MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Myrtle Beach Police are searching for the man they say broke into a home stealing cash and pills the morning after Christmas.

The two men who live in the home on Ragin Street report that the male suspect forced his way into the home through the front door around 4 a.m.

One of the men was asleep on the couch before the masked suspect burst in. In the incident report he claims the suspect placed a gun to his head, ordering him not to move or "he would shoot everyone in the house."

The second man in the house was in a bedroom when the suspect walked in and held a gun to his head, demanding cash and drugs.

Both males in the home claim they recognized the suspect's voice as a cousin of a woman who also lived in the home, but was asleep in her own room when the alleged robbery occurred. The report states the suspect was in their home on Christmas Day wishing them a Merry Christmas.

The suspect made off with $100 in cash and a handful of pills valued near $100.
