Three Arrested in Connection with Burglary


Farfield police arrested one man and two juveniles this afternon after allegedly burglarizing a residence.

At about 12:05 p.m., Fairfield police were called out to a residence in the 800 block of Tabor Avenue.

“A resident contacted the Fairfield Police Department to report that she had just returned home and discovered that her house had been burglarized,” stated Fairfield Police Officer Kathryn McCormick. “Fairfield Police Department officers responded to her residence to ensure that there were no other subjects hiding within the residence.”

McCormick added that while on scene, Fairfield Police Dispatch received a call from a second person who stated that she believed someone had burglarized Sullivan Middle School.

“The caller advised that she had witnessed two subjects lifting a safe over the fence at the school,” McCormick stated. “Officer Shafer, who was responding to that call, recognized that Sullivan Middle School was directly behind the 800 block of Tabor Avenue address. Based on this information, officers were able to determine that the safe the caller witnessed being lifted over the fence, was stolen from the residence on Tabor Avenue.

According to McCormick, the second caller was able to provide dispatch with a description of the suspects as well as the vehicle that she had seen them leave the area in. The vehicle description was then broadcast to officers responding to the area as well as the California Highway Patrol. 

“CHP officers located the vehicle in Vacaville and conducted a traffic enforcement stop,” McCormick stated. “The driver and two passengers were contacted. “

McCormick added, the second caller was able to identify all three suspects. In addition, officers identified items located in the vehicle as those that had been stolen from the residence on Tabor Avenue.

The other two suspects, both 16-year-old males and Fairfield residents, were arrested and booked into Solano County Juvenile Hall on charges of burglary and conspiracy to commit a crime.
