Statesman staffDecember 6, 2013 

Two suspects were in the Canyon County Jail on Friday after two men said they were robbed at a party in Caldwell.

Caldwell police said they went to a parking lot at 6th Avenue and Blaine Street at around 9 p.m. Thursday to meet with two men who were reporting a robbery.

The two men told officers that they went to a home in the 100 block of West Belmont Street to attend a party. They said they were robbed at gunpoint by two men when they entered the home.

After taking cash, a cellphone, a watch and stereo speakers from the car of one of the victims, the suspects told both victims to leave the house and warned them not to notify law enforcement. Neither victim was hurt.

Officers went to the home, where they detained eight men there and said they found a shotgun and three handguns. Austin Leroy, 19, of Caldwell and Isaiah Zuniga, 19, of Greenleaf were arrested.

More arrests are possible as the investigation continues, police said.
