Three Central Kitsap residents had their apartment ransacked at gunpoint Nov. 4 in a apparent case of mistaken identity.
At 12:46 a.m. a Kitsap County sheriff’s deputy was dispatched to a home invasion that had occurred 30 minutes prior in the 4400 block of NW Wedgewood Lane, according to reports.
Three male suspects broke down the door to the apartment after the 21-year-old resident opened and quickly closed and locked the door after seeing one of the men holding a hand gun.
One of the suspects in a camouflage jacket pointed a silver-colored revolver at the 21-year-old and told him to get on the floor. The suspect said the assailants were at his home “Because you jacked Black Chris!”
The resident’s wife did not know what was going on until her husband ran into the bedroom and woke her up.
The suspects also woke up the resident’s roommate, who was sleeping in his bedroom and held him at gunpoint while they ransacked his room.
Wallets, $265 in cash, DVDs, video games, an iPod, cell phone and Playstation hand held device were among the stolen items.
The residents told the deputy that they do not know anyone named Black Chris. The 21-year-old said he knows two people that go by the name of “Chris” but has not seen either of them in over a year and has never had any problems or disputes with them.
The wife’s stolen debit card had charges made to it at 1:53 a.m. at a 7-Eleven store in Bremerton but detectives were not able to have access to the video surveillance video right away. Investigation continues by sheriff’s detectives.
