Durham police seeking suspects in June home invasion

Posted July 9, 2014

— Durham police are seeking the public's help to find three or four people responsible for a June 15 home invasion on Lynn Road near Holloway Street. 

According to investigators, a man outside the home was approached by several people at about 10:30 p.m. and forced inside at gunpoint. 

The robbers forced several people inside the home to remove their pants and empty their pockets. There were at least 10 people inside the home when the robbery occurred, and two people were treated at a local hospital after being pistol-whipped. 

The robbers took cellphones and an Xbox from the victims. 

The robbers allegedly said they were in the wrong home during the incident, police said. They possibly left in a blue four-door vehicle. 

Anyone with information is asked to call Durham police at 919-560-4281, extension 29119, or Crime Stoppers at 919-683-1200. Crime Stoppers is offering a reward for information leading to arrests in connection with the incident.

    Is this a real news story and request for help or someone's outline for a screenplay that accidentally got onto WRAL's website? This is a useless bit of 'information'.

    "The robbers allegedly said they were in the wrong home during the incident" which means they intended to rob a drug dealer and not common people.

    Betchya the cops could keep an eye on the area, watch traffic, and determine who the dealer in the area is and find the robbers based on thier connection.

    It's not rocket science catching people who don't bother to hide either.
