AGUA CDALIENTE – On the afternoon of August 25th deputies with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Officer were called to the 400 block of W. Agua Caliente Road on the report that a man was there with a gun.
As the story developed, deputies discovered that a marijuana sale had been arranged on Snapchat and that this was the agreed-upon location for the sale.
The victim gave the marijuana to the suspect, 18-year-old Guillermo Hurtado, accompanied by two of his friends.
Hurtado apparently thought that displaying the handgun in his waistband would suffice as payment for the drugs. Soon all four were engaged in a fight in which the victim lost as he was punched, kicked and hit on the back of his head with a gun.
Hurtado drove away and the other two ran away. The victim identified a 16-year-old suspect as the one who hit him on the head.
The 16-year-old suspect is known to authorities and on probation, a fact that allows them to search his home.
Deputies went to the 16-year-old suspect’s home and found him there, taking him to “the Valley Substation for an interview.”
For his part, Hurtado was spotted driving his Prius and summarily arrested and also taken to the Valley Substation.
However, it didn’t end yet. The 16-year-old suspect “became argumentative as the deputy tried to place handcuffs on him.” The juvenile ran away, jumped a fence and was soon gone.
A helpful passerby informed deputies that the suspect was in a house in the 19000 block of Quigley Lane in El Verano. That is hwere deputies discovered him, again, this time hiding under a bed in an RV. He was arrested.
Hurtado was booked for felony robbery and conspiracy, held on a $100,000 bail. The 16-year-old was booked at juvenile hall for felony robbery, conspiracy and two escape charges.
