    The victim, a 70-year-old woman, told officers that three men wearing masks had entered her home, taped her up and threatened her with a knife as they searched her home for valuables and a safe.

    Sterling Police Chief Gary Chamberland said the suspects were searching for a safe but "there was no safe."

    He continued, the victim was able to "free herself from some duct tape...she had been duct taped around her hands and legs."

    The woman called 911 after the suspects fled her home with $1,000 cash and her car.

    Chamberland said the victim was "not injured, she was very calm and was able to give us a good description."

    Police said the victim's black, four-door 2004 Cadillac Deville was recovered later in the day in a makeshift baseball field in Sterling.

    The car was processed by state police and brushed for fingerprints.

    "We don't believe it is random," Chamberland said. "We don't think the house was just picked out off the side of the street."

    Anyone with information regarding the home invasion is asked to call police.

    State police are also helping with the investigation, which is ongoing.
