Suspects sought in home invasion
By SUE WATSON
Marshall County Sheriff’s Department investigators are seeking information leading to the identity of three black male subjects involved in a home invasion, according to Maj. Kelly McMillen.
Officers were dispatched to a home in the 4000 block of Higdon Road Monday around 12:40 a.m. When they arrived on the scene, officers learned from the homeowner that three individuals had kicked in the front door of the house to gain entry, he said.
“Once inside, the suspects used black duct tape located in the residence to tie everybody up,” McMillen said. “After everyone was tied up, the suspects assaulted the adult male in the residence with a small caliber handgun. They also removed items from inside the home – flat-screen televisions, jewelry, X-Boxes and games and an undetermined amount of cash.”
The suspects then took the adult female to a location inside the residence where they raped her multiple times, he said.
Suspects left the house in two cars belonging to the residents – a 2007 four-door, dark blue BMW and a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta, grey in color.
The Jetta was spotted later by a neighbor on Hubbard Road, in close proximity to the home invasion, and reported as an abandoned vehicle on the person’s property, McMillen said.
Olive Branch police officers spotted the BMW in the Goodman Road area and pursued it to the Hickory Hill area of Memphis, Tenn., where they lost sight of the vehicle.
Later Memphis, Tenn., police found the BMW in the Bishop Avenue area in close proximity to where the pursuit by Olive Branch officers was terminated, he said.
Both vehicles were towed to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department where forensic evidence is being collected, McMillen said.
Anyone who has any information that could lead to the identification of these suspects involved in the home invasion are asked to call the sheriff’s office at 662-252-1311 where they can speak confidentially with investigators on this case.
Or, callers may leave a tip with Marshall County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-729-6169 where they can remain anonymous.
Anyone who has information related to this or any other crime is asked to call authorities at one of the numbers above and report tips.
