Armed home invasion robbery in Little Rock investigated

A group of robbers forced their way into a Little Rock woman's home and then held her at gunpoint while they made off with gaming systems, a computer and an iPhone, police said.

The 23-year-old victim reported she was home on West 24th Street near Aldersgate Road about 2:15 p.m. Monday when four to five men, including three who had handguns, forced their way inside, according to a Little Rock Police Department report.

The men forced the woman to the floor at gunpoint and demanded to know "where the money was," the report said, noting the victim told them where to find it.

"[The victim] said the subject with the gun to her head said he was going to kill her ... if they did not get all the money," police wrote in the report.

Police say the group fled in a newer, dark blue or black Chevy Impala with a PlayStation 3, a PlayStation 4, a Dell computer and an iPhone 5, items valued at a combined $1,700. The money the victim told the robbers about, however, was not taken, the report said.

All of the robbers were described as black men with average builds who were wearing all black except for white bandannas on their faces. Police believe the car they fled in had a license plate containing the numbers 931.

This story is why America needs police drones with cameras overhead 24/7. Just think if a drone had been above Little Rock filming everything when this crime was committed. The police could see both where the robbers drove from in their car, by rolling back the recording, and where they drove to after the crime, and go find and arrest them. The government is anticipating over 20,000 drones in the air by 2020, according to reports. There will be a remarkable reduction in crimes like this one, once everyone knows the police are watching them anytime they leave their homes. Only criminals who are determined to go to prison quickly will try something like this once the cameras are airborne.
