Department Investigating Home Invasion

On 9/26/2016 at about 9:37 AM officers from the Fortuna Police Department responded to the 2800 block of Shields Lane for a report of a home invasion style robbery.

Officers contacted the homeowner, a 79 year-old male, who reported that three persons entered his residence through an open garage door. The subjects were all wearing “hoodie” type sweatshirts that concealed their faces. The victim stated that one subject was a male and one was a female based on their voices. One of the suspects was holding a rifle with a scope and ordered the victim to open his safe where they took cash and jewelry.

The suspects then put the victim on the floor and tied up his hands. The three suspects left in the victim’s 2016 Jeep Cherokee vehicle.

At 10:55 AM officers with the Rio Dell Police Department and Rio Dell Fire responded to the 500 block of Edwards Dr. for a report of a vehicle fully engulfing in flames. After extinguishing the vehicle, it was determined to be the 2016 Jeep Cherokee stolen from Shields Lane.

Anyone with any information regarding this crime is asked to contact the Fortuna Police Department at (707) 725-7550 or the WeTip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME.
