Las Vegas police are investigating a February break-in that involved three intruders at a home belonging to Pawn Stars reality TV show personality Corey “Big Hoss” Harrison.

Laura Melzer, a Las Vegas police officer, said Tuesday that no one was injured and it wasn’t clear if anything was taken after a resident confronted three males early on Feb. 16 in the home.

Police say the intruders fled before officers arrived.

Publicist Laura Herlovich says Harrison owns the house and family members live there.

In an email to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, Harrison’s publicist, Laura Herlovich, confirmed that the house belonged to Harrison.

In a statement, Harrison said, “Our situation turned out better than most as no one was harmed or hurt and they ran away. As a member of this community most of my life, I hope we catch them and no one else can be put in harm’s way by these people again.”

The family has increased security in their home following the break-in.

An SUV was seen on surveillance video just prior to the intrusion. The suspects were described as three white males in their late teens to early 20s.

Corey Harrison is the youngest Harrison family member on the TV show, including his father, Rick Harrison, and grandfather, Richard Benjamin Harrison.

Harrison’s Pawn Stars co-star Chumlee (real name: Austin Lee Russell) was arrested for multiple drug and weapons charges in March of 2016, but the reality-show star didn’t face any jail time after his lawyers negotiated a plea bargain.
