According to the Orange County Register, five men have been accused with robbing a former mortgage lender at his Newport Coast mansion on December 8, 2009. One was arraigned on December 11, 2009. Two posted bail and were arraigned on January 26, 2010, and warrants have been issued for the other two suspects.

Each suspect has been charged with one felony count of conspiracy to commit robbery, two felony counts of kidnapping to commit robbery, five felony counts of first degree robbery in concert, and six felony counts of assault with a firearm.

According to prosecutors, the five men met up at a grocery store parking lot before the robbery. Then, three of the men went inside the house, tied up the houseguests, and pistol-whipped at least two of them; a third went to the hospital for his injuries.

The robbers grabbed watches, wallets, cell phones, cash, and other valuables.

A man, who was in the back yard at the time, called police on his cell phone.
As police came, the three men ran off.

If convicted on all counts, the defendants face a sentence of life in state prison.
