The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary is investigating a violent home robbery that occurred in Paradise Wednesday night.
Officers responded to a report of a break and entry at a residence on Cameo Drive in Paradise. During the course of that investigation it was discovered that a robbery had occurred at a residence on Milton Road a short time prior and was connected with the break and entry on Cameo Drive. There was nobody home during the break and entry on Cameo Drive.
Three armed men forced their way into a residence on Milton Road a short time before the Cameo Drive break and entry. During that robbery on Milton Road, two shotguns and a quantity of ammunition was stolen. Police have concerns about these stolen firearms. As a result of that incident, one man received injuries and was treated by medical staff, and has since been released from hospital. Both incidents are believed to have been targeted crimes.
