Police: Three armed men steal keys from inside home, take off in car

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after they say three men with guns walked up to a Wilmington home and forced their way inside before stealing some keys and taking off in the car outside.

It happened around 3:15 a.m. when officers say a man who lives inside a home in the 600 block of Meares Street was standing outside his house. That’s when they say three men, all holding handguns, pushed the man back inside before ransacking the home.

Police say the trio took a set of keys while they were inside, eventually taking off from the scene in the car parked outside. Officers say the man who was robbed told them the keys and car belong to his wife.

At last check, the three men and the stolen car were still at large. WPD says no one was hurt during the crime, but say officers are still investigating.
