Two arrested in Silverdale home-invasion robbery
Posted by John de Leon
Two men were arrested early this morning after a home-invasion robbery at The Madison at Ridgetop apartments at 1157 Voyager Lane Northwest in Silverdale.
According to the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to the apartment at around 12:50 a.m. after a neighbor complained of a disturbance. When deputies arrived they looked through a window and saw two masked men had tied up three people -- a woman and two men -- inside the apartment.
Deputies forced their way into the apartment and began fighting with the two masked men, both of whom appeared to be armed. After the men were subdued, deputies found one was armed with a handgun and the other had a realistic-looking pellet gun.
The two men arrested were a 22-year-old, who was also wanted on an outstanding 2006 arrest warrant for robbery; and a 19-year-old.
The motive for the home invasion appears to be robbery, the Sheriff's Office said. Deputies are trying to determine why that specific apartment was targeted.
In addition, deputies want to question the occupants of a black 2005 Hyundai Accent in connection with the robbery. The car's Washington license plate number is 948-WCK.
