Police discovered a man wanted in connection to an armed home invasion hiding in a rolled-up rug Wednesday, March 10. 

On that day, the Northborough Police Department and Massachusetts State Police were searching for a Worcester suspect wanted for an armed home invasion that occurred earlier that morning.

Worcester Police were looped in and converged on a Cutler Street residence seeking suspect Tyler Rawson, 26, police said.

Rawson could not be found inside the home. A Trooper noticed some odd-looking debris on the building's roof - some trash bags and a rolled-up rug.
