THREE men have been charged following an alleged home invasion in Moorhead Avenue, Mornington, 3am, Friday 10 April.

Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Steve Reidy, of Somerville CIU, said the residents were awoken and confronted by the offenders, one of whom was allegedly armed with a firearm.

The house was ransacked before the offenders fled in a car which was later found crashed and abandoned at Merricks North.

Police searching the area arrested and charged a Rosebud man, 18, and a Safety Beach man, 24, with aggravated burglary. Both were remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

A Rosebud teen, 17, was charged with aggravated burglary and remanded to appear at a children’s court at a later date and a Mornington man, 20, was charged with drug trafficking and remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Detective Reidy said the men were “known to each other”.
