High-end purses stolen in Tacoma home invasion
Oct 25, 2022, 3:16 PM
Tacoma Police are looking for three suspects in a home invasion robbery of high-end purses worth thousands of dollars.
Police said the robbery happened Tuesday morning at 1:45 a.m. at a home near S 65th Street and Pacific Avenue.
“The three suspects broke down the door and brandished a rifle,” Wendy Haddow with the Tacoma Police Department said. “They held the victim at gunpoint while they removed the purses from her home.”
The robbers stole $10,000 in high-end purses and took off in a vehicle. The victim called 911, and officers responded to the scene.
The victim was not hurt.
“The suspects were all wearing masks,” Haddow said. “However, she does not believe she knows any of them.”
Police believe the crooks might have had knowledge of the purses in the home.
