Man enters plea in home-invasion robbery that ended in shooting

By From page A4 | April 05, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A 26-year-old Fairfield man accused of joining three other men in Dec. 18 home-invasion robbery in rural Vacaville pleaded not guilty Friday to three charges of armed robbery.

Kyle M. Amos, an ex-con on parole at the time of the heist, was arrested last week. He was ordered to return to court April 18 in front of Judge Robert Bowers for a probable cause hearing. Amos is in jail with bail set at $660,000.

Sheriff’s deputies believe Amos and his companions broke into a home, tied up five people and beat two of them while demanding some of their belongings. A struggle occurred during the robbery and a 31-year-old man was shot twice before the four men fled the home.

The robbers left behind more than $570,000 worth of marijuana that was in the house. Sheriff’s deputies, after seizing the marijuana, refused to say that the bounty was the intended target of the robbery.

The three other suspects remain at-large.
