Concerned citizen puts up money to find suspects in home invasion

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A concerned citizen has put up an additional $500 in a reward to find information in a home invasion that happened earlier this year at a house in Georgetown County.

Officials with Crime Stoppers of the Lowcountry announced on Wednesday that a citizen donated an additional $500 to the reward for information leading to the arrests of the suspects.

On Jan. 27, authorities say three men, who were posing as police officers, broke into a home on 22288 Choppee Road in the Hemingway area.

According to investigators, during the incident, the suspects demanded money and guns, and took money and other property. Two of the residents were assaulted, and one had to be airlifted to a hospital.

Authorities say the suspects wore black hoodies, black skullies, and had the word "Security" written on some of their clothing. The suspects' vehicle was possibly a tan GMC Envoy which was last seen heading towards Georgetown.

If you have any information you are asked to call Crime Stoppers at (843) 554-1111 or 1-888-CRIMESC. Tips that lead to the arrests of the suspects are eligible for cash rewards of up to $1,000.
