Synopsis:
The Central Berks Regional Police Department is investigating a home invasion style robbery that happened on Friday, March 27th 2015 at about 3:30 am. This robbery happened at 3614 Jacksonwald Avenue, floor 1, within St. Lawrence Borough. 
 
Investigating officers learned that three male actors entered the victim’s residence through the unlocked front door. Each actor is depicted in the first three attached photographs that were obtained from video surveillance inside the home. Actor #1 enters carrying a knife, Actor #2 enters carrying a gun, Actor #3 enters carrying nothing but he can be seen wearing gloves. All three actors were wearing masks with hooded sweatshirts and the victim could not describe any of them better except for one male was definitely African-American. The victim was sleeping at the time and awoke to the actors surrounding him and pointing a gun at his head. The victim was then held down and the actors continued to ask the victim “where’s the drugs and money?” The victim told the suspects that he was not involved in drugs  but did tell the suspects where he secured his small amount of cash.
 
The suspects then took the following items from the victim’s home: a Vizio flat screen television, a Playstation 4, Dre Beats headphones, and an iPhone 5 cell phone. 
 
The last two photographs show the actors leaving carrying the victim’s property. The victim’s dog did bite one of the suspects causing a significant wound.
