A suspect wearing a ski mask allegedly brandished a firearm at the 72-year-old homeowner and demanded marijuana. After a struggle, the suspects fled with a large glass jar containing the marijuana, Eland said. The homeowner was not injured.

A police officer in the area saw the fleeing vehicle and officers stopped the car occupied by the five suspects and recovered the marijuana, Eland said.

The three Healdsburg juveniles, ages 16 and 17, and Salvador Morelos Jr. and Jose Arroyo-Flores, both 19-year-old Healdsburg residents, were arrested on suspicion of robbery, burglary, elder abuse and brandishing a weapon, police said.
