3 booked for attempted home invasion robbery in Meyers


SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Officials arrested three people this weekend for a home invasion robbery attempt in South Lake Tahoe.

The El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office responded at about 4:34 a.m. Saturday morning to a report of a home invasion robbery that occurred at a residence in Meyers.

Officials said two suspects entered a residence and attempted to conduct a robbery while using violence.

A police report said the residents resisted and “there were physical conflicts” between the two or three residents and both suspects.

Officials said the suspects fled the scene in a vehicle driven by a third party.

Authorities broadcast a “Be On The Lookout” and the suspect vehicle was quickly located at 4:41 a.m. in the CVS parking lot on Lake Tahoe Blvd.

The suspects, Joshua Edde, 28, Andrew Perez, 33, and Gerald Perez, 53, were taken into custody without incident and booked into jail.

One of the suspects was treated for injuries he sustained during the physical altercation during the attempted robbery.

All the suspects were booked on attempted robbery and first degree burglary charges. Each charge carries a $100,000 bail. Two of the suspects, Edde and Gerald Perez, were booked for an additional enhancement of $45,000 due to being arrested while out on bail and possibly face longer sentences if found guilty.
