Thursday, July 17, 2014

COLUMBIA COUNTY, Ga. (WRDW) -- Columbia County deputies are looking for two men who tied up a married couple at their home and stole thousands of dollars in cash.

The victims told investigators that they were asleep when the men forced open the front door of their White Oak Campground Rd. home. They said the suspects taped their hands behind their back and their feet together, before demanding where valuables were in the home. An incident report lists $30,000 in cash as stolen.

The suspects then made off with the victim's car, which was found ditched later down the street on Greenbrier Rd.
