HBPD seeks suspects in home invasion

The Holmes Beach Police Department is searching for two women suspected of breaking into a home earlier today restraining the occupant and stealing jewelry, cash and a car.

A news release from HBPD described the suspects as female — one shorter, with possible facial piercings on the lower lip, and one taller with longer hair. Both, at the time of the incident, wore knit hats. One wore green, cut-off, cargo pants.

The home invasion was reported at 10:42 a.m. Jan. 25,when HBPD received an emergency call from a person in the 4900 block of Second Avenue.

Police said two women knocked on the door of a home and, when an occupant answered, they pushed open the door and bound and covered the head of the victim.

The suspects took jewelry and cash, as well as a blue 2007 Hyundai Tucson SUV with tag no. G157YB.

HBPD reported that the victim freed herself after the suspects left the home and ran out to a construction crew in the area, asking for help.

Anyone with information on the incident or the suspects can call Crime Stoppers at 866-634-8477 or Holmes Beach Police Department Det. Mike Leonard at 708-5804, ext. 243.
