On Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at 7:00 p.m., Cody Shane Wallace (20 years-old) of Cottonwood, reported being robbed and assaulted at gunpoint at the TA Truck Stop and Travel Center located at 19483 Knighton Road, Redding. Wallace left the TA Truck Stop and reported the incident from a residence located in the City of Anderson.
Upon making contact with Wallace and his girlfriend, Kaylee Corrine Potter, who witnessed the incident, it was discovered Wallace communicated and made plans to meet Suspect #1, to purchase one-half ounce of marijuana for $300.00 cash. On 09/20/17 at approximately 5 pm, Wallace and Potter met with Suspect #1 and another subject, Suspect #2 in the parking lot of the TA Tuck Stop to make the transaction. As Wallace was counting cash from his wallet, Suspect #1 demanded Wallace give him all of the cash in his possession while brandishing a black semi-automatic handgun, pointing within inches of Wallace’s face. When Wallace refused to give his money to Suspect #1, Suspect #2 walked up to Wallace striking him once to the side of his head with fist, causing Wallace to lose consciousness. Potter was able to grab Wallace by his shirt and pull him into their vehicle and drive away from the area away, and from the suspects. The Suspects drove away with Wallace’s money in an unknown type white 4-door sedan with a black spoiler. Wallace and Potter drove to Potter’s residence in the City of Anderson and waited hours before reporting the incident due to the fear of suspects and facing possible charges for attempting to purchase marijuana.
Suspect #1 is described as a black male adult, approximately 19 years-old, 6’01” tall, 160 lbs, black hair, wearing a black t-shirt and tan pants.
Suspect #2 is described as a black male adult, approximately 18 years-old, 6’00” tall, 165 lbs, black hair with “dreadlocks”
Both suspects are wanted for the charges of 211 PC Robbery, 243(d) PC Battery with Serious Bodily Injury, and 422 PC Terrorist Threats.
The suspects are considered armed and dangerous. If the public comes in contact with or has information concerning the suspects they are urged not to approach them, but instead call the Shasta County Sheriff’s Office or Shascom (530)245-6540 to make a report.
