Officials Investigate Home Invasion in Frederick County

The Frederick County Bureau of Investigation is looking into a home invasion, where a man was held captive for an hour while three men ransacked his home.
MONROVIA, Md. - The Frederick County Bureau of Investigation is looking into a home invasion, where a man was held captive for an hour while three men ransacked his home. 

It happened around 3 p.m. Tuesday, October 22, in the 12,600 block of Fingerboard Road. However, the robbery was not reported to the Sheriff's Office until October 25. 

The 89-year-old male homeowner reported to police a dark blue or green pickup truck pulled into his driveway and a man got out, asking about a roofing job. Shortly after, two more men got out of the truck and together the three men forced the elderly homeowner into his house where he was held captive for an hour. The three men ransacked the house and removed the phone from the wall so he could not call for help. 

The homeowner was not hurt in the robbery. He reported more than $2,000 worth of valuables including a shotgun, jewelry and telephone were taken from the house. 

Deputies say during a canvass of the neighborhood, another homeowner on Fingerboard Road reported around the same time frame she was approached by two young men driving a dark colored pickup truck asking to work on her roof. She said she walked into her house and locked the door. The men left without incident. 

Officials are asking folks to immediately report any suspicious activity that they may see in their area. Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Cpl. Dave DeWees at (301)-600-3677.
