The Monroe Police Department and the Green County Sheriff’s Office are searching for a man allegedly involved in an armed home invasion.

Police were called to a home in the 5400 block of County Hwy DR in Green County around 5:45 p.m. Thursday night.

A woman told officers she was home alone when an armed man entered through an unlocked door. The man ransacked a bedroom before running away with jewelry and cash.

Police said the woman was not hurt during the incident.

The Green County Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, assisted by the Monroe Police Department, was able to track the suspect for a while. Police believe the track led to an area where the suspect had a vehicle waiting.

The suspect was described as a white male in his mid-30s, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall, with light facial/unshaven hair. His clothing was described as a gray sweatshirt, brown cloth gloves and a brown stocking cap.

Anyone with information should call the Green County Sheriff’s Office at 608-328-9400.
