Police are searching for two suspects who may have been armed during the afternoon burglary.

Police are searching for two suspects who robbed a Molalla woman in her home Tuesday afternoon.

At 4:58 p.m. on April 22, officers from the Molalla Police Department, with the assistance from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Department, responded to a report of a possible armed robbery in the 1100 block of Meadow Drive in Molalla.

Initial reports listed a male suspect hiding in a closet pointing a firearm at the woman.

Molalla Police Chief Rod Lucich said Wednesday morning, however, that a gun was never actually in view.

“No guns were seen, but there were threats of a gun,” Lucich said. “We think what we have is an interrupted burglary. Most likely, it may have just been an opportunistic type of thing.”

The investigation revealed two suspects, both white males in their 20's, threatened the woman inside her home.

Both suspects were described as about five-feet, nine-inches tall with an average build. Both suspects concealed their faces, Lucich said. There were no signs of forced entry. Lucich said the woman had been in and out of her home prior to the burglary, and that small items are listed as stolen.

He said the burglary is not connected to the manhunt conducted in Molalla Tuesday. That suspect was six-foot, two at 250 pounds. “We don’t think the two incidents are connected,” he said. “This doesn’t match up.”

The burglary is still under investigation at this time. Neighbors are encouraged to ensure their doors and windows are properly secured. Anyone having any information regarding the investigation can contact the non-emergency dispatch number at 503-655-8211.
