Robbery - West Point

On 10/13/17 at about 2030 hours Calaveras County Sheriff's Office Dispatch received a call of a robbery that occurred earlier in the day. Deputies responded to the 22000 block of Hwy 26 in West Point to investigate the incident. Once on scene deputies were informed by the victims that the incident occurred earlier in the day at a marijuana grow site located on Skull Flat Road, West Point. The four victims informed deputies that two vehicles entered the property on Skull Flat Road with the vehicle occupants identifying themselves as law enforcement. The victims said that there were between five to six suspects and at least three of them were armed with guns. Two of the victims were tied up by the suspects. One of the suspects reportedly was wearing a badge during this incident but did not display any other law enforcement identification or markings. The suspects left the property with approximately five hundred marijuana plants, a large amount of cash, and also stole a black colored Ford F250 truck bearing California license plate #8D04533. The identity of the suspects is unknown and the two suspect vehicles were described as a silver sport utility vehicle and a red truck (pictures attached).
