Marijuana is believed to have been the target of a Yuba County home invasion robbery that left two men with serious injuries early Saturday.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to the 5400 block of Northridge Way in Loma Rica about 12:22 a.m. after receiving a 911 call reporting that a robbery was underway and shots had been fired, according to a Yuba County Sheriff’s Office news release.
When deputies arrived, they found two suspects in the driveway with a U-Haul van and a third suspect was located inside the residence. All three were detained and later arrested.
Deputies found five victims at the residence, three women who were not injured and two men who had suffered serious head injuries. The injuries were believed to have been caused by blunt force, not gunshots, the news release said.

The injured men were transported to separate hospitals.
While authorities were inside the residence, they located a large quantity of marijuana, the news release said.
Arrested were David Rojas, 23, Ramona Ramirez, 48, and Rosendo Lopez, 48, all of Santa Rosa. All three were booked into the Yuba County jail on suspicion of attempted murder, criminal conspiracy, robbery, criminal threats and assault with a firearm, with bail set at $500,000.
Two other men are being sought. They are described as Hispanic, 30 to 40 years old, both with heavy builds and short black hair. One had a mustache and the other had a slight beard. They are believed to have initially left the home on foot, the news release said.
