old man has been arrested after three people posed as police officers to gain entry into a Tucson-area home to conduct a home invasion robbery.
 
The Sheriff's Department says two men and a woman dressed as police entered the home Thursday night, demanding money and drugs.
 
The two men and two residents began fighting, and the residents were able to detain one of the suspects. The other two intruders left in a dark brown SUV.
 
The Sheriff's Office says Alberto Herrera was arrested and jailed on suspicion of charges that included burglary, impersonating a peace officer and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument.
