The North Myrtle Beach Public Safety Department is looking for the four people pictured along with this article.
Officers say they responded to a home on Magnolia Drive about 1 a.m. July 22nd.
The victim told police he was asleep when three people had forced their way into his home asking for money, credit cards, guns and Personal Identification Numbers.
The victim said when they were done burglarizing the home, one of the suspects told him to lay down on the floor and wait for 20 minutes.
The victim waited for about 5 minutes before getting out and running to a neighbor's home to call police.
The responding officer noted in the incident report that every drawer in the victim's bedroom had been dumped out as though the suspects were looking for something.
After the victim had a chance to go through the home, he told police he was missing two flat screen TVs, about five guns, several cases of Pepsi and beer, a Wii gaming system, and several cases of cigarettes.
Police have issued warrants for Kristy Merritt Rich, Randy Eugene Melvin II, Nicholas Adam Melvin and Daniel Gene Autry on charges of Burglary First Degree, Kidnapping, Grand Larceny and Possession of a Firearm in the commission of a violet crime. Police have not said which three they believe broke into the home or why there are four people charged. We'll post an update with that information when we get it.
