On August 19 at around 8:06 pm, dispatch received calls regarding a shooting that had just taken place in the parking lot of a business located in the 2000 block of Cadenasso Drive. nnUpon arrival, officers found a polymer 80 handgun in one location in the parking lot, an extended magazine, and fired as well as live ammunition in two separate locations in the parking lot. nnOfficers reviewed surveillance footage, which appeared to show two individuals engage in conversation before there is gunfire and both parties flee to separate vehicles before exiting the parking lot. nnShortly after this discovery, officers learned a gun shot victim, a 21-year-old Fairfield resident, had just walked into the emergency room of a local hospital with non-life threatening gunshot wounds to his hand, groin, and abdomen. Based upon the surveillance footage and vehicle information entered into FLOCK, officers were able to connect the individual to the subject incident.nnAt this time, this appears to be an isolated event and unrelated to the businesses at the incident location. Due to the ongoing investigation, however, no further information will be released at this time. Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Fairfield Police Department’s Investigations Bureau at (707) 428-7600.
Customs and Border Protection officials say that more than 1.1 million fentanyl pills were seized in the beginning of August 2022. nnOn Tuesday, Border Patrol agents seized a vehicle that contained more than 250,000 fentanyl pills, which were colored like candy, as well as 11 pounds of heroin and 10 pounds of methamphetamine.nnOn Wednesday, Border Patrol agents seized over 15,000 fentanyl pills strapped to a person’s legs. This was the second consecutive day colored fentanyl pills with the appearance of candy were seized this week.nnOne Pill Can Kill!nnParents, talk with your youth about pills and/or ￼prescription medication. Our youth are￼ more likely to￼￼ experiment with pills because we grow up with pills/medication all around us. nnThe pills are nicknamed “Blues” for their common color (though they can come in other colors) or “M30s” for the stamp on the pills. The tablets are so well made that even experienced users say that they can’t tell the difference between a counterfeit pill and a pill manufactured by a pharmaceutical company. To be clear, these are not pharmaceutical-grade painkillers; they are pills made by drug dealers, mostly outside the country. There is no quality control. Pills in the same batch can have wildly varying levels of fentanyl. The amount of fentanyl is takes to overdose and die is equivalent to two grains of sand.nnThe Deadly Link Between Social Media And Fentanyl Pills:nnTalk with your youth and monitor their social media use. The online environment provides platforms for people to sell substances. Substances can be offered by a friend or a stranger met online.nnMore information:https://www.dea.gov/dea-one-pill-can-kill-social-media-campaign
On August 18, at around 4:00 am, Officer Adams was on routine patrol when he observed a vehicle fail to make a complete stop at a stop sign, increasing speed in an effort to put distance between it and his marked police vehicle. Officer Adams activated his overhead lights and sirens to conduct a traffic stop, but the driver accelerated, frequently changing directions and soaring through a red light at an intersection as it traveled WB towards Pennsylvania Ave in Fairfield. Several motorists had to suddenly stop their vehicles to avoid a collision.nnThe driver then continued SB on Pennsylvania Ave at excessive rates of speed, leading officers on SR Hwy 12 and back into residential areas of downtown Fairfield, before turning towards Suisun City. The vehicle continued to run stop signs and drive at high rates of speed, making unsafe turns in complete disregard of public safety – until it was involved in a rear-end collision with an unoccupied vehicle in the 1000 block of Main St., Suisun.nnThe driver exited the car and fled, leaving behind a passenger. A search of the abandoned vehicle revealed the presence of items reported stolen during a vehicle burglary in Fairfield approximately one hour earlier – including a generator estimated to cost around $2500. Officer Orsi, who responded to the earlier burglary call, made the connection when he arrived on scene and noted markings on the generator like those reported to be on the burglary victim’s missing property.nnBoth suspect, identified as 25-year-old Angel Yanez-Estrada of Oakland, and passenger were arrested by officers after being transported to and released from a local hospital. Yanez-Estrada faces charges related to evading police, felony probation violation, receipt of stolen property, conspiracy to commit a crime, hit and run with property damage and damage to property.nnThanks to the officers’ perceptiveness, the stolen items were recovered and returned to the rightful owner, with no reported injuries to bystanders, suspect or police officers.nnGood work!
￼Parents, we know you’re ￼￼thrilled to drop off your children at school after a long summer, and take a sip of your favorite coffee without little Johnny yelling “hey mom” or “hey dad” what’s for lunch? Or maybe you’re late for work. nn￼Whatever it is, please slowdown, be kind, respectful and stop blocking/parking in our neighbors’ driveway. nnThank you, Fairfield. Drive safe. #backtoschool
Officer Lewis accepted a check from Fairfield Suisun Rotary Club to help cover costs for the Police Activities League (PAL) earlier this week. nnThe group applied for a district grant ($9,380) and then made a match from their club ($5,500), with additional funding supplied by the Cordelia Rotary Club($500) and the Twilight Rotary Club ($500).nnWe’re beyond grateful for the donation and excited for the Fairfield PAL Teen Center to open later this year! nnThe Fairfield PAL program offers Fairfield, Suisun, and Travis teens a place to grow, learn, and build the skills they need today and in the future. The PAL Center offers teens a safe environment, supports working families and helps students achieve by giving them opportunities right now.nnLearn more and/or donate at https://www.fairfield.ca.gov/government/city-departments/police/fairfield-pal.
It's Back to Skool...we mean SCHOOL! Summer sure flew by, didn't it? Like so many of you, we sent our not-so-little School Resource Officers (SROs) off this morning for their first day of school. And yes, we may or may not have celebrated when the "school bus" doors closed. They came back tonight with these carefully completed worksheets. We can already tell it's going to be a great year! Can't you?nnBut seriously (and despite what these very staged photos might suggest), we're looking forward to another school year and hope everyone has returned ready to work. nnFrank Lloyd Wright said it best, "I know the price of success: dedication, hard work and an unremitting devotion to the things you want to see happen.” Success is definitely what you make it, and we can't wait to see all the great things Fairfield's students accomplish this year!
