Police believe that at about seven o'clock P. M. , two men posing as police knocked on the door at the Kane leinfurness court (AEDT)yesterday.
They were dressed in plain clothes and holsters with handguns and handcuffs.
They did not show their police identification or search warrant.
A police spokesman said: "The two men said they were from the Sunshine crime bureau and had a search warrant to search the premises.
They were allowed to enter the house even though they did not have identification.
They stole money, gold chains, gold diamond earrings, gold necklaces and diamond rings.
None of the residents were injured.
The two men are described as dark, about 30 years old, 183 cm tall and strong.
Sunshine police are investigating.
