Southampton County, Va. – The Southampton County Sheriff’s Office has named four additional suspects in a Christmas Day home invasion robbery. One of those suspects has been arrested.

The sheriff’s office received a call about a home robbery in the 25000 block of Tennessee Road in the Adams Grove area of the county around 3 a.m. on Christmas Day.

The victim told deputies that four armed men wearing masks came into her home and made her and her daughters get into a bedroom. The robbers stole Christmas presents, cash and credit cards.
