PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Pender County Sheriff's Office is investigating a reported armed robbery that happened Wednesday morning around 11:00.

According to officers, when the victim got home he found two men wearing masks and armed with guns inside his house on Point Caswell Road in Atkinson. The victim said the suspects took some jewelry and ran off into nearby woods.

Sable and K9 units were called in to search for the suspects. They combed through the woods while deputies spoke to neighbors. The suspects were not found, but deputies found some jewelry from the home.

Sheriff's deputies say neighbors spotted what looked like a gray or white Chevy parked near the woods. At this time, they believe the suspects got into that car and drove away.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Pender County Sheriff's Office at 910-259-1515.
