Six suspected home invaders tied to at least 16 different crimes in Northwest Valley (KSNV)

Ruthless...vicious...cold hearted...it is the words Metro Police used to describe a home invasion group tied to more than a dozen crimes. Police say these men and women terrorized unsuspecting victims.

Police say the crime spree started Jan. 15. Investigators tell us the suspects committed street-level robberies, carjackings, and home invasions. It is believed these suspected thieves were apart of at least sixteen different crimes. One of the most vicious home invasions according to police was the robbery of a 74-year-old man at his house.

Captain Sasha Larkin with Metro Police said, "He was simply opening his garage door to go to his mailbox when suspects approached him and put a gun in his face and tied him up."

Officers received a break in the case after a man was carjacked outside a southwest Best Buy near the 215 and Rainbow. Officers tell us the suspects were caught after trying to get away from the police. Patrol cars were rammed into.

Captain Sasha Larkin said, "This crew was ruthless. They were violent, they put guns in people's faces. They followed helpless victims from convenience stores and robbed them of their cars."

Police say a total of six cars were stolen. Five of those cars have been recovered. Investigators did find a tie with all these suspects.

Captain Larkin said, "We strongly believe it has a drug nexus to it these subjects are possibly related and driven by drugs."
