An elderly woman was not injured Tuesday morning after two intruders forced their way into her Chaves County home before ransacking it and then leaving with several items, including a vehicle.

Charles Yslas, chief deputy with the Chaves County Sheriff’s Office, said deputies responded to a home invasion in Chaves County at 11 a.m. Tuesday. He did not want to disclose the address of the residence due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.

Though not injured, the elderly female was shaken up by the experience, Yslas said.

Deputies are now searching for two suspects. One of the suspects is a Hispanic male, described as 5 feet 6 inches tall, 180 pounds and wearing a beanie. The second suspect is described as a Hispanic woman who was wrapped in a blanket, Yslas said.

Two people came to the door armed with a weapon and forced their way into a house that was inhabited by the elderly female. The two individuals held the woman against her will while ransacking the house, before making off with numerous items including a white Toyota Avalon belonging to the female resident.
