Officers responded to 1625 15th Street for a “home invasion” in which the suspects might still be inside the home.  Upon their arrival, Officers found the homeowner sitting on the front steps of a neighbor’s house looking visibly shaken up.  He told Officers he along with two friends were smoking Marijuana when two men entered his home through the back door demanding money.  One of the men was armed with a gun.  All three friends ran out the front door leaving the robbers inside.

The victim did not know if the suspects were inside his home and allowed Officers to check the home.  Once inside, Police could still smell a strong odor of Marijuana and they determined the suspects had fled.   In the process, Officers observed a baggie of Marijuana, a grinder along with pills on the kitchen table and the floor.  The drugs and grinder were seized. 

The three men told Officers they did not know the suspects.  The first suspect is described as a tall Black male, 5’10” to 6’ feet tall and 180 to 200 lbs.  He was last seen wearing a gray hoodie.  The second suspect is described as a light-skinned Black male, 5’6” to 5’7” and weighing 140 to 160 lbs.  He was last seen wearing a wool cap and armed with a handgun.
