BIG SPRING--The investigation and arrests continue after a violent home invasion in Big Spring earlier this month and police are closing in on the suspects they say are responsible.

The break-in happened around midnight on June 3rd. Big Spring Police say they already had two of the suspects in custody, even before the incident was reported.

According to investigators, between five and seven armed gunmen, busted into a home on State Street. Once inside, the men pointed guns at the children, threatened the adults and pistol whipped the father.

The group took what they wanted from the house, threatened the family not to call police, then left.  NewsWest 9 has learned, some weapons and some of the stolen items have been recovered.

As a result of the investigation, Police have caught up with five of the suspects.  31-year-old Felix Jaramillo, 31-year-old Phillip Martinez and two 16-year-olds have already been charged.

Jaramillo and one of the teens were stopped by narcotics officers on State Street that night, when they were seen driving with their head lights off.  One of them was seen throwing something out of the car. That something, turned out to be a shotgun.

The latest arrest came on Wednesday, when 28-year-old Abel Guzman was taken into custody on an aggravated robbery warrant.  But, Police aren't done.  They're looking to make at least one more arrest.

26-year-old Clifford Anglin is wanted for his alleged role in the break in.  Anglin is considered to be armed and dangerous. Police believe he's hiding somewhere in West Texas.

If you have any information on Anglin's whereabouts or if you see him, you are asked to call Big Spring Police immediately or Crime Stoppers at 432-264-2550.
