Jackson police are searching for three men who broke into a home Wednesday morning and robbed the people inside at gunpoint.

Officers were dispatched to a home in the 1000 block of Milwaukee Street around 11 a.m. Wednesday.

The Jackson Police Department tells FOX 47 three armed men went into the home and forced the people inside to get on the floor. The suspects stole cell phones and other items before running away.

A police K-9 tracked the suspects to a vacant home in the 1000 block of Martin Street, the next street over.

Police surrounded the home and ordered anyone inside to come out. After a short while of no response, police obtained keys from the landlord and a search warrant to go inside the home. The suspects were not found inside, police said.

No information about the suspects is available at this time.

Anyone with information about the home invasion is asked to call the Jackson Police Department at 517-788-4100.

FOX 47 is working to get more details and will update the story as more information becomes available.
