HARVEST, Ala. (WHNT) – Madison Sheriff deputies and S.W.A.T. team officials responded to a home invasion robbery on Wall Triana and Fords Chapel Road.
Sergeant T.A. Miller said three people were involved in a home invasion and robbery around 3:00 a.m. at a house on Gardendale Road. Some of the victims at the home recognized the suspects as people who had been to their party earlier and alerted the police.
