Robbers Posed As AC Repairmen, Police Say

Posted September 19, 2006

— Raleigh police are looking for three men wanted in connection with a home invasion that occurred Tuesday morning.

Police said the men posed as air-conditioner repairmen and got inside a residence on Oneonta Avenue at about 8 a.m. The house's air conditioner had stopped working at about 1 a.m., but police said it was not clear if the unit had been tampered with.

Investigators said the assailants got inside the house, tied up the occupants and robbed them at gunpoint. No one was seriously injured, but one of the two victims was hit in the head with a gun.

Police said the robbers took items from the residence, including computers, computer games and a wallet.

Anyone with information that might help investigators is asked to contact the Raleigh Police Department at
