UPDATE: Arrests Made After Three Robbers Hold Family at Gunpoint in Madison Co.
MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Madison County Sheriff’s Deputies are looking for three men in connection with a home invasion.
It happened at about 2:45 a.m. Tuesday in the 100-block of Deer Creek Trail, just south of Toney School Road.
“One person has been arrested,” reported Madison County Sheriff’s Investigator Brent Patterson Tuesday afternoon. “We do anticipate other charges being filed later on other individuals.”
There were 2 adults and 4 juveniles in the home at the time of the robbery.
“The juveniles made comments today that they thought they were going to die. They rounded everybody up in one room and wanted TVs and other items inside the residence,” says Patterson.
Deputies say three men broke into the home through a back door and held the family at gunpoint while they took two large flat screen TVs, several keys and a cellphone.
As the suspects were leaving, investigators say they stole a car from the driveway.
There were no injuries.
