POINT LOMA (CNS) - A group of men broke into an Ocean Beach home early Thursday and stole electronics and medical marijuana at gunpoint before two were arrested nearby and the rest apparently holed up in a Point Loma house for several hours, police said.
The home invasion robbery in the 4900 block of Santa Cruz Avenue was reported just before 2:20 a.m., according to San Diego police Officer Frank Cali.
A short time later, officers arrested two of the suspected thieves and learned the rest might be holed up in a house in the 2400 block of Chatsworth
Boulevard, he said, adding officers surrounded the residence.
At about 6:30 a.m., two suspects came out of the house and were placed in handcuffs, Cali said.
A short time later, police began clearing the scene after determining there were no more suspects.
