Jackson County Sheriff's Office Detectives are asking the public for help in identifying suspects from a weekend robbery in White City.

In the early hours of Saturday, March 23rd, JCSO deputies responded to a 911 report of a "strong-arm robbery" on the 3200-block of Dodge Road. Detectives say it happened at a property where cannabis production is taking place. The residents were restrained by at least two men, according to authorities.

The suspects reportedly stole property from the residence and fled in a car before JCSO deputies arrived. They are describes as white men, possibly Hispanic, approximately six feet tall, and wearing dark clothing and tactical gear at the time of the robbery.

Detectives believe that the location was specifically targeted for the crime, and that there is no apparent threat to the general public. Little information is available at this time due to the ongoing investigation.

JCSO Detectives would like to hear from anyone who witnessed "suspicious activity in the area before or after the incident, as well as anyone who may have information relevant to the case."

Tips can be directed to Sergeant Jesse Ainsworth at (541) 774-6816. Refer to case # 19-5730.
