Officials hoping DNA evidence leads to home invasion suspects

Posted: Updated:
OCILLA, GA (WALB) -

Irwin County Sheriff investigators are hoping DNA results from lab work will help them find two home invasion suspects.

Investigators say on October 17th, two men wearing ski masks, carrying shotguns and FBI badges kicked in the door at 115 Parakeet Lane. They tied up two people, took $1,700 and a 2012 Dodge Challenger.

The stolen car has been recovered and the DNA samples could come back within the month.

Chief investigator Steven Rodgers says residents should be very cautious during this holiday season.

"Just be aware of your surroundings. Try to keep a porch light on at night or something like that," Rodgers said. "That way, if you are coming home late from shopping or whatever you can see when you pull up in your yard or your driveway."

If you have any information about this case, you are asked to call the Irwin County Sheriff's Department at 229-468-7459.
