DICKSON, Tenn. (WKRN) – The Dickson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an armed home invasion.

The crime occurred on Monday around 3 p.m. at a home in the 1500 block of Highway 48 South.

The victim told deputies he returned home and found three armed men inside.

He said the men were wearing camouflage clothing, masks and gloves. The suspects had armed themselves with the victim’s weapons and held him at gunpoint while they covered his head with a sweater and tied him up.

Three long guns and five pistols were stolen from the home.

When the suspects left, they took the victim’s white 2002 Ford F-150 pickup truck.

At 8 p.m. that night, deputies received a report of a vehicle on fire on West Tennessee City Road. When deputies arrived the vehicle was fully involved in flames and was totally destroyed.

The vehicle was identified as the vehicle stolen from the victim earlier in the day.

Witnesses saw a vehicle in the area and described it as 90’s model Jeep Cherokee tan in color with large tires and black wheels with a small lift.
