Four Stanislaus County Men Tied To Sonora Home Invasion

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — The Sonora Police Department, while working with the Modesto PD, was able to crack a home invasion case that occurred back in September of 2021 in the Myers Hill area.

An 82-year-old woman and her daughter had recently moved into a home and hired a crew out of Stanislaus County to move the belongings. Soon after, the homeowners were awoken by four masked men with a firearm who broke into their home. The victims were tied up and forced to give the combination to a safe. The suspects took about $100,000 worth of personal property (click here to read an earlier story).

The investigation later uncovered that one of the suspects was a member of the earlier moving crew. The four suspects, three of which were already now in prison, pled guilty to the crime, as part of a plea deal related to other offenses.

They are 25-year-old Rickey Auelua, 25-year-old Johnathan Bachman, 20-year-old Gabriel Cordero, and 18-year-old Manuel Reymundo Jr., all of Stanislaus County.

The investigation included executing various search warrants.
