They reportedly hit her with the gun and then ransacked the house, Logan said, after which they left.
The victim was then able to go to a neighbor’s residence and call 911. Deputy Gary Tankersly responded to the scene. After arriving at her home, he requested assistance from Moore County sheriff’s investigators Mike Rainey and Shane Taylor.
The Moore County Sheriff’s department worked around the clock during the weekend, and after following up on a number of leads, the four suspects were in custody by 1 a.m. Sunday morning Logan said.
According to Logan, the investigation is continuing and other charges are pending.
