The Johnson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in the investigation into an armed robbery of a family of three over the weekend.
According to a statement from Johnson County Sheriff Doug Saylor, in the early morning hours of Sept. 6, deputies were dispatched to a residence in the Oil Springs area of Johnson County regarding an armed robbery.
Upon investigation, the statement said, it was found that, at approximately 4 a.m., a male subject forced entry into a residence occupied by a family of three. According to witness statements, the perpetrator was dressed in black, was wearing a black mask and was armed with an AR-style weapon.
The statement said that, when the perpetrator was confronted by one of the residents, he identified himself as, and was dressed to resemble, a law enforcement officer.
“The homeowners were detained in a small room within the residence by the perpetrator and, after a period of time, exited the room to find the subject had left the residence,” the statement said. “Multiple items had allegedly been stolen including, but not limited to, jewelry and two handguns.”
The victims described the subject as a bald male in his mid 30s, 5 feet, 11 inches in height and weighing approximately 230 pounds. The suspect, the statement said, was wearing black boots, black tactical pants, a black, long-sleeved tactical shirt and a black duty belt.
The subject remains at large and Sheriff Saylor has urged that anyone with information regarding this incident to contact the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office at, (606) 789-3411.
