Vernon Hills police are investigating a home invasion reported Monday on the 200 block of Augusta Drive.

Police responding to a call of a residential burglary learned that three armed men entered the home. The intruders were in the home a short time and fled, police said, and no one was injured.

Investigators said they believe the family was specifically targeted and that the intruders were looking for specific items in the home. Police said the break in was not random and is similar to other home invasions/robberies that have occurred in the Chicago area in which intruders target specific families looking for items inside the house.

Anyone with information should call (847) 362-4449.
