The men, armed with a pistol and a shotgun, forced their way into Rose and Darrell Jones' trailer. They took her purse, a cell phone and their daughter, Tammy, and the Cadillac Escalade Tammy was driving.
The truck was recovered near US 19 and the 22-year-old woman dumped out unharmed outside a Carlisle garage.
Her parents had freed themselves from duct tape bonds and called 911. Cutting free of the emotional impact is harder. " Friend Jessica Oatridge said they were scared. "It was very terrifying. it was traumatic. They're doing the best they can. "
The daughter --left wearing a blanket and duct tape--was able to get a ride from a passerby to this gas station several miles away. They called for help.
Sheriff's Captain Jim Sizemore said: " The preliminary investigation indicates this residence was specifically targeted by the suspects. This was not a random occurrence. "
Although they do not expect any other home invasions, deputies warn these men are very dangerous. They are described as two black males, 6 feet and six feet two inches tall, wearing dark clothing. They were driving a maroon or burgundy Chevrolet Impala.
