 SANTA ROSA – According to a community bulletin issued by the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office on Wednesday, April 20th, Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) Deputies heard Santa Rosa Police Department (SRPD) responding to a report of an armed robbery just before 4:30 pm on Tuesday, April 19th. SCSO Deputies also went into the area to assist in the search for suspects described as two men and a woman with long dark hair.

A victim was reported to be held-up and robbed at gunpoint at a hotel on Corby Road in Santa Rosa. Approximately eight minutes later, SRPD Officers went into the hotel room when a dark sedan drove out of the parking lot. The vehicle approached toward the SCSO Deputies who observed two men in the front and a woman with long, dark hair seated in the back. The patrol unit made a u-turn and stopped the car near railroad tracks.

The driver was ordered out of the car and searched for weapons. Hidden in his pants was a loaded pistol. He was also carrying a concealed switchblade, brass knuckles, and a tear gas canister. Next to where he had been seated in the car was additional ammunition, a ski mask and a holster for the pistol. Also found were syringes, a spoon, a small scale and a meth pipe.

The female passenger was also detained and was discovered to be carrying heroin and methamphetamine. The other man in the vehicle had a felony ‘no bail’ warrant from another county for possession of a controlled substance for sale and a violation of probation.

The driver was identified as 30-year-old Nicolas Hayes from Santa Rosa. He was arrested and booked for being a felon in possession of a firearm, a felon in possession of ammunition and a felon in possession of pepper spray. He later posted the $30,000 bail and is to appear in court on April 25th at 8:30.

Also identified was 39-year-old Amber Glenn of Santa Rosa. She was arrested and booked for possession of controlled substances. She was released on a promise to appear at the same date and time as Hayes.

Robert Carroll, a 50-year-old transient was arrested for his outstanding felony warrant. He remains in custody.

None of these individuals were identified as the suspects from the armed robbery.
