A Chico man suspected of breaking into a home and holding the residents at gunpoint has been arrested two weeks after the alleged robbery.
Deshawn Dean, 20 of Chico, was arrested by the Chico Police Department Gang Unit Tuesday night on suspicion of robbery and drug possession.
Police say Dean, and several others, broke into a home on the 1200 block of Ivy Street in the early morning hours of October 6.
One of the robbers allegedly held the residents at gunpoint while the others stole items from the house.
By the time police arrived all the alleged robbers had fled the area.
The gang unit contacted Dean on an unrelated incident Tuesday and reportedly found evidence he was involved in the robbery.
Police say the investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to call the Chico Police Department.
