Camptonville market robbers still in the area

Three men who robbed the Lost Nugget Market in Camptonville at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon are still at large and may still be in the area, said the Yuba County Undersheriff Wednesday.

The men are described to be in their late teens, all with black hair and brown eyes, driving a light blue Chevrolet Astro minivan.

“They were last seen southbound on Highway 49,” said Yuba County Undersheriff Steve Durfor. “We are monitering the highway and the surrounding area.”

The men used an automatic handgun to take an undisclosed amount of money from the store owner.

No one was hurt in the robbery, Durfor said.
