She said she did not answer the door but it sounded like two men were on her porch.

At about 10:30 p.m., the woman went to the store and left her brother and sister alone.

She got a frantic call from her sister who said someone broke into the home and they were hiding in the back room.

The sister said the intruders started banging on the door to their room. She screamed and the intruders fled.

When deputies arrived, they could see pry marks on the front door, but nothing was out of order or taken.

Deputies said the home next door was also entered. The intruders broke the back screen and went through the window. Deputies contacted the owner of the neighboring home and he said $700 in cash he hid in a jacket pocket was missing.
