Man robbed at gunpoint in his home
Two felons arrested following investigation
HESPERIA • Two felons are in jail for holding a man at gunpoint in his Hesperia home and stealing electronics before fleeing the scene, San Bernardino County Sheriff's officials said Tuesday.
The victim called 911 just before 9 p.m. Sunday night and said two people broke into his home in the 14000 block of El Centro Street. The victim said the robbers threatened to kill him and demanded he give them cash. When they couldn’t find any money, the victim told authorities they stole several electronic items and left. The victim wasn’t injured.
Hesperia deputies launched an investigation and identified the suspects as Tiffany Brown, 22, and Sammy Romo, 27, both of Victorville.
Detectives served a search warrant at their home in the 10300 block of Wellington Drive on Monday afternoon. Though Brown and Romo weren’t home, detectives said they found evidence linking them to the home invasion robbery.
As he was leaving the area, Detective Mark Smith saw the suspects drive by. Brown and Romo then turned around and drove away from the Wellington Drive home.
Smith followed the suspects onto southbound Interstate 15, where he and fellow Hesperia deputies stopped the car at Oak Hill Road. Deputies arrested Brown and Romo without incident.
Brown was booked at Victor Valley Jail for residential robbery and she’s being held without bail. She is also being held on a fugitive no-bail warrant out of Nevada, and court records show she has a prior theft conviction in San Bernardino County when she was 18 years old.
Romo was arrested and booked at Victor Valley Jail for residential robbery without bail. He is also being held on a $50,000 warrant for a prior drunk-driving incident, and court records show he has a prior vandalism conviction and a slew of driving violations over the past seven years.
Anyone with information on this crime is asked to contact Detective Paul Bader with the Hesperia sheriff’s station at (760) 947-1500 or call WeTip at (800) 782-7463.
