Officials investigating home invasion on Pryor Rd. in Screven County


Investigators in Screven County are searching for answers after a home invasion.

Three men forced their way in, demanding money.

This latest home invasion marks the third since late April and investigators believe, that's three too many. They don't think the same people did all three.

The latest happened Monday morning on Pryor Road. Three men convinced the homeowner to open the door and trouble started there.

As investigators look for leads, they have ways you can protect yourself. First, keep doors and windows locked. Even if you see somebody approaching your house, there's no guarantee you could lock up before they could force their way inside.

Second, ask for ID. If they claim to be with a utility company or something else, ask for some identification to prove it.

Third, if they ask to use your phone to call a tow truck or something, make the call yourself. Don't open the door to give them the phone.

Investigators hope they can catch the people responsible as soon as possible.
