The Manatee County Sheriff's Office is reporting an armed home invasion today in the 4300 block of Drake Boulevard.
According to deputies, two suspects – both brandishing 9mm handguns – forced their way into a home, after asking the child answering the door if the mother was at home. A third suspect stayed in a black vehicle that had backed up in the driveway.
The suspects went immediately to a back bedroom and confronted an adult man resting. The suspects demanded to know the location of a safe and marijuana. They then ransacked the bedroom looking for both but came up empty-handed. They then fled the house, driving off toward Lockwood Ridge Road.
No one was injured during the incident.
