PROSPERITY — Deputies are investigating an alleged home invasion on Fire Tower Road near Clara Brown Road in Prosperity. A home owner stated three black armed suspects with a weapon entered the home, demanding cash. The suspects’ faces were covered with bandannas and they were wearing camouflage jackets.
Newberry County Sheriff’s Office bloodhounds were called to the scene and followed a track through the woods and back out on the road where the trail went cold. Investigating deputies believe the suspects left the area due to no further trails being present.
Anyone having information should call the sheriffs office at 321-2222 or Crimestoppers.
