Indiana State Police continue investigation of Henry County home invasion
STRAUGHN, Ind. – Police are thanking the public for helping identify a man and a woman who may have information about a frightening home invasion in Henry County.
The incident happened in the early morning hours of Nov. 4. A man came through the front door of a home on U.S. 40 between the Henry County line and the town of Straughn.
The man was armed; he confronted the homeowner and bound the homeowner and his wife with zip ties and duct tape. He forced them to open a safe, taking guns and cash, before leaving. The man remained calm during the entire encounter, police said, and never appeared nervous.
“I would be very shocked if this was the first time he’s ever done it,” Sgt. Mark Reece with the Henry County Sheriff’s Department told FOX59.
Indiana State Police (ISP) wanted to talk to two people who may have information about the case. They released photos of both individuals on Thursday.
ISP said investigators received a number of tips and have identified the man and woman in the photographs after an initial release Thursday morning.
The incident is still under investigation.
