For the third time this week, the Hidalgo County Sheriff's Department is investigating a home invasion with the most recent north of Palmview. It happened on Tuesday afternoon at a home located on Jose de la Cruz street. The victims were getting ready for a Bar-B-Que when three men pulled up to the residence and pulled out guns and demanded the family to go back into the home. Once everybody was inside the home the suspects demanded money and ended up collecting $30 dollars and a cell phone. Police say there has been a increase in home invasions on the west side of the county and leads indicate it may be the same group of men committing the robberies.
