PHOENIX -- Police are searching for two brazen suspects behind an early morning home invasion and robbery in West Phoenix.
According to investigators, two armed men broke into an apartment in the area of 49th Avenue and Thomas Road at about 4:30 a.m.
A woman was home alone with her 1-year-daughter at the time. Her husband reportedly had just left for work.
The men tied up the woman with duct tape and then ransacked the apartment. They eventually took off with nearly $4,000 in cash.
It took the woman about an hour to work her way out of the duct tape. She then called the police.
Investigators said the suspects, two Hispanic men in their early 30s, were seen driving away in a white truck.
Neither the woman nor her child was hurt.

Drug dealers keep $4000.00 in cash,but a lot of hispanics,either don't trust banks,or can't open an account because they're illegal and if their SSAN # they're using doesn't match their name their not opening a bank account.A lot of hispanics are targeted for robberies because they are known to carry cash,I will be in stores down here and watch guys pull out wads of cash to pay for stuff

My son and his wife live in Phoenix and they often relate stories of the increasing violence there. I have had in depth discussions with them regarding the importance of at least getting some sort of firearm for home defense, but as of now they refuse. Go figure.
