Police continue search for home invasion robbers

Two men wanted for assaulting a Williams resident at gunpoint in a home invasion robbery last week remain at large. 

Deputies from the Colusa County Sheriff’s Office, along with officers from the Williams Police Department and California Highway Patrol, were called to the 2500 block of Davis Road around 4 AM on July 9 on a report of an assault in which the victim had been held at gunpoint, said Sheriff’s Det. Sgt. Jose Ruiz, in a statement. Upon arrival, law enforcement located the victim outside the residence. 

Through the preliminary investigation, Colusa County Sheriff’s officials learned that marijuana might have been the primary target for the robbery, according to statements the victim made after the incident. 

Ruiz said the victim claimed he no longer cultivates marijuana due to a county ban on “outdoor grows,” and that investigators confirmed that no marijuana was growing on the property. 

“The suspects fled the scene by unknown means after taking an undisclosed amount of U.S. currency,” Ruiz said. “At this time the suspects are unknown and outstanding. An extensive search of the areas was conducted with negative results.” 

This is not the first time a home invasion occurred in Colusa County for the purpose of stealing marijuana. 

In 2017, several men stole money, marijuana, and other valuables in a home invasion robbery outside Arbuckle. 

Ruiz said last week’s robbery was not related, and is still under investigation. 

Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to contact the Colusa County Sheriff’s Office at 458-0200. ■
