JACKSON COUNTY, Ala. - Four teens are in custody after they tied up and held a woman at gunpoint in a home Wednesday morning.
The Jackson County Sheriff's Office got a call about a home invasion that happened on Wann Circle in Pisgah. The victim told deputies what two young people did once they were in the home. "Came into her home armed with a handgun, tied her up, and took some other firearms from the residence and left," Sheriff Chuck Phillips said.
They didn't get far. "Scottsboro Police Department intercepted the vehicle as it was coming into town," Sheriff Phillips explains.
Deputies say there were four people in the vehicle, and later determined all of the teens had a hand in the home invasion.
Deputies arrested 16-year-old Tyson Woods, 17-year-old Dylan McQueen, 18-year-old Hector Guevara, and 16-year-old Jallen Hammonds. Deputies say all four are from Scottsboro.
They are all charged as adults, facing charges that include burglary, kidnapping, robbery, and menacing.
Deputies say the stolen property was found in the car.
The Sheriff's Office says this situation is unusual in the county. "You know, you hear of it in bigger cities, Huntsville, Birmingham, Chattanooga, but it seldom happens in our area," Sheriff Phillips says.
Deputies say the victim was not injured.
The investigation is ongoing, but deputies believe the teens might have known someone in the home and that's why they targeted it.
