At approximately 4:30am this morning our office received a report of a directed (not random) home robbery having taken place in eastern Sierra County. There were no injuries reported but there were several weapons and ammunition stolen from the residence. We do have a person of interest that we are attempting to locate and notifications have been made to surrounding agencies to BOLO for this subject. This is still a very active investigation and no further information is being released at this time.
