Home invasion/robbery reported in Fremont County


December 22nd, 2012 by Ric Hanson

Authorities in Fremont County are investigating a home invasion and robbery that occurred Friday night, in Thurman. The Sheriff’s Department says deputies were dispatched to 1423 Western Avenue in Thurman just before 9-p.m., Friday.  During their investigation, deputies determined two black males had broken into the residence and displayed a semi-automatic pistol. The occupants of the home were tied-up and numerous items were taken before the suspects took-off on foot.

One of the black male robbers wore a dark coat, dark pants and was called “Pete.” He reportedly carried a semi-automatic pistol. The second suspect, also a black male, wore a tan coat with a fur-lined collar and blue jeans. The vehicle they drove off in — a red Peterbilt semi pulling a white trailer — was caught on a surveillance camera.

If you have any information about the location of the semi or the suspects, call the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office at 712-374-2424 or call 9-1-1. Do not attempt to approach the suspects, as they are considered to be armed and dangerous.
