Police Still Investigating Trigg Co. Home Invasion
By West Kentucky Star Staff
TRIGG COUNTY - Kentucky State Police are still investigating a weekend home invasion robbery in Trigg County.

Police say they have been working with other local law enforcement agencies on the case since they were called to Compton Road early Saturday morning. 

The victims said two black males knocked on the door, saying they were from the Sheriff's Department and wearing what appeared to be law enforcement equipment. Once the door was opened, the two men reportedly rushed into the home, accompanied by two more black males. They detained everyone inside, stole several items and left together in a vehicle. 

Trooper Jay Thomas told WKDZ investigators are looking at video surveillance from the area, trying to identify the type of vehicle used, and following up on other leads. 

He said the fact that two people were dressed like law enforcement has caused some local concern. He says if anyone feels uncomfortable about the situation, they should call the agency and ask if an officer has been dispatched to the home. 

Thomas said, "In your dialogue with that officer through the door, ask why they're there, ask questions about them to try to make the homeowner feel a little bit more comfortable that truly is a police officer. The police officer should be able to state their business why they're there, and it shouldn't be just a random thing with the homeowners."

State Police urge anyone who has any information about the case, no matter how small, to call Detective David Dick at 270-856-3721 or anonymously at 1-800-222-5555.
