The Highlands County Sheriff's Office was investigating Wednesday a home invasion robbery that occurred Monday night on North Self Avenue in Avon Park.
Between 9:30 p.m. Monday and 12:29 a.m. Tuesday, the homeowner, a 66-year-old man, alleged the robbers entered his home and took about $1,150 cash and his $10 wallet.
The homeowner was not able to give a description of the alleged robbers.
Deputies were dispatched to the crime scene a few seconds after the incident was reported and arrived on scene in about three minutes.
The homeowner told investigators the robbers were armed. The report was unclear about what type of weapon was involved.
