Home invasion and armed robbery

In Blacksburg this weekend.

Blacksburg police are seeking information on what’s being investigated as an armed robbery involving three “college-age” men.

The incident happened Sunday night, according to a police news release.

Officers responded to the Orchard Lane area at 6:25 p.m. after a report of an armed robbery and home invasion. It was reported that three men entered the victim’s home brandishing a weapon, took some items and fled, according to the release.

There’s not a lot of information in the story I ran across this morning, and I’m too busy at the moment to dig further for more. But I’ll take this short break to remind Hokies (and everyone else, really) to stay alert, lock your doors and be careful when answering them, and above all, CARRY YOUR GUNS! Even at home, have it either on you or easily and readily accessible. They only wanted property… this time. Their next intended victims might not be so fortunate.
