Armed Home Invasion Trial for Acquitted Murder Suspect and Accomplice Set for January

SAN PABLO, Calif. – Two West Contra Costa residents, Anthony Timmons and Kameron Wilson, are facing trial for their alleged involvement in an armed home invasion robbery. Timmons, who was previously acquitted of murder in May, and Wilson have been charged with first-degree residential robbery and gun possession in connection with a robbery at a San Pablo home on Van Ness Street.

Timmons was also charged with assault with a semiautomatic firearm for allegedly pointing a gun at one of the victims and asking Wilson, “Do you want me to shoot them?” The incident resulted in the victims being robbed of cash, Honduran currency, and gold jewelry on Oct. 7.

The defendants are scheduled to go on trial on Jan. 8. According to court records, when police searched a vehicle containing Timmons, Wilson, and a third individual the day after the robbery, they discovered several items belonging to the victims, as well as 20 MDMA tabs, roughly two ounces of suspected fentanyl, and a firearm.

Moreover, the vehicle was implicated in an earlier theft at a Safeway in Castro Valley, where approximately $2,600 in liquor was stolen. Timmons’ arrest came just five months after his release from jail, where he had spent the previous seven years awaiting murder charges for the killing of a 66-year-old man in 2015. His co-defendant, Antoine Saucer, was convicted of both murders in a separate, earlier trial and sentenced to life in prison.

As the case remains pending, both Timmons and Wilson are currently in jail. This latest development comes after Timmons’ previous acquittal following an extended period of incarceration as he awaited trial for the 2015 murder.
