HUNTINGDON VALLEY, PA — The Lower Moreland Township Police Department announced it is investigating a home invasion and gunpoint robbery that occurred last month.
Authorities stated that on Thursday, February 9, 2023, at approximately 11:47 hours, officers responded to a residence near Huntingdon Pike and Byberry Road for a reported home invasion robbery. A female resident was home alone when she received a knock on the door. When she looked outside, she observed the attached vehicle parked across the street and three males on her doorstep with a dolly loaded with three cardboard boxes that depicted “Amazon” on them.
When she opened the door the males told her they’d bring the boxes in and when they did, one of the males slipped to her side, put a gun to her left temple, and told her not to move. The youngest of the three males watched over her while the other two ransacked the home. The males looted the home for approximately 15 minutes before fleeing in the vehicle. They were last seen heading west on the residential road, towards Huntingdon Pike.
The offenders were described as three Latino males. One was estimated as 18-20 years old. The other two were estimated as between 20-25 years old. One was heavy set and the other two were thin. All three were between 5’6-5’10. There was also a fourth male offender who was the driver of the vehicle. The house had no video surveillance.
The released image of a male is of one of the unidentified suspects. The male has a significant scar on the right side of his face and missing teeth.
