Kevin Kelshaw reported to Historic City News that at least two home invasion robbers are being sought at this time in connection with a home invasion that occurred at a residence on Scrub Jay Drive Tuesday evening.
Deputies responded to the residence shortly after 8:00 p.m. when a woman reported that she found the victim; bleeding from his face, torso and legs. The report said that the victim was bound with duct tape around his head and zip ties around his arms and legs.
The victim was found sitting on the floor in the living room of his residence. He was treated at the scene by emergency medical personnel and transported to Shands-Jacksonville Hospital for additional treatment.
Witnesses say that they observed a silver Pontiac G6 driving away from the area about the time of the incident.
Inside the home deputies located an elaborate marijuana growing operation along with marijuana and paraphernalia.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information concerning this investigation is asked to contact the Robbery-Homicide Unit of the St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office at (904) 824-8304.
