TCSO: Armed Robbers Hold Wrong Family At Gunpoint

A home invasion robbery in Gerber was apparently done by mistake. Tehama County Deputies were called at 4AM Saturday to Proberta Road and San Benito Avenue. A family of seven was asleep when the robbers came in. Several adults in the home were beaten, bound and held at gunpoint by at least three men demanding money. Eventually they figured out they were in the wrong house, and they went next door. There was only one person in that house. After breaking a window to get in, the robbers held the resident at gunpoint and took some belongings before fleeing. The Sheriff’s Office is looking for surveillance footage from anyone on San Benito Avenue.
