Briefs: Home invaded by masked man
A masked man burst into an Olivehurst home with a shotgun early Tuesday, made several threats and struggled with one person inside before fleeing, the Yuba County Sheriff's Department reported.
No one was hurt.
Resident John Wyatt told deputies the man threatened and struggled with Benny Mateo, a house guest, around 1:30 a.m. at Wyatt's home in the 2300 block of Mage Avenue in Olivehurst.
"The suspect is believed to be a relative of Wyatt's and is currently being sought," Undersheriff Jerry Read said.
Read declined to elaborate on the intruder's identity and had no comment on possible motives for the attack.
Anyone with information is asked to call the department at 749-7777.
Brothers jailed and released
Two Sacramento brothers were jailed earlier this week after police found two stolen handguns and six grams of marijuana inside their broken-down car, authorities said.
Antoni J. Stagg, 23, and Macdante D. Stagg, 20, were arrested Sunday after Wheatland officers found a 9mm semi-automatic handgun and Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum, both reported stolen in Sacramento, Police Chief Allyn Wightman said.
An officer spotted a group of people waiting for a tow truck near Second Street and Highway 65.
"Officers smelled the odor of marijuana and subsequently found (the weapons,)" Wightman said.
Both men were booked into the Yuba County Jail on suspicion of receiving stolen property.
Each man posted $11,000 bail bonds and the pair was released Monday.
Court dates were not available.
