Robbers Learn Hard Lesson About Bear Mace

A pair of Siskiyou County home invasion robbers got a taste of their own weapon. Early on December 27th two men kicked in the door of a Hornbrook home and used bear mace on the victim, then started kicking the man while he was down. They had to retreat outside because the bear mace affected them too. That allowed the resident to flee while the robbers packed up some of his things and left. Deputies say they found the suspects’ pickup nearby and arrested Steven Ferea and Corey Boatman.
