Troopers Searching for Suspects in Del. Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:

LAUREL, Del. – Delaware State Police are looking for two suspects wanted in connection with a home invasion that occurred east of Laurel.

Troopers responded to the call just after 1 p.m. Monday on the 18000 block of Johnson Road after a neighbor called 911 and told police two men broke into a neighbor's home and tied up a woman.

According to police, the 67-year-old victim was letting her dog out when she was approached by an armed man. Authorities said the unknown suspects tied the victim up and demanded to know where the money, drugs and weapons were located.

Investigators said the suspects ransacked the home for about an hour before running off with a 9mm handgun, prescription medication, cash and jewelry.

The victim was not injured in the incident and was able to make a phone call to a neighbor for help, police said.

No detailed descriptions of the suspect were given other than that they were two males with one possibly armed with an unknown type of handgun.

Troopers ask anyone with information to contact Detective K. Archer at (302) 856-5850, ext. 224, or by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.
