FAIRFIELD — Police arrested two convicted felons after the theft of goods, including a 1979 Morgan classic vehicle valued at $45,000, from the property of a 71-year-old Fairfield man who died in April at his Centennial Drive home.

Unknown suspects had stolen goods from the home in May. The Fairfield Police Department General Investigations Unit found the stolen vehicle on the 5400 block of Dally Road in rural Vacaville.

Detectives identified James Whitmire, 42, as being associated with the address, police said. Whitmire is currently on federal probation.

Whitmire was contacted at about 6 a.m. Friday and detained at the Walmart store on Helen Power Drive in Vacaville. While Whitmire was being detained, the Fairfield Police Department SWAT team, along with the Solano County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team, executed a search warrant at the Dally Road address.

Four people were contacted on the property during the search and the stolen vehicle was recovered, said police, who noted federal probation officers assisted with the investigation.

Whitmire is a convicted felon with prior law enforcement-related contacts for arson, burglary, fraud, carrying a loaded firearm, carrying a concealed firearm, possession of a deadly weapon and a felon in possession of a firearm, according to police. He was booked into the Solano County jail on suspicion of possessing stolen property and a federal probation violation.

One of the four people contacted on the property was identified as Solano County resident Timothy Pollock, who was placed under arrest and booked into Solano County jail for two outstanding warrants. The other three people were released.

Pollock, 55, is a convicted felon and also has an extensive criminal history with prior law enforcement-related contacts for auto theft, assault with a deadly weapon, disorderly conduct, theft, battery, criminal conspiracy, possessing marijuana for sale, robbery, possession of a controlled substance, domestic violence, criminal threats, false imprisonment and child cruelty, according to police.

The cause of death of the 71-year-old Fairfield man is not known, police said, but nothing of a suspicious nature was discovered during the investigation.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Fairfield Police Department Major Crimes Unit at 428-7600, the 24-hour tip line at 428-7345 or Crime Stoppers at 644-7867. Callers may remain anonymous.
