    The Clay County Sheriff’s Office said three people kicked in the front door and one of them was armed with a gun.

    The report said the robbers “forced a pistol in the victim’s mouth threatening to shoot him if he did not disclose where the money was.”

    The homeowner eventually told the robbers $140,000 was hidden in the attic.

    Deputies said after the suspects found the money, they forced the suspect into his bedroom where they bound him with cellphone charging cords and pepper-sprayed him in the face. 

    On Tuesday, investigators arrested 19-year-old Skylar Albritton and 25-year-old Juwan Grier in connection with the home invasion. 

    Action News Jax reached out to the Sheriff’s Office to confirm if the other suspect has been caught or is still on the run.
