Four young men between the ages of 17 and 20 have been arrested in connection with a home invasion in Herkimer County.

Police say two of the men, wearing masks, entered the residence on Ryan Road in the Town of Norway with what appeared to be firearms. They confronted a male and a 15-year-old girl, and made the girl help the load bags with cartons of cigarettes and cash. The two then left the residence and fled in a vehicle driven by a third man. The man inside the home, who initially pretended to be a victim, was in fact a part of the plan.

19-year-old Hajrudin Cvrk, 20-year-old Michael Litz and 17-year-old Elvir Rosic were charged with burglary and endangering the welfare of a child. 18-year-old Kasim Sakinovic was also charged with harassment and disorderly conduct in addition to the other charges.

All four of the subjects were arraigned in the Town of Norway Court and remanded to the Herkimer County Jail on $30,000 bond.
