Fairfield Police: $1,105 found in pants is money from narcotics sales

FAIRFIELD — The $1,105 in cash that a detective found in a suspect’s clothing after gunfire at a Fairfield motel is money from narcotics sales, police say.

The asset forfeiture case filed in Solano County Superior Court by the government follows a March 7 incident at America’s Best Value Inn on North Texas Street where police were dispatched after a 4:07 a.m. disturbance call.

Fairfield Police Detective Zachary Sandoval stated in court records that police told Jerry Lyle Andrews Jr. 31, to show his hands, he refused and began running from officers toward a green Mercedes-Benz in the parking lot.

Andrews was holding a semiautomatic firearm in his right hand, gunfire was exchanged, the wounded Andrews fell to the ground and was handcuffed, Sandoval stated.

The money was found inside Andrews’ right front pocket – and inside the Mercedes-Benz, police found five containers of methamphetamine and 14 Xanax pills, Sandoval stated.

The money is now held in an interest-bearing account with the Finance Department for the city of Fairfield. The money was transferred from the Fairfield Police Department property division, according to court records.

Aaron Montrell Minor, 24, who is named in the asset forfeiture case along with Andrews, said Thursday he was asleep inside the car, Andrews had his money and the forfeiture cases involving the two men have been separated. Minor said none of his fingerprints were on the drugs and the funds are not connected to narcotics sales.

He said an Aug. 8 court hearing is set and that he expects to get his cellphone back from police.

Criminal charges field against Minor after the March 7 incident at Best Value were dismissed this month.

A Jan. 6, 2015, case management conference is scheduled in Solano County Superior Court about the asset forfeiture case involving Andrews and filed in April.

Attorney Patrick Riggs, representing Andrews in the funds case, could not be reached Thursday for comment.

An Oct. 6 preliminary hearing is set for the separate felony criminal case against Andrews filed after the March 7 incident.

    Aaron Minor doesn't have clean hands, but by all means, believe the word of a criminal, so when his case finally makes it to court, you can slap him on the wrist, send him on his way on probation, and look forward to the next time he's arrested, because it will happen.

    A little confused. So Minor's case has been dismissed, but they are taking civil action only against him?

    I support the FPD and their efforts to keep us safe. I am glad to know they are working to rid our city of such perps as the two losers in the above article. Only druggies and drunks would think it a waste of time and laugh about the FPD's work on this case. What we need are stronger Judges, many we have right now are corrupt with power.

    A case for a bust of 1000 bucks was not a worth a write up in the paper!!!

    That's true, B. But it does make a nice diversion from the real crimes and injustices that are inflicted upon us taxpayers.
