MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is looking for the woman suspected of committing a home invasion robbery in Eads, Tennessee on Monday.

People in an upscale neighborhood in Eads wondered what was going on when they saw sheriff's deputies at a house Tuesday night.  

"We're just concerned because I got kids outside playing, riding everybody got kids. They ride their bikes. We see sheriffs in the neighborhood. We're trying to figure out what's going on."

Deputies said the woman, who met the victim online, orchestrated the robbery.

Shelby County Sheriff's investigators posted a photo on their Facebook page asking for help identifying the woman in this photo. Investigators say the man who lives in the house communicated with the woman on Craigslist and gave her his address.

Sheriff's investigators said after the woman was in the house for a while, two armed men showed up demanding money. The man said he didn't have any, and they shot a 40-caliber bullet into the ceiling.

The homeowner ran out of his house and called the sheriff's office.

When deputies showed up they saw a nude woman running out of the house getting into a car with the two armed men.

The homeowner’s computer and wallet were stolen.

No one at the house where the home invasion happened wanted to talk.

SCSO warns the public to be cautious when meeting someone online and sharing information with them.
