Items from Violent Home Invasion Found in Acworth

The suspects tied up the victim and and held her at gunpoint as they stole items from her Cartersville home.

An investigation of a "violent" home invasion Wednesday in Cartersville has reached Acworth.

Bartow County Sheriff Clark Millsap says investigators recovered property related to the home invasion from a trash can at an Acworth convenience store at Highway 92 at Interstate 75. Authorities believe the surveillance photographs show the suspects dumping the items on Wednesday.

Investigators are hoping the public can help them find the black car captured at the top left in the photos from the Shell Food Mart. They want to hear from anyone who may have seen the vehicle or knows anything about the suspects—an African-American male and Caucasian female who tied up the victim and and held her at gunpoint as they stole items from her home.

Information uncovered during the investigation indicates the pair specifically targeted the victim, who was home with her infant during the incident, according to Millsap. The alleged home-invasion robbery is not considered a random incident.

If you have information on the car or suspects, call the Criminal Investigations Division at 770-382-5050, extension 6029.
