Law enforcement is on the lookout this evening for two vehicles occupied by a total of four armed men who are sought for their alleged role in a Laytonville robbery.

An officer safety bulletin came over the police scanner around 6:20 p.m. stating that four Hispanic males with “multiple firearms” fled the alleged robbery in a silver Ford F-250 and a white Jeep last seen driving south on Highway 101.

The truck reportedly had Texas plates and the Jeep is said to be either a Wrangler or a Rubicon.

The robbery reportedly occurred around 5:30 p.m. and the suspects were said to carry “multiple firearms.”

The Officer Safety Bulletin was directed to agencies in the county’s southern reach out of concern the assailants were heading towards the area.

The details around the robbery itself are unknown at this point.
