... "Jones said the trio entered the home of 62-year Edmond Cooper ... at about 12:30 a.m. through the back door, which had been left unlocked."

"Debbie Cooper, Edmond's wife, was still up and a suspect knocked her out by striking her over the head. The men then entered the room of the Coopers' 15-year old son. The suspects used ziploc ties to restrain the juvenile. The three men then entered the hallway of the residence, according to Jones."

Mr Cooper needs to have a damn tactical shotgun or move to a nicer area! The company I work for told me "no" when I asked them to pay for an alarm for my service van. Their exact words were "work hard and MOVE" so I did!
