Coweta Police are looking for the suspect in a home invasion and stolen car case.

This is a little unusual case because the victim knew the suspect, so police have the identity, now they say they just need to find him.

It happened Wednesday evening on the south side of Coweta.

Police said a man was watching television about 7 p.m. with an open door when a former roommate and three other people walked in.

"They started getting over the top of him in a threatening position, kind of cornering him, in a corner of the room, bowing up to him, the victim said bowing up to me and saying they wanted the keys to his car and his Harley Davidson motorcycle," said Coweta Police Chief Michael Bell. 

The victim told police the leader of the group was 31-year-old Jamie Haines of Catoosa.

“So, we've put that out there and we're getting a lot of feedback now on Facebook about where he might or might not be,” Bell said. 

The chief said the victim wasn't hurt.

“No, he wasn't hurt, but very very scared, threatening and he thought if he didn't do what they told him to do they would hurt him,” he said.

Coweta Police are still working on getting a warrant and asking anyone with information to call 918-486-2121.

The other people involved have not been identified.
