FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Investigators with the Franklin County Sheriff's Department are looking for one of three suspects in a home invasion.
It happened off Highway 243 in the Trapptown community.
As of now, police do not have any leads on where the third suspect is located.
They have the other two in custody, who will not give any information to authorities.
Mark Bullock retraces the steps three male suspects walked after breaking into his home on County Road 82.
He said they were just steps from his children's room.
"My daughter and kids room is here on the left, and they (suspects) were here, standing in the hallway," he showed WAFF 48 News.
Now a blood stained screen door and emotional scars are all that are left from the weekend break-in.
"For me it wasn't as bad as it was for the kids, and when you've got 3 small children you know they don't understand," Bullock said.
Reports indicate the three suspects fled on foot. 26-year-old Miguel Garcia, and 28-year-old Jessey Guadalupe were caught and detained.
Sheriff Larry Plott said the Russellville trio had walked to Bullock's home after wrecking their car just up the road.
"We believe they were under the influence," Sheriff Plott said. "Why they picked this house, unless it was in the path, of an area they knew...even a person under the influence it wouldn't be typical for them to break into a house, there is a question have they done this before?"
While officials said the motive was burglary, deputies still have few answers, though, as the two detained refuse to break their silence. It leaves one suspect at-large, and a family still traumatized by the incident.
Garcia and Guadalupe are charged with burglary and theft of property, and are being held on a $50,000 dollar bond.
There's a reward for any information on the third suspect leading to an arrest and conviction. You can contact the Franklin County Sheriff's Department at (256)-332-8811.
