    Glastonbury police are looking for the man who invaded a home and tied up an elderly couple.

    A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the person who tied up a couple during a home invasion in Glastonbury.

    Bob and Lynn Murray were sitting inside their home on Thompson Street when a masked man broke in and threatened them with a gun sometime between 10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on Nov. 26, according to police.

    Bob Murray, 69, said the intruder, dressed in all black, pointed a gun at their heads, tied their hands with a phone cord and then demanded that the couple take him to the safe. The man brought them downstairs, tied their hands and feet together and threatened to shoot them, according to Murray.

    The intruder tied the hands of 71-year-old Lynn Murray so tightly, that it broke her wrist, Murray said.

    After tying up the couple, the intruder ransacked the house, stealing about $600 and approximately $100,000 in high end jewelry and Rolex watches.

    According to police, witnesses saw a small sedan-type car driving slowly past the house several times on the night of the home invasion. The car eventually parked in front of the home during the time frame of the incident, police said.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Glastonbury Police Department at 860-633-8301.
