“We’ve got four of the people involved in custody right now and we are still looking for the fifth,” Hargett said.

Hargett said one of the women involved knew one of the residents. The group arrived at the residence and dropped two of the males off nearby, according to Hargett. The two remaining in the car took a male from the residence and drove around before leaving him outside of the car. That is when all involved returned to the home and entered.

The mother of the boy who was picked up was in the residence and the group pulled a weapon and robbed the home, according to officials.

The homeowner was not injured.
