Methuen Searches for Home Invasion Suspects

Methuen Police are searching for three suspects in connection with an armed home invasion at about 3 p.m., Wednesday afternoon.

A Police spokesman says a short Hispanic male broke into an apartment at 50 Danbury Drive South near route 213 and fled on foot with a handgun. Police say they were searching for an older gray or green Acura with three Hispanic males inside. Massachusetts State Police joined the search after reports received of a middle aged male wearing a blue shirt jumped off a low end of an Interstate 93 bridge over the Merrimack River and apparently landed on a riverside trail.

A search by Methuen Police marine unit and State Police air wing turned up nothing by dusk. The incident remains under investigation.
