By Lt. John VanderKlugt, Antioch Police Field Services Bureau

On Tuesday, January 19, 2016 at approximately 6:55 pm Officers responded to a residence in the 4000 block of Banbury Way on the report of a disturbance. Upon arrival they contacted the resident, Loc Ly, a 41-year-old Antioch resident, who advised that he had just been the victim of a home invasion robbery. Officers further learned that the 4-5 black male adult suspects were interested in stealing the marijuana plants growing within the residence.

Officers received consent to enter the residence and discovered 492 marijuana plants growing inside. As no evidence could be located to suggest the plants were possessed for medicinal purposes, Loc Ly was taken into custody on cultivation charges and the plants were collected as evidence.

This incident is still under investigation. Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to contact the Antioch Police Dept. at (925) 778-2441. You may text a tip to 274637 (CRIMES) using the key word ANTIOCH.
