Two Loomis residents were bound and held at gunpoint during a home invasion robbery at their Creekside Lane residence Thursday morning (Feb 06). Within minutes of freeing themselves and calling the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, all three suspects were arrested as they drove on Interstate 80 in the victims’ stolen cars.
At 12:18 p.m. Thursday, the male and female who live in the home called 911. They said they had been duct-taped to chairs. The victims reported that the suspects, two men and one woman, aimed an AK-47 at the victims’ heads during their captivity. The suspects took personal property, weapons and the victims’ two cars.
Deputies swarmed the area, including Interstate 80, to watch for the cars. A few minutes later, they spotted the two victim cars on westbound 80, just east of Douglas Blvd. Freeway traffic was halted for several minutes while a male and a female suspect were taken into custody. With the assistance of the Roseville Police Department, the third suspect was arrested minutes later at a carwash near Riverside and Cirby Way. Weapons were found in the cars. Dena Erwin Public Information Officer with the Placer County Sheriff’s Office says charges have been filed.
The victims did not require medical attention. The investigation is ongoing.
