ORIGINAL STORY Following an interview with a male who arrived, in handcuffs, at the Leduc RCMP detachment yesterday, the Leduc RCMP, with the assistance of the Leduc General Investigation Section, are investigating a home invasion.

At approximately 2:00 a.m., on February 28, a home was broken into in Leduc County by four males and one female. Initially, they knocked on the door and announced themselves as the police, and then they kicked in a door and handcuffed the homeowner. The suspects were brandishing firearms and demanded that the victim open his safe.

The homeowner was robbed of five firearms as well some other items. The three rifles and two shotguns were properly stored in the homeowner’s safe. The stolen items were loaded into the victim’s vehicle which was subsequently stolen. All suspects then left the property.

The victim was able to release himself from one of the handcuffs and then enlisted a neighbour to assist him and bring him to the Leduc RCMP Detachment. He was not injured, and was the sole occupant of the residence.

Preliminary investigation leads the RCMP to believe that the suspects were aware of certain property within this home, and targeted the home. The RCMP do not feel that this was a random home invasion.
