Fairfield Man Arrested for Gun Possession after Routine Traffic Stop
Just after midnight on December 30, 2015, Fairfield Police officer Zack Sandoval discovered a loaded gun after making a routine traffic stop, according to authorities.
Officer Sandoval was patrolling the North Texas Street area of Fairfield and spotted a vehicle traveling on the roadway with a headlight out. He pulled the vehicle over in the 2700 Block of North Texas Street.
The driver, a 17-year-old male Fairfield resident, was found to be driving on a suspended license and on probation with search and seizure terms. He and the other occupant of the car were ordered to vacate the vehicle so that it could be searched and towed.
The passenger, Gerardo Gomez (21) of Suisun City, exited the car a little too slowly. When Fairfield police officers began a routine pat down for weapons, Gomez admitted that he had a loaded gun in his waistband. Officers removed the 9mm semi-automatic handgun from Gomez’s waistband and discovered the serial numbers had been filed off.
The driver was issued a citation for his violations. Gomez was arrested for Possession of a Concealed Loaded Firearm and Possession of a Firearm with an Obliterated Serial Number. He was booked into Solano County Jail with bail set at $15,000.
