Three Arrested in DSM Area Home Invasion



Three juveniles have been arrested in connection with an armed burglary in a Des Moines suburb. Officials say a husband and wife were watching television Saturday night when five men entered the home through a basement window and crept upstairs. Two men armed with handguns ordered the couple to the floor while the others searched the home. They left the home with less than $200 cash, cell phones, a tablet computer and other electronics and three bags of Halloween candy. The suspects were caught because a Polk County Sheriff's deputy remembered encountering them at a gas station shortly before the home invasion. They face first-degree burglary charges.
