Loomis Home Invasion Suspect Captured in Roseville


SHARE with Friend




Two Loomis residents were bound and held at gunpoint during a home invasion robbery at their Creekside Lane residence this morning.

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. today, the male and female who live in the home called 911. Details are still sketchy, but they said they had been duct-taped to chairs for several hours. 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. 

The victims did not require medical attention. The investigation is ongoing. The mug shots are not available as the suspects are still being interviewed and haven’t yet been booked into the Placer County Jail.
