CHICO, Calif. - Chico police officers on coffee break ended up arresting three suspects on suspicion of a home invasion robbery they say happened just minutes earlier. 

Police said the incident happened around 3:24 a.m. Monday at the Donut Nook on East Ave. According to the news release, officers were enjoying a cup of coffee in the Donut Nook parking lot when they heard and saw a suspect, later identified as Shayla Robins-Bailey drop a nacotic paraphernalia on the parking lot.

The three suspects, identified as Shayla Robins-Bailey, Matthew Considine, and Joseph Lawrence, were contacted by officers and a narcotics investigation was initiated. 

Officers said during their investigation, passenger Considine had in his possession a concealed and loaded semi-automatic firearm, tucked in his front waistband. They added, Considine is a convicted felon.

The vehicle the suspects arrived in was then searched. Two additional semi-automatic firearms, narcotics, narcotics paraphernalia, narcotics packaging material and U.S. currency were all found inside the car, according to the police report.

15 minutes into the investigation, Chico Police Department's dispatch received a call from a victim reporting he was just robbed inside his home. The victim stated he was asleep, when he was suddenly awoken by two males known to him as Matthew Considine and Joseph Lawrence.

According to the police, the suspects brandished firearms at the victim, demanded money, pistol whipped the victim causing injury to his face and told the victim they would kill him if he contacted the police.

Considine and Lawrence left with the victim’s wallet, cell phone and cash. All three items were found by officers inside the suspect’s vehicle at Donut Nook.

The victim, after he was contacted by police, was taken by a family member to Enloe Medical Center for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.

According to police, all three suspects were arrested and booked into the Butte County Jail on multiple felony and misdemeanor charges.
