SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Seven robbers invaded a Central California house used by pot growers and engaged the occupants in a gun battle that killed two of the attackers, while some of their accomplices briefly kidnapped a 15-year-old girl, police said on Friday.

Authorities have arrested three of the suspected robbers from the attack on the home on Thursday in a rural farming community near Fresno, and police said they are investigating whether to bring charges against the marijuana growers.

The robbery illustrates the dangers associated with large-scale marijuana operations, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims told a news conference. Medical marijuana is allowed in California, but authorities said it was not immediately clear if the house was used to grow pot for that market.

The heavily armed robbers falsely identified themselves as U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration agents when they came to the house, where two adults and four children lived among about 170 marijuana plants, Mims said.

The robbers kicked in the door and were met by the armed occupants, who engaged in a deadly gun fight with the robbers, police said.

One of the suspected robbers, whose name has not been released, was hit by multiple rounds and police found him wounded at the property, said Fresno County Sheriff's spokesman Deputy Chris Curtice. He later died at a hospital, Curtice said.

The six other robbers fled in two cars, with one group bringing with them a 15-year-old girl they took hostage from the house, police said.

The teenager was dropped off unharmed a short time later in Fresno, and investigators were still looking for the three suspects from that getaway vehicle, police said.

Fresno County sheriff’s deputies followed the robbers' other car to a hospital where they arrested Sergio Eduardo Hernandez, 23, of San Bernardino, and Chi Tsair Tang, 31, of Madera, police said.

The two men were booked on charges of attempted murder, home invasion robbery, kidnapping, evading a police officer and committing a felony while armed, according to the website for the Fresno County Sheriff's Office.

A wounded man was found inside the car with Hernandez and Tang still wearing his ski mask, police said. The man, whose name was not released, was brought into the hospital where he later died.

Its a sign of the current times...all over the world, but with these growers looks like they were expecting company too...?
meaning you will still need weaponry even if you grow legal...? so whats the point of being legal, many Americans are expecting the Republicans to do a U turn once they get back in... on Cannabis, the difference this time, the police will have your full details ..?

Wow...I have no sympathy for the Douche Nozzles that got killed. If someone kicks your door in to rob you well they deserve to be worm food.

I'd love to know how old that article is...as of May 14 2014 it's illegal to grow in Fresno..

Fresno city
Fresno City Council voted to enact a total ban on marijuana grows on March 20, 2014. Read more. Also see: Fresno council committee formed to review marijuana growing Read more.

This really impacted a few fellow growers I know in that area...

Banks are legal...they get robbed too. Same thing.

I am glad they got shot..I only wish they got them all.

The Fresno County/City mmj ban is going through the courts as we speak. The ACLU is helping with that fight. It is NOT illegal to grow in Fresno, you will NOT be charged with cultivation. You WILL be charged with violating a County/City ordnance, which includes fines and jail time.

Bottom line the growers were lucky in reality the robbers were amateurs, if it was organized crime group like MS13 or Hells A or who ever they would of ended up taking all the goods thats the problem these days organized crime have the means for top end weapons

Bottom line is Dr. Fever. Any person or organization that breaks in to rob me will meet the same fate. They will be introduced to Mr. Ruger and he does not care who or what you are. He is there to protect me and inflict pain.

They may mean business, but like most people, they do not want to die. Especially by meeting Mr. Ruger. They also most likely would not want to meet Mr. Rogers either.

I always make sure everyone in the house knows how to get to my guns. There's so many tweakers breaking in up here in Wa state that paranoia be damned, I am armed, not because of the MJ growing on my property, but for the bare fact that these ppl (career criminals in general) are parasites that care only about themselves.

"Suffer not a thief to live" is my mantra. Plus it helps that my two large breed pups do not like strangers unless introduced first.

What sucks now that I'm legal, I do not know if I can reup my CPL next time. Sadface.

Just because it was MJ doesn't mean it was legal.
Those homeowners were not having a bible study just after feeding the homeless.
The area is a ghetto where thugs and drugs prevail.
The real problem is the liberal American Government whom pumps in these drugs and thugs to gain the liberal vote and sooner gain socialist control.
