During the search for suspects Thursday night, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office posted a warning on their Facebook page warning residents in the Green district to lock their doors and report suspicious activity or people to law enforcement immediately.

Residents say crime is common in the area, so they weren't completely surpised by the incident. 

“We don’t let the kids out to play, you know, without someone older," said Cindy McGinnis, a resident. 

After investigating, deputies said the suspects were not located but believe they are three teenage males.

Deputies beleive the teens were wearing dark clothing and one teen was wearing a blue bandanna.
