Clinton County Sheriff Releases More Details on Rural Trenton Home Invasion

September 27, 2016

Clinton County Sheriff Doug Maue has released more information on a Sunday morning home invasion at a rural Trenton home and wants to assure residents this was not a random crime.

Maue says one of the residents of the home called 9-1-1 to report two African American males who were armed with handguns had forced their way into the residence by kicking in the door. The caller also advised that shots had been fired and believed there may be wounded inside.

Maue reports the two armed intruders had left the scene prior to the arrival of sheriff’s deputies and Trenton, New Baden and Breese Police.

After the scene was secured, Sugar Creek Ambulance was summoned to the location to treat a female from the residence who suffered a gunshot wound to the buttocks. A second female resident received a blow to the head by an intruder. Both female were transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese where they were treated and released.

Two male residents were unharmed and were taken to the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office for questioning. Maue says both men were later released with possible charges pending.

The sheriff reports detectives determined that one of the male residents exchanged gunfire with the two intruders which led to the intruders leaving the scene.

A handgun was recovered from the residence as well as cannabis and other drug paraphernalia.

Maue says sheriff’s detectives are currently working on leads to identify the two intruders who left the scene. He reports the residents of the home knew the intruders.

The Clinton County Crime Stoppers is offering a $200 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons involved.
