Deputies arrived at the residence and found a 36-year-old victim tied up inside his home. Deputies learned that at approximately 12:00 AM three to five masked subjects, armed with long guns forced entry into the victim’s residence. The suspects forced the victim onto the floor and held him there at gunpoint while they searched his home. The victim was bound and tied up. The suspects reportedly took over 100 pounds of processed marijuana from the residence in addition to a large sum of cash. The suspects also stole the victim’s truck. Calaveras County Detectives responded to the scene and are conducting follow-up.
