WEST JORDAN — West Jordan police are searching for two robbers who invaded a home Wednesday night.

At about 9:30 p.m., two men with handguns forced their way into a home in the Oquirrh Shadows area at approximately 5580 W. 6600 South.

The men knocked on the door and claimed they were having car trouble. After the victim opened the door, the men pulled out their guns and forced their way in. The homeowner was uninjured, police Lt. Kyle Shepherd said.

Police said the men took money and other items in the house. The men stole the homeowner's vehicle and drove it to a local Wal-Mart, where police believe a getaway driver was waiting, Shepherd said.

The men ditched the stolen car and left in a white passenger car. Police are searching for a white male with blond hair in his early 20s and an olive skinned man with dark hair in his mid-20s.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 840-4000.
