[UPDATE] Man Missing After Home Invasion Robbery Located And Arrested

UPDATED 12.20.2010 by Julie Montanaro

The last of three men accused in a bizarre home invasion robbery was sentenced today (12-20-2010).

Gregory Pratt was sentenced to time served in jail plus five years probation for a home invasion robbery last December.

He was one of three masked men who burst into a home on Burgess Drive in search of money and drugs. Pratt's role, prosecutors say, was to tie the victims up with duct tape.

But the robbery took a strange turn when one of the victims disappeared and initially police weren't sure if he'd been kidnapped.
He turned up at the hospital a couple of days later.

The other convicted robbers, Maurice Bowers and Travis Williams, are already serving time in prison for the hold up.

He disappeared in the wake of a home invasion robbery and no one knew if he was alive or dead.

Yet Kenny "Kennedy" Greene showed up at the hospital early this morning and this robbery victim is now facing charges too.

Deputies were called to a home on Burgess Drive Wednesday morning after three men barged in, forced a woman to the floor and beat up 34 year old Kenny Greene.

The culprits were caught, but there was blood on the floor and no sign of Greene until he showed up at the hosiptal at 2:15 this morning.

Deputies say he had a fat lip and some cuts to his face, but was very much alive.

"Questions remain, the investigation is continuing, but two important things happened yesterday. We were able to capture the suspects involved in this robbery and we were able to make sure that Mr. Greene wasn't lying dead in a ditch somewhere," said LCSO Spokesman Tony Drzewiecki.

Deputies say they did find 43 grams of cocaine in the house and say the robbers went there looking for drugs and money.

Greene was arrested this morning at the hospital and charged with cocaine trafficking.

He now joins the three men accused of robbing him in the Leon County jail. Maurice Bowers, Gregory Pratt and Travis Williams all face charges for home invasion and kidnapping.
