Three suspects are on the run in Fayette County after a family's guard dog confronts them.

These are the details, the Fayette County Sheriff's Department is looking for two suspects who entered a home on O'Possum Creek Road in Hico.

Deputies said a young girl was inside the home and locked herself in a room.  She set the family's dog after the suspected intruders.  That is when investigators said the suspects took off and jumped into a green van with a black hatch door.  The third suspect was waiting behind the wheel.

Deputies said they believe it was a Dodge Caravan and may have a West Virginia plate 6UR-827.

If you have any information on the incident or have seen the van, call the Fayette County Sheriff's Department at 304-574-4304 or CrimeStoppers at 304-255-STOP.  You can also leave anonymous tips online at the Sheriff's Departments web site or at their Facebook page.
