COLUSA – The homeowner held the would-be burglar at gunpoint until deputies arrived. A burglary-in-progress call came in to the CCSO on May 31 at 11:30 am.

When authorities arrived at 4301 Sites Lodoga Road they saw that the homeowner had the situation in hand. Then they took over the situation.

Suspect #1

45-year-old Redwood City resident Joshua Allen Jorgensen Villanueva probably did not see this coming. The resident had been gone for two days. When he returned he noticed a motorcycle parked outside of his garage. Noises came from inside his house.

While a neighbor called the CCSO, the resident “utilized a legal, registered handgun” to “confront the suspects.” The duo carried some property belonging to the resident as they walked out.

Suspect #2

28-year-old Victoria Elizabeth Edlin ran into a nearby orchard “a few hundred yards southeast of the residence.”  Edlin hails from Kennesaw, Georgia. Deputies soon arrested her.

The resident fired two warning shots, enough to persuade Villanueva to lay down and wait for the CCSO. His charges are vandalism, burglary and theft of a vehicle. His bail is $80,000.

Edlin’s charges and bail are the same.  She also has two Solano County warrants for her arrest.

The press release says, “The investigation is on-going. If anyone has information regarding this incident please contact the Sheriff’s Office at (530) 458-0200.”
