Fourth Arrest in Home Invasion Gang Case

A gang of home invaders is now wanted in 23 cities across the country for terrorizing elderly women, including one in Garden City and two in Savannah.

The latest attack happened in Garden City last week. Sadie Smith, 76, was beaten and robbed in her home on Chatham Villa Drive.

Police arrested Lisa Johnson and Walter Miller for that crime. Stanley Miller is also in jail on home invasion charges--he'll be extradited to Florida.

Peter Miller was just arrested by US marshals in Miami. Peter's wife Lisa Alvarez is still on the run.

Police say all the suspects are Romanian gypsies that move from city to city, stealing from elderly women.
