Two Men Force Way into Palatka Home, Take Money and Pills
Palatka police officers responded to a home early Sunday morning in reference to a home invasion robbery.
The house, located in the 200 block of Redbud Lane, was occupied by a 46-year-old woman and two children.
The two children told police they heard knocking at about 12:15 a.m., but they did not answer the door. The door was forced open, and two unidentified men entered the home.
The adult and children were tied up, and the suspects demanded drugs and money from the adult. The suspects then took money and about 150 Oxycontin pills from the woman, according to the Palatka Police Department.
Suspect #1 was described as a black man who is about 5'9" and wearing a dark hoodie with a mask covering part of his face. He was armed with a rifle or shotgun.
Suspect #2 is a white man wearing a dark-colored, long-sleeved hoodie with some type of mask covering his face. He was armed with a handgun.
The suspects left the victims tied up and fled the home. They reportedly left the area in a car, according to the release.
The victims were not injured during the robbery.
