SPRINGFIELD, GA (WTOC) -

Deputies are trying to track down a couple of gunmen after an armed robbery overnight in Effingham County.

It happened around 3 a.m. Thursday at a home along Mockingbird Drive in Springfield. Investigators say the two gunmen took an undisclosed amount of cash.

Officials say they believe the victim and the suspects new each other, and that others may have been involved in the crime.

"We do believe that this was an isolated incident, targeting this specific house. They knew what they wanted, they wanted the cash," said ECSO spokesman David Ehsanipoor.

So far, no arrests have been made. If you know anything about the robbery, contact the Effingham County Sheriff's Office.
