Town of Southampton Police detectives are still searching for the men they said took part in a frightening home invasion in North Sea last week.
Police said it was just before midnight on Oct. 15 when two men barged into a home on Widener Lane carrying a revolver and a shotgun. The homeowner was in the house at the time of the robbery, according to the police report. Police said the two men grabbed $1,500 in cash from an envelope inside the home as well as the keys to a Ford vehicle, and then fled. The report did not indicate that the vehicle was taken.
Shortly after the men left, the victim called 911 to report the crime. Police canvassed the area with a K-9 unit and air support, but came up empty. Detectives responded to the scene and collected evidence after taking a statement from the homeowner. Calls to detectives for more information were not returned. A call to a phone number listed as the victim’s was not answered.
Detectives are continuing the investigation. Patch will update the story as more information becomes available.
