You know that home invasion trick where you realize that the cops are on their way so you convince one of your victims to tie you up and say that you’re a victim too? Yeah, that works about as well as everyone smarter than you would expect.
As police and SWAT units arrived, one suspect was seen fleeing the scene, and was immediately apprehended by officers.
Two other suspects remained in the house, while the fourth ran and hid, Eisenman said.
The two men inside then allegedly told the resident to identify them to police as victims too, and convinced the resident to tie them up in the home, according to police.
The resident obliged, and fled the home, telling the police what had happened while the two suspects remained tied up inside.
Police did not immediately enter the residence, Eisenman said. After some time the suspects “got tired of waiting” and emerged.
They were arrested shortly thereafter, and the fourth suspect was found hiding in the backyard by a canine unit.
