A couple lives in the home with their three children, the youngest is 11-years-old. the family says the teens who busted in demanded money and jewelry. They say the teens took off running when they realized police officers were approaching the home. They did manage to steal a small amount of cash. Police still aren't sure if the robbers forced their way in or got in after knocking on a door.
The family tells police two of the teens had a gun and threatened to harm them. Frankfort Police Major Fred Deaton says officers did recover one of the weapons. He says the nature of the crime has the department on alert.
