Recovery of Stolen Car May Bring New Leads in Home Invasion Case
There is a new clue in the search for three men police say pistol-whipped an elderly man, tied him and his wife up inside their home, and then robbed them.
The white Ford Expedition taken by the criminals has been found.
According to police, the vehicle was spotted by a man out hunting near the 21 thousand block of SR 235 -- in the woods between Alachua and LaCrosse.
Officials say the hunter recognized the Porsche emblem on the hitch cover from previous news stories about the robbery and called 911.
Deputies then swept the vehicle for DNA evidence.
The car was among several items stolen from an 80-year-old man and his 76-year-old wife during a home invasion on September 6th.
Officials say the car appears to be in good condition with nothing missing.
The car keys, however, were not found with the car.
