Suspects sought in armed home invasion

N-Kent-County-Sheriff-logoPolice are looking for two men who invaded a woman’s home in Spencer Township Tuesday by pretending to be police officers and then robbed her at gunpoint.

According to Lt. Ron Gates, of the Kent County Sheriff Department, dispatch received the call of a home invasion and armed robbery at 16000 Force, just north of Walander, at 4:40 p.m., on Tuesday, September 13. The two men, who were dressed in all black, reportedly told the woman, who was home alone, that they had a search warrant. She saw something that looked like a badge and thought they were the police. Once inside, they held her at gunpoint and robbed her of an undisclosed amount of cash. They also stole firearms and escaped in a vehicle of unknown description.

A dog from the Wyoming K9 unit was called in but didn’t find anything.

Lt. Gates said that a crime like this one doesn’t occur often in northern Kent County. “We might get a home invasion or an armed robbery at a business, but to have an armed home invasion like this is quite unusual,” he said.

Suspect one was described as a white male in his 20s or 30s, average height (possibly about 5 feet 8), medium weight (possibly 160 pounds), with a short beard. He was wearing a black fedora; buttoned down long sleeve black shirt; black pants; and black gloves.

Suspect two was a dark complexioned white male, about 5 feet 7, 200 pounds, with dark hair. He also was dressed in all black, like the other suspect.

If anyone has any information, please call Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345, or the Kent County Sheriff non-emergency dispatch at 616-632-6357.
