Alexander native killed in home-invasion robbery in Florida, large gun collection and pickup truck stolen

posted by Billie Owens in alexander, crime, news.

From our news partner WBTA:

William Reiss, 68, was shot to death at his home in Polk City, Fla., last Wednesday during a home-invasion robbery.

The Polk County Sheriff said he believed Reiss could have been targeted for his large gun collection.

The culprits apparently made off with more than 30 guns stolen from the crime scene along with Reiss’s pickup truck and they are currently still at large.

Reiss was an Alexander native with many family members still in the area and a former correction officer at Attica Correctional Facility.
