The Houston Police Department thinks an aggravated robbery involving a local homebuilder may have been an inside job.Police released composite sketches of two men wanted for robbing and shooting the owner of the Stone Brick Home Corporation." Earlier this month, the owner was paying some of his employees when two suspects barged in with semi-automatic pistols and demanded cash. They tied everyone up, struggled with the owner, and shot him twice. The suspects got away with $42,000 in cash. Police say it's possible one of the victim's employees set him up.

"It probably is somebody that knows this person, this victim, the manner in which he conducts his business," Officer Arthur Meijia of HPD's Robbery Division said.

The suspects are described as Salvadorian males. If you recognize them, call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. The victim, who has recovered from his wounds, is putting up an additional $5,000 in reward money.
