Swat members surrounded a mobile home in El Paso County, searching for two men wanted for a string of home break-ins.
Authorities are looking for 20-year-old Gino Patrick Rael and 20-year-old Nathaniel Flavio Gonzales. They are accused of breaking into into more than a dozen homes in Colorado Springs, and three homes in the Security area.
Authorities had received information that the suspects might be living in a mobile home on Highway 85/87 near South Academy.
Swat members and K9 units were called to the home.
A robot was sent inside the home because there were concerns that
there might be explosives inside.
No one was found inside the home. Investigators are now looking for evidence that might help them track the suspects down.
11 News spoke with a man who lives in the mobile home park, and watched everything unfold. He says he was concerned for his young daughter's safety.
"As a parent I was a little concerned because I have a 4-year-old. I just kinda made sure she was in her bedroom, made sure she stayed away from the windows," said neighbor David Brumfield.
The two suspects are accused of breaking into homes in the middle of the day. Police say the suspects ring the doorbell, or knock on the door, and if no one answers they go around to the back of the house and get in through a window or door.
Police say the men may have stolen weapons during some of the crimes, so they should be considered armed and dangerous.
Rael is described at a Hispanic male, 5'8" tall and 164 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He is believed to be driving a late 80s or 90s white Subaru station wagon, with unknown license plates.
Gonzales is described as a Hispanic man, about 5'7" tall and 105 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes.
