“We hope everyone had a great Christmas and holiday season spent with family and friends. To round out the New Year’s week, we would like to cover some of the progress we have made against the criminal element out there.
Firearm Related Arrests
On the afternoon of December 28th, 2019 a concerned citizen called in to report a suspicious vehicle parked in the 5000 block of Lockie Lane. Officers responded and located the vehicle along with three occupants. Through the officers’ investigation, they ultimately conducted a search of the individuals and the vehicle. The search revealed a loaded Glock handgun and a replica handgun made to look like a Beretta handgun.
Based on the evidence two of the three individuals were arrested for firearms related offenses. These two individuals were identified as Jalonnie Abesamis (21 years of age from Fairfield) and Arthur Tuttle (20 years of age from Suisun City).
Just under an hour into New Year’s Day, officers were sent to a potential burglary in progress at a business in the 2800 block of Waterman Blvd. When officers arrived at the business they were able to determine a burglary had occurred based on damage to a window. Officers were assisted by a citizen witness who saw a subject on the property, who had not left.
A police K9 was called to assist and began a search of the business property for the potential suspect. The burglar was located and apprehended by the K9 while he was hiding in bushes on the property. After obtaining medical clearance at the hospital, James Eugene Holte (45 years of age from Fairfield) was booked into the jail. Holte was arrested for a violation of burglary, assault on an officer and a violation of his Sacramento County Probation (burglary offense).
Firearms and Drug Arrest
On the afternoon of New Year’s Day, a patrol officer was conducting a security check of the businesses located in the 2500 block of N Texas St. While there, the officer observed an occupied vehicle parked in the parking lot for a period of time. Based on prior criminal activity, the officer was concerned the subjects may be looking for vehicles to burglarize.
When the subjects finally left in the vehicle, the officer attempted an enforcement stop to investigate further. The driver failed to stop for a short distance at which time the passenger discarded a firearm out of the window. Upon finally stopping, the two occupants were detained and a further search was conducted. In all a revolver, ammunition, suspected cocaine, heroin and methamphetamine were recovered.
The driver, Dwayne Pearson (37 years of age from Fairfield) was arrested on charges to include possession of a controlled substance, possession of paraphernalia, providing a false name and driving on a suspended license. Pearson additionally had three separate outstanding arrest warrants for various offenses.
The passenger Stanley Jackson (63 years of age from Fairfield) was arrested on charges to include possession of a loaded firearm, possession of a firearm/ammunition by a felon or restricted person, and possession of controlled substances. Jackson also had an outstanding arrest warrant based on the violation of his Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS).
We hope you notice the work illustrated above may have been accomplished by our fine officers, but much of it would not have been possible without the public’s help. Please keep calling in and we will continue responding.”
