Sketch released in White Co. home invasion case

By Katie Crumley
CLEVELAND - The White County Sheriff's Office has released a composite sketch of one of the three suspects involved in a home invasion off Highway 356 earlier this week.

"The sketch is one of three individuals that forced their way into a residence in the north end of our county and took some prescription drugs from the owners of the home, a husband and a wife," said Chief Deputy Bob Ingram.

Ingram said the suspect is described as a white male in his mid to late 20s, approximately 5 foot 8 to 5 foot 10, 180 to 200 pounds with a stocky build, brown hair and dark eyes.

Authorities said three men, two in bandanas and one armed with a shotgun, forced their way into the Shadow Drive home and stole some prescription drugs.

No one was injured.
