Robbers steal $8,000 .357 Magnum in Girard

Published: Fri, August 24, 2012 @ 2:15 a.m.


Police are searching for two men who escaped with about $8,000 in cash after a home-invasion robbery at a house trailer on Hillcrest Avenue.

The two entered through an unlocked screen door shortly after midnight Thursday. One man held the homeowner and four friends at gunpoint, while the other went into another room and grabbed a small safe. “They were owed money, and they were there to get it,” one of the robbers said, according to police. “We have the safe, we don’t need a key, let’s get out of here,” one robber said to the other.

Police said the witnesses didn’t know the robbers, only one of whom was masked, and they didn’t see a getaway vehicle. The 79-year-old resident said the safe contained about $8,000 in cash, along with a .357 Magnum.

Much more, but it's Girard they'll get away with it. You can get away with murder there.
