2 arrested for South Fayette home invasion

Fayette County Sheriff's deputies have arrested two people in connection with a home invasion Friday morning at a home off Padgett Road in south Fayette County.

The two were arrested in a traffic stop by deputies who spotted a vehicle reportedly connected to the incident at the intersection of Ga.

The suspects names are not being released at this time because of the ongoing nature of the investigation, Rowan said.

Inside the vehicle, deputies found items that were stolen from the location during the incident, Rowan said.


Below is the original story that appeared about the incident:

Fayette County Sheriff’s deputies are searching for four individuals in connection with a home invasion Friday morning that occurred at a residence in south Fayette County near Ga. Highway 74 South. The three victims of the home invasion were unharmed.

Sheriff’s spokesperson Brent Rowan said that someone at the residence on Kimberly Court off Padgett Road called 911 at 9:30 a.m., with the first deputy arriving at the residence at 9:35 a.m. The deputy found three adults males handcuffed inside the home, Rowan said.
