Fishers Police looking for two suspects in overnight home invasion


Police are still searching for two men after a home invasion and several car break-ins in a Fishers neighborhood.

The call came in shortly after 2:30 a.m. Wednesday. That's when police told Eyewitness News two armed men broke into a home on Adam Court in Fishers, approached the victim while he was sleeping and placed a gun to his head.

Officers set up a perimeter and dispatched a K-9, but came up empty. More than six hours later, police updated the story - starting with the gun.

"Initially, we did get some indication that there may have been a weapon. After further investigation, we have determined that there was no gun involved," said Fishers Police Sgt. Tom Weger.

So police no longer believe the suspects to be armed and dangerous. In fact, the homeowner described them as polite and well-spoken.

Weger says the suspects also didn't force their way into the house, because they didn't have to. The homeowners left their garage door up and vehicles unlocked, right along with the door to their home.

"We just have to make sure that we are double checking and make sure our doors are locked, because it does create an easy access for someone to gain entry into the home. This could be a very dangerous situation and it can be easily avoided," said Weger.

But this home wasn't the only target. Police believe the suspects broke into several cars in the neighborhood including Brian Thomas' vehicle.

"I did notice there was a Kindle missing, a couple DVDs, some Christmas presents I hadn't brought in yet," said Thomas.

Brian says he can't remember if he locked his car doors, but he says there will be no doubt in the future.

"It's just those days where you make sure you lock your car, lock your house, make sure everything is locked up tight no matter where you're at," said Thomas.

The stories of the victims reinforce crime can strike anywhere.
