Pelham couple held at gunpoint in home invasion

By Damien Fisher - Staff Writer | Nov 17, 2017

PELHAM – Two men allegedly held a West Street couple at gunpoint Wednesday night in what police are saying is a drug-related home invasion.

Police were called to the apartment by a couple about 10:15 p.m. Wednesday for the reported home invasion. The couple told officers that two Hispanic men broke into the home and robbed them at gunpoint.

No one was hurt during the robbery, and the suspects fled before police arrived.

Officers at the scene say the woman in the couple was very upset and told officers that she had been watching television with the man in the basement when two Hispanic males kicked the front door open and held a gun to their head.

The preliminary investigation shows that the victims were directly targeted and that this incident is possibly drug and cash related, police said.

There was no one else home at the time of the incident.

Police do not believe the public is in any danger, and that this was a targeted incident.

The Hillsborough County Street Crimes Task Force is actively assisting with the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Pelham Police Department Criminal Bureau.
