Police Investigate Three Home Invasion Robberies

Three home invasions in two days have resulted in three arrests, eight suspects on the run and five victims. The most recent was around 1:30 a.m. Thursday in West Lubbock. A woman was home alone when a man kicked in her front door. Armed with a shotgun, he made her get on the floor while he stole jewelry. The woman told police she thought the man was a former neighbor. Meanwhile, current neighbors say they are scared.

Wednesday morning, just before 2 a.m., five suspects claiming to be ATF agents broke into a home in Northwest Lubbock. Armed with guns, the suspects tied and beat up the two homeowners before stealing money. One arrest has been made in that case.

A few hours later, 522 52nd Street was robbed. Five men kicked in the door and knocked out windows and opened fire to get in. The female victim hid in a closet while one of the suspects hit the male victim in the head with a gun. The suspects stole money and jewelry. The victims identified brothers, Nick and Richard Casias as two of the suspects. Police arrested and charged both men.

Detectives say it does not appear these home invasions are connected. If you have any information that could help, call Crime Line at (806) 741-1000.
