A Magalia man says that two men with firearms came into his residence and restrained him with zip-ties and stole several pounds of marijuana.

According to the Butte County Sheriff’s Office, this happened about 11 p.m., Friday in the 6000 block of Elmwood Drive in Magalia.
Deputies say that the victim was able to cut the zip-ties and escape his residence in order to contact the sheriff’s office, but when deputies arrived, the suspects already fled the scene.

The suspects are described as:
• Two males
• White or Hispanic
• Wearing dark clothing
• Masks covering their faces
• Armed with a shotgun and handgun

The Butte County Sheriff’s Office is aware that possessing marijuana is legal over the age of 21, but warns that people should be careful of who they show their marijuana to.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Butte County Sheriff’s Office at (530)-538-7321.

Dense fog has developed across parts of northern California Monday morning and the potential for light showers will return today. We'll dry out and warm up on Tuesday, but more cool and wet weather is expected mid week. A more substantial wet system is currently projected to move into our region this weekend.
