RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) -

The Richland County Sheriff's Department is investigating a home invasion and possible kidnapping, sheriff's department spokesman Sgt. Curtis Wilson said.

Wilson said three men armed with a handgun forced entry into a home and tied up the homeowner in the 300 block of Elders Pond Circle around 9 p.m.

Wilson said they stole a few items and took a woman with them.

It's not clear whether the woman went with them willingly or not. 

Deputies say they believe the incident was drug related.

The homeowner was not injured.

Investigators say they're looking for three black males. A better description of the suspects has not been released.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
