GRIFTON, N.C. - The Greene County Sheriff's Office is investigating an home invasion.

Sheriff Lemmie Smith says it happened just before 8 a.m. on Saturday on Edwards Bridge Road in Grifton.

Smith says five men, armed with guns, busted through the front door of a home. The suspects then demanded money from a woman living there. When the woman said she didn't have any money, the suspects got in a van and tried to get away. Smith says while the intruders were attempting to drive away they backed into a ditch and damaged the van.  The men then took off running in several directions.

Deputies arrested four of the five men within a couple of hours. Two of the suspects were picked up near Pitt County, two more suspects were found hiding behind an abandoned house just up the road. Deputies are still searching the fifth suspect.

Four men  arrested in connection with the home invasion are 21-year-old Raeshon Trevel Hardy, 29-year old Kelvin Earl Little, 28-year-old Terrance Leon Best, and 28-year-old Rondell Staquan Edwards. All four men have been charged  with felony breaking and entering, robbery with a dangerous weapon, and assault by pointing a gun. They are being held in the Greene County Jail under a $100,000 bond.

No one was injured during the attempted robbery.
