Police seek men driving a semi after home invasion

Police are seeking help locating two men driving a red Peterbilt pulling a white van trailer after an armed home invasion in Thurman, IA, on Dec. 21.

According to The Daily Nonpareil, deputies with the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office were dispatched to a home in Thurman, shortly before 9 p.m. after a report of an armed robbery. Police said that two black men broke into the residence, displayed a semi-automatic handgun and tied up the victims. A number of items were taken from the home and the men left the area on foot.

Authorities were able to track the men back to Interstate 29 where they fled in the semi rig.

One of the suspects was described as wearing a dark coat, dark pants and carrying the handgun.

He is believed to have been called Pete. The second suspect was wearing a tan coat with a fur-lined collar and blue jeans.

Police are warning the public to not approach the suspects that are considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on the vehicle or the suspects is asked to contact the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office at (712) 374-2424 or 911.
