Three robbed outside Smithfield home

Posted May 16, 2012

— Three men were robbed at gunpoint Monday night in the front yard of a Smithfield home, police said Wednesday.

Police said the men were on Glenn Street talking when three men traveling in a tan or gold car stopped in front of the home and asked for directions.

Two armed men then got out of the car and took cash and cellphones from the victims.

No one was injured.

Police said the robbery appears to be random. The suspects were traveling in a gold or tan four-door car.

Anyone with information is asked to call investigators at 919-989-8835.

    This is the exact same story reported a couple of weeks ago. Don't tell me they came back and robbed the same men again.
