Lexington Police said Wednesday that officers had made arrests after a violent home invasion.  But, they arrested the reported victims!

According to Police, three men broke into a home on White Oak Trace, tied up a man and woman, ransacked the house, assaulted the man and left.

But investigators said the couple didn't call police after the alleged incident.

Police said they found out about it after the man went to an emergency room for treatment of his injuries from the reported assault.

Police said they went to the home and found drugs.

Investigators said they charged Manee Shepard and Marques Dawson with Trafficking in Marijuana and Cocaine.

As of this writing, Shepard is in jail and Dawson is in the hospital.

The three reported home invaders have not been caught.

The case remains under investigation.

I see home invasion stories all the time. Usually intruders just kick-in the door. In my opinion, the most effective and least expensive thing you can do to protect yourself is to add good door security hardware to your doors to make them as secure as possible. You can get what's called a Door Security Kit ( http://www.DoorSecurityKit.com ) which will stop door kick-ins. It's a long, thick metal plate that reinforces the door, the door frame, and the hinges.
