January 25, 2018: SHERIFF'S SPECIAL NEWS RELEASE
At approximately 5:45 PM on Thursday, 1/25/17, Deputies responded to an armed home invasion in the 5400 block of County Hwy. DR. The female occupant stated she was alone in the residence when a male subject entered an unlocked door and brandished a handgun, announcing it was a robbery. He questioned the victim on the whereabouts of valuables, then proceeded to ransack the bedroom. An undetermined inventory of jewelry and cash was taken. The victim was left unharmed as the suspect fled from the residence on foot.
Subsequently, the area was searched by the Green County Sheriff’s Office Canine Unit, assisted by Monroe Police Department Officers. The track led to an area where the suspect was believed to have left in a vehicle. The suspect was described as a white male in his mid-thirties, approximately 5’6” in height, with light facial (unshaven) hair. His clothing was described as a gray sweatshirt, brown cloth gloves, and a brown stocking cap.
The suspect’s whereabouts remain unknown; however, there are potential leads that will be pursued. Further details are being withheld as this is an active investigation.
