An investigation led deputies to believe the suspect mad entry into the residence by using a garage door opener that was in the victim’s vehicle, which was parked in the driveway.
Though no items were stolen in the incident, detectives are investigating it as a first-degree burglary.
The suspect is described as a black man in his early 20’s, between 5’8” and 6’ tall, with a thin build and wearing black clothing with a grey t-shirt covering his face.
