GRAY — The search was on Wednesday for a woman who burst her way into a local home the night before, threatened an elderly woman with a club and stole medication.
To protect the victim, Cumberland County Sheriff's investigators would not release her name or address.
At about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, police said, the thief broke into the home while the elderly woman was home alone and in bed. When the woman went to turn on a light, the suspect threatened her with a bat or a stick, police said.
The suspect stole prescription drugs and fled, police said.
By Wednesday night, the thief had not been caught. Police are asking anyone with information to call Detective Steven Gorham at 774-1444, ext. 2171.
