Armed Robbery Suspects Enter House in Lake of the Woods

FRAZIER PARK; Jan. 16, 6:35 a.m. — On Tuesday, Jan. 15 at approximately 4:00 p.m. deputies from the Frazier Park Sheriff’s Substation were dispatched to an address in Lake of the Woods responding to the report of a residential robbery by a suspect armed with a knife.  Arriving deputies made contact with the Reporting Party who said two suspects entered the residence one armed with a knife and the other armed with a gun. The Reporting Party was able to get away from the secluded residence to call 9-1-1. The two suspects made threats towards and controlled the movements of the five occupants in the house. As deputies set up a perimeter on the residence, two of the occupants (victims) were able to leave the house. Deputies attempted to make contact at the front door and were able to get the other three (victims) out of the house without incident.

Deputies were told the suspects were hiding in the house. The suspects were given verbal orders to come out of the house but refused.  Approximately fifteen minutes later both suspects exited the house and were taken into custody.

Casey Wayde Eaton 36 years old was booked into the Kern County Jail for Burglary, False Imprisonment, Criminal Threats, Brandishing a Firearm and Felon in Possession of a Firearm. Bail was set at $177,500.00.

A 16 years old Juvenile was booked into Juvenile Hall for Burgalry, False Imprisonment, Criminal Threats and Brandishing a Knife.
