ESCO investigating home invasion

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a home invasion and burglary that took place last week.

ESCO received a 911 call Friday, December 2, at approximately 11:26 p.m., in reference to a home invasion / burglary at 397 Moye Drive, Atmore. Moye Drive comes off Sardis Church Road, east of Cowpen Creek Road, near Canoe.

The caller stated that three subjects forced their way inside the residence and threatened bodily harm to him. The suspects took money and firearms from the residence and left on foot. Deputies responded to the area and made contact with victim.

A short distance from the residence, deputies discovered the point at which a vehicle had left at a high rate of speed which appeared to be evidence that was related to the crime.

Two subjects were found walking near Highway 31 and were detained for questioning. Neither subject fit the suspect’s description, but one subject was arrested for public intoxication.

The case is still open and under investigation. Anyone with any information regarding the crime, please contact the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office at (215) 809-2154 or visit the website at escambiacountysheriffal.org.
