Sonoma Sheriffs searching for armed home invasion robbery suspects.

Sonoma County Sheriff's deputies were dispatched to the 100 block on Eugenia Dr in Petaluma shortly after 3:00 AM this morning for multiple reports of armed home invasion robberies. We learned that a group of approximately nine suspects went to three different homes in the 100 and 200 blocks of Eugenia. They kicked doors in and confronted the homeowners while armed looking for mairjuana. At least one homeowner was tied up and reportedly pistol whipped.

Petaluma PD officers spotted two vehicles leaving the area and attempted traffic stops.A pursuit ensued to Novato. One vehicle, a white rental mini van stopped on SB 101 prior to the San Marin exit. Five African American men fled from the mini van fleeing to the west. A perimeter has been set and SWAT teams are searching the area for those suspects. Multiple firearms were located in and around the minivan. One of these suspects has been captured in the area and four remain outstanding.

The second vehicle was found in the Novato Costco parking lot where three suspects were taken into custody and one remains outstanding.

This information is very preliminary and it is a fluid and active event.
