Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jeffersontown Police say three men tried to dupe a would be pot buyer out of $18,000.

Officers found Carlos Cordova-Alman, Anideo Cepero-Aldana and Cesar Valdes Bejerano at the Hampton Inn and Suites near Jeffersontown on Wednesday.

They had guns and gloves, and police say were trying to stiff a pot buyer out of his money.

"They know the business backwards and forwards, and unfortunately they know about how we do our business, and that was part of their ploy here. If they did run up on their victim, they had the badge around their neck to pull out along with zipties that two sometimes use to secure prisoners," said Jeffersontown Police Major Kenneth Hatmaker.

Officers say Cordova-Alman also had a police badge. What alarms police are the measures the men took to pull off the stunt.

All three are charged with robbery.
