OCSO SEARCHES FOR TWO IN HOME INVASION ROBBERY

     The Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office is searching for two men in connection with a home invasion armed robbery Saturday evening, January 26th. A resident at 510 Union Street says two black males carrying guns and wearing black ski masks entered her home around 6:30 p.m. after knocking on the door.

      She says the pair took some money and other items. One robber hit her with the butt of a gun. The woman also says one shot was fired inside the home but no one was hit.

      The Sheriff’s Office quickly set up a perimeter in the area and brought in a K-9 unit, but attempts to track the robbers were not successful.

       Anyone with information on this home invasion robbery is asked to contact the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office at 850-651-7400 or Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 850-863-TIPS.
