HELENA-WEST HELENA, Ark. (KTHV) – There has been a series of burglaries and home invasions in Helena-West Helena over the past few months.

There were at least three just this past weekend, and in two of them, shots were fired, although no one was hurt.

The suspects are still on the run.

In one of the home invasions, a former police officer found himself staring down the barrel of a gun.

“I just raised my hands up, and stared down at the bed cause I didn’t want to stare at him,” said Mike Strickland.

The retired Helena-West Helena police officer used his training Sunday night, to not provoke a masked man standing inside his bedroom and holding a .357 pistol.
