Cops: Two Held Up By Masked Gunmen in Broad Daylight

The masked suspects stole two bags of cash, police said.

A man and woman were held up by two masked gunmen in broad daylight in Riverhead Wednesday, police said.

According to Riverhead Town police, a 911 call came in at 3:27 p.m.; the caller hung up without saying anything.

The enhanced 911 system identified the location of the call as a home on Maplewood Lane, police said.

Police responded to the residence and found a Riverhead man, 40, and a Bay Shore woman, 38, who said that they had just been robbed at gunpoint.

The two said that they had been walking to a car in the driveway when two masked men came up behind them and displayed a handgun, ordering them back into the home, police said.

Once inside the house, the suspects stole a bag containing cash from a bedroom closet, police said. The suspects then left the house and stole a bag containing cash from a vehicle in the driveway, police said.

A Riverhead Police Department K-9 unit searched the premises for the suspects, with no results.

Both the man and woman were "uncooperative" and said they did not wish to pursue the matter, police said.

Ahh, those wonderful illegals. And the police don't find this unusual. Round em up and interrogate them. I will bet they know each other and it was a drug debt. Carry on Riverhead Town Policia

if it was drug money or money fell from the sky it still does not justify being threatened at gunpoint. Not cooperating with the police does make it suspicious but remember the gunmen know where they live, i think that would be enough to scare anyone.
