Two people have been taken in custody after an alleged car jacking in Oroville that sent one man to the hospital. 27-year-old Cody Bowles and 31-year-old Lucia Ripley were arrested around 9:30 Friday evening after Butte County Sheriff's deputies got word that the suspects were in Biggs.
The incident happened on February 12th when Cameron Ashbury and his father were loading their truck with supplies during the manditory evacuation from the Oroville area. Their truck was reported running when Bowles and Ripley allegedly entered the truck and took off. Ashbury was reportedly hit by the truck while attempting to stop the suspects. He was taken to a local hospital with serious injuries.
