Victims Sleep Through Home Invasion

JoCo-Sheriff-Office-InsideA Smithfield family said they were the victims of a home invasion.

Two men and a woman were inside a home in the 1400 block of Highway 210 near Smithfield when the incident is believed to have occurred between 9:30 PM Sunday and 4:00 AM Monday.

While the victims were asleep, someone entered the home and removed numerous items off the kitchen table. Among the items taken were cash, a credit card, ID card, wallet, lunch box, and a brown and pink bag.  The total value of the items was $485. The victims told authorities they left a window open in the kitchen before going to bed, which could have been how the intruder entered the residence.

Two vehicles parked at the address were also believed to have been entered.  Authorities said the victims waited until Monday night to report the incident.

The Johnston County Sheriff’s Office is investigating.
