SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (AP) — Sheriff’s deputies have arrested three men in South Lake Tahoe as suspects in an attempted home invasion robbery over the weekend.
The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office responded at about 4:34 a.m. Saturday to a report of a home invasion robbery at a residence in Meyers.
Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Eric Palmberg told the Tahoe Daily Tribune two suspects entered a residence and attempted to conduct a robbery while using violence.
A police report said the residents resisted and “there were physical conflicts” between the two or three residents and both suspects.
Officials said the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle driven by a third party. They were spotted at a CVS parking lot on Lake Tahoe Boulevard minutes later and taken into custody without incident.
The suspects have been identified as 28-year-old Joshua Edde of Cameron Park, California and 33-year-old Andrew Perez and 53-year-old Gerald Perez, both of South Lake Tahoe.
Police say one of the suspects was treated for injuries he sustained during the physical altercation during the attempted robbery.
All the suspects were booked on attempted robbery and first-degree burglary charges.
It's lot clear if they have lawyers or will be appointed one.
