KENT — Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a home invasion robbery at a small marijuana grow operation where four suspects — one possibly wearing a FBI shirt — entered the house and assaulted the homeowners.

According to the King County Sheriff’s Office, officers were called at 6:10 a.m. to the 4000 block of South 272 Street in unincorporated King County near Kent with reports of a burglary.

When officers arrived at the scene, they discovered not a burglary, but a home invasion robbery. According to sheriff’s deputies, four black males entered the home, fired at least two guns and assaulted two people inside. The suspects fled into a car nearby.

The two victims suffered minor injuries, deputies said.

It appears the robbers were after money inside the home, which was harboring a small marijuana grow intended for personal use. The suspects did get away with a small bit of money, officers said.

Officers called to the scene searched for suspects and brought a K9 unit to the area. No suspects had been found at 10 a.m., police said.

Police said the home was targeted for its marijuana grow, and the general public is not at risk.

King County sheriff’s deputies are still investigating the incident, and anyone who has additional information on the home invasion is encouraged to call 206-296-3311.
