PRINCETON — Deputies with the Mercer County Sheriff’s Department are investigating an armed robbery reported this morning at a mobile home park near Princeton.

The incident was reported 1 a.m. at the Winfrey Mobile Home Park, said Deputy D.A. Furches.

Two men kicked down the back door of a home and demanded money. They may have fled on foot, Furches said. One of the men was armed with a pistol.

No injuries were reported.

Furches went to the scene with his K-9 partner, Maggie, but a trail was not located.
