The Elk Grove police department is investigating a residential burglary of a home in the 9000 block of Camden Lake Way around 5 pm last night.
According to a post on the Elk Grove Police Department Facebook page, officers responded to a call of a burglary in progress. The victim told officers they had just returned home and left the garage door open because they were planning on leaving again shortly. At some point, the victim heard the door open from the garage into the house and believed it was a family member. The victim then saw two suspects armed with guns in the hallway. The suspects then left the house and got into a black sedan that was possibly driven by a female.
The suspects were described as African American males, late teens or early twenties, both were wearing dark-colored clothing and covered their faces with their sweatshirts.
