Suspects in Holly Springs Home Invasion and Chase Arrested

At about 2 a.m., the suspects, who were armed, broke into a home in the 200 block of Amylou Circle, Holly Springs Police Lt. Tanya Anderson said. Inside the home were the homeowners, their brother-in-law, their son and his girlfriend.

Three suspects who allegedly broke into a Amylou Circle home, forced the family in the home to get on the floor, and eventually led local authorities on a brief chase, have been arrested.

At about 2 a.m., three people broke into a home in the 200 block of Amylou Circle, Lt. Tanya Anderson said.

Inside the home were the homeowners, their brother-in-law, their son and his girlfriend.

The suspects, who were armed, robbed the homeowners and fled the scene as Holly Springs Police arrived, Anderson said.

One suspect fled the scene in a van. After a brief chase that ended when the suspect wrecked the van at Towne Lake Parkway in Woodstock, police arrested 21-year-old Andra Westmoreland.

The two remaining suspects, 31-year-old Sharece McCowan and 20-year-old Damon Johnson, were arrested after Holly Springs Police Sgt. Casey Barton noticed a woman "driving around the neighborhood while talking on a cellular phone," Anderson said.

Barton followed the woman, who Anderson said "was in the neighborhood to pick up the suspects."

Home Invasions are dramatically on the rise. In fact, the FBI says that a home is invaded every 12 seconds by someone going right through the front or back door. 85% of home intruders enter through a door. Enhancing the door security on your home is one of the most essential components of home security. You must reinforce all of your exterior entry doors. Most often, it's the door jamb that breaks. Door jamb reinforcement is the most effective, least expensive thing you can do to protect your home. You can easily reinforce your doors with a product like the Door Security Pro - http://www.DoorSecurityPro.com . It's inexpensive, easy to install, and it provides a lifetime of protection.
