Police: 2 People Tied Up By Robbers In Catoosa House
CATOOSA, Oklahoma - Catoosa Police say they are looking for three men with guns driving a stolen black Honda Accord.
Catoosa Police say it began when the two victims arrived at the house to meet up with the homeowners who reportedly were not home. However, when they arrived they saw the suspects already inside the home.
"They observed a broken window and three black males inside, the black males noticed them and chased the male subject back outside," said Officer Brent Colbert.
Police say they believe those three men were trying to rob the home and then brought the couple back inside the home.
"They took both victims inside and tied them up. Once they tied them up they were in there for a couple of hours, they ransacked the residence," said Officer Colbert.
According to Police the men then left in a 2003 Black Honda Accord with the license plate HYE329. They do not know what the men left with. Once the victims untied themselves, they called Police who arrived and saw drugs including several marijuana plants.
Police say they believe this was not a random act and that there was drug activity at the house. They say about three to four months ago people tried to kick in the back door but do not know if the incidents are connected. In the meantime, Police are asking the public to be on the lookout.
"I think it’s an elevated concern because they've done it at once residence they got weapons they'll do it to another residence," said Officer Colbert.
Police say those three men were wearing bandanas or scarfs and may be in East Tulsa, Catoosa or Rogers County. If you see anything or have any information call police.
