VALLEY CENTER (CNS) - Two masked men armed with pistols barged into a North County family's home Monday and robbed them of cash and a pickup truck.
The thieves entered the house in the 9400 block of Lilac Walk Road in Valley Center through the unlocked front door about 6:30 a.m. and confronted the residents, sheriff's Sgt. Robert Bishop said.
The bandits demanded that the victims -- a couple and their 17-year-old son -- hand over money, and the family gave them a small amount of cash, according to Bishop. The robbers then stole the keys to the victims' black 2002 Toyota Tundra and drove off in it.
The Missouri license plate number of the truck, which has no tailgate, is 6ML943.
Authorities asked anyone spotting the stolen pickup to call the Valley Center Sheriff's Station at (760) 751-4400.
