CHICO, Calif. -

Several people were held at gunpoint Monday morning after five suspects robbed a marijuana site.

The Butte County Sheriff's Office received a report of the robbery at 2:45a.m. on Centerville Road in Chico.

Officials said the people living on the property were camping and growing marijuana. Four men and one woman allegedly trespassed onto the property, bound the marijuana growers, and stole an unknown amount of plants.

The suspects took off in two vehicles, the one they arrived in and a green 1998 Toyota 4-Runner that they stole from one of the victims who lived there.

The case is still under investigation and police are still searching for all of the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Butte County Sheriff's Office at 530-538-7321.
