Cabin John home invasion robbery

By Ruben Castaneda

A 68-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint Monday afternoon by two intruders in his home in the Cabin John area, Montgomery County police said.

The victim was not injured, and the crime is not believed to be random, said Capt. Paul Starks, a police spokesman.

Starks said officers were called to a home in the 7400 block of Arden Road about 1 p.m. Monday for a report of a robbery.

The victim reported that two attackers broke through the back door into his home. One of the assailants brandished a handgun, Starks said.

The intruders asked for duct tape, which the victim provided, Starks said. The attackers tied up the victim with the duct tape, took some of his property and fled, Starks said. He declined to say what was taken.

Sounds like an inside job, he provided duct tape and wont say what was taken.

Read the article again, Frank60. It was the POLICE spokesman who wouldn't say what was taken, not the victim.

That used to be a nice neighborhood but the thugs are gradually taking over.

Why isn't there a description of the suspects? Probably because it is another case of Hispanics preying on the older population in that area. The Washington Post and Montgomery County keep that information out of the story so the sheeple will not know what is going on. But they do know who is committing these crimes. In the case of Ms. Havenstien an illegal alien attacked and killed her. An illegal alien who had been in Montgomery County Police Custody several times. Clearly the county cares more about illegal aliens then the tax paying legal residents of the county. The blood of Ms. Havenstien and the other victims of the illegal alien are on Ike Leggett's and the council's hands. But that does not matter, they are in a delusional pursuit of diversity but in reality they are only importing poverty and crime into the county. Again this is really their plan to justify building a larger government to look over the serfs they rule. Rule not serve remember that.

Harpers Ferry and Loudoun County looking better all the time.

look outs are useful. The below was taken a few minutes ago from the WUSA9.com website:

"...The suspects are described as white men in their late teens with thin builds, about 5'6" to 5'7" tall.

Police say they were wearing all black or dark colored clothing including black knit caps, "baggy" jeans, and brown canvass or cotton gloves.

Detectives do not believe this is a random crime and are asking anyone with information to call them at 240-773-5100 or Crime Solvers of Montgomery County at 1-866-411-TIPS"

The race does not matter - they are savage subhumans who deserve the very worst punishment the imagination can conjure.

yes, the thugs are expanding. everyone should at least keep a shotgun ready to meet and greet the local thuggery.

Hmmm.
I'll bet the thug heard about this neighborhood from Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, or maybe even last Sunday's Washington Post.
We should register newspapers; perhaps not allow readers to have more than 13 pages at a time.
