CBS 8 and ABC Montgomery are taking action against crime. Montgomery Police are looking for three people involved in a home invasion in East Montgomery on Bell Road. Tonight, the victims are talking to us about what happened.
Watson and Suzanne Spurlin were tied up and held against their will for about an hour after three robbers forced themselves inside of their home in the middle of the night. Now, police are on the search for people who broke into their home.
It all started when Watson Spurlin took his dog, Tessa, out for her regular walk in the back yard just after midnight Wednesday, when he says three robbers hopped behind their neighbor's wired fence in the Henley Hedge neighborhood.
"Had the gun and the other one had a pry bar in his hand and this guy, I said 'hey man we don't have to do this,'" Said Watson Spurlin.
The couple says the group ransacked parts of their house, stealing items like a television, guns, jewelry, .even a pick-up truck.
But the robbers have not been arrested. We saw police going door-to-door, speaking with neighbors.
Jim Adams lives across the street from the Spurlins... and until the robbers are caught., they say they're worried about their safety.
Police say they do not have a description of the three robbers, but if you do have any information, youre asked to call Crimestoppers at 215- STOP
