Three men have been arrested and charged with impersonating Amazon workers to commit a violent home invasion and robbery in North Arlington, the Bergen County District Attorney’s Office said.
Jazmir Carter, 25, of Stroudsburg, Pa., Michael Carter, 26, and Ameer Holcomb, 42, of Newark were charged Friday with the Feb. 21 robbery, the district attorney’s office said. The trio posed as Amazon delivery drivers and forced their way into the home after the landlord opened the door, according to the prosecutor’s office.
They then beat the owner with a gun and stole cash, sneakers and jewelry, the prosecutor’s office said.

The three men face a slew of charges including armed robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery and burglary and weapons offences. They have all been in custody since Saturday.
