FAIRFIELD — The Solano County operation of a national FBI investigation to address commercial child sex trafficking resulted in the rescue of one minor and the arrest of four men for alleged pimping, the Fairfield Police Department says.

Police said Lorenzo Grays, an 18-year-old Suisun City resident, was arrested on suspicion of pimping. Grays has prior law enforcement-related contacts for alleged battery, criminal threats, burglary, obstructing law enforcement, possession of stolen property, robbery and domestic violence, according to police.

Marcus Cole, a 26-year-old Vallejo resident, was arrested on suspicion of pimping. Cole is a convicted felon and has prior law enforcement-related contacts for alleged robbery, kidnapping, domestic violence, false imprisonment, carjacking, burglary and human trafficking, according to police.

Martinez resident Patrick Winters, 43, was arrested on suspicion of communicating with a minor for purposes of engaging in lewd conduct, police said. Sheraz Gul, 38, of Berkeley, was also arrested on suspicion of communicating with a minor for purposes of engaging in lewd conduct.

The FBI, with local, state and federal law enforcement partners, over the past week conducted Operation Cross Country VIII. About  400 separate agencies participated nationwide. The Sacramento division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation participated in this operation and conducted operations with state and local law enforcement partners in Solano, Sacramento and Fresno counties.

The Solano County operation was conducted at various locations in Fairfield and in a coordinated effort with the Fairfield Police Department, the FBI, the Solano County District Attorney’s Office, the Solano County Sheriff’s Office, the Vacaville Police Department and the Suisun City Police Department.

    Jimbo, sign up for Nixel (dot com) you will see the photos there. For the other .. this was not a waste of time but a good operation done to help citizens. More than 4 were arrested, but the 4 here were from our area.

    This kind of law enforcement makes sense compared to setting money aside to bust Chop Shops, has anyone read about a chop shop being busted recently? When was the last one found? Let's try going after speeders, red light/stop sign runners(read Suisun City)

    It doesn't make it right. They are too young to get involved in this and too young to understand the repercussions. Your body and your mind don't mature at the same time.
