The King County Sheriff’s Office needs the public’s help in identifying three suspects who forced their way into a family’s home demanding methamphetamine and money.
The incident occurred March 4 in the 15100 block SE 141st Pl., Renton around 9:10 p.m. when a husband, wife and their two older teenage sons were home.
According to the King County Sheriff’s Office, a white male, black male and another male of an unknown race forced their way into the home.
The wife, who is undergoing cancer treatment, reportedly told them they didn’t have meth but offered them her cancer medications, which according to the Sheriff’s Office the suspects took.
The husband was pistol whipped and the sons were forced to the floor at gunpoint.
The three suspects reportedly took hundreds of dollars in cash and three cell phones. Two of the three phones were located during the initial response, a Sheriff’s Office release stated.
