Elderly residents bound, robbed in New Carrollton home

A man made his way into the New Carrollton home of two elderly people Monday, bound them with duct tape and robbed them of $1,200 in cash, police said Thursday.

The home-invasion robbery occurred about 4 a.m. in the 6100 block of 85th Place, police said. It was not immediately clear how the man got into the home, or how he got away.

Home-invasion robberies often are drug rip-offs, but sometimes innocent victims are targeted.

Last year, police went as far as to recommend that residents vary their routines to prevent becoming targets.

That didn’t stop the crime: Later in the year, a group hit three homes.

New Carrollton police advised residents Thursday to make sure their doors are locked before going to bed and to call 911 if they see any suspicious people in their neighborhoods.

PG County's official website states that it's a "County of Livable Communities."

In PGC "livable" must mean home invasions, car jackings, robberies and shootings. Bwaaahaaaaa

Serously? Have you ever looked at crime statistics?

A young black man has MUCH more to fear from other young black men that he EVER does from white cops.

Approximately 90% of all black murders are committed by...other blacks.

It's people like you who perpetuate this idea of racism. If your self-entitlement and ill-perceived notion of other races didn't exist then the radically racially charged vibe that dominates this region would have long since died. But I guess we just have to wait for you to in order for progress.

When one lives next to trash, rats are sure to come. There are too many thugs and miscreants in that county. In the late 70s and early 80s it used to be a livable and nice bedroom-county. I wonder what changed?

To jabrea100: I grew up in Landover in the 60's. guess what? When the minorities moved in; the crime went up. You're right; it was a nice place to live!!!

PG County is a human wasteland. You couldn't pay me to live there. Used to be great back in the 60s, but then all the ghetto trash started moving in and up the crime went. Now, PGC looks like any ghetto neighborhood in DC. Actually, there are quite a few "bad" areas in DC that I would live in before I moved to PG County!

It's a shame that criminals pick on the elderly. This makes me think that my family should move to the country. With 20 chow chows to guard the property.
