On Tuesday, Jan. 20, at approximately 6 a.m., three male hispanics and one male white entered the victim’s home.
One suspect entered the house by crawling through the rear window of the home. Once inside the location, the suspect opened the rear sliding glass door to usher in the other three suspects.
As the suspects moved quietly through the home, they encountered one of the victims who was sleeping on the couch. Holding the victim at gunpoint, they tied him up and led him upstairs where the other victim was sleeping. After both victims were tied up, a blanket was placed over one of the victim’s head.
The suspects ransacked the home, taking one of the victim’s wallet, cell phone and miscellaneous electronic devices.
The suspects left the location in the victim’s dark grey BMW (License #7EAV467), which was parked in the garage.
If you see this vehicle, please do not approach. The individuals involved in this crime are considered armed and dangerous. Please call 911 or your local sheriff or police department.
