Amanda Greybe, spokesperson for the Springs Police, says the suspects then took the complainant’s wife to open the door.

“After taking the complainant into his bedroom, the suspects took his car keys, two TV sets, DVD and video machines, house keys, his wedding ring along with his wife’s wedding ring and a silver ring,” she says.

The suspects allegedly struggled to start the car and they fetched the complainant to start it for them.
