Fairfield police make chop-shop arrest in Vallejo

By From page A3 | April 05, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Fairfield police arrested a man in Vallejo on Thursday for a long list of allegations in a case that’s similar to one last week in rural Cordelia.

Allegations include owning or operating a chop shop, vehicle theft, conspiracy, possessing a controlled substance for sale and having a false compartment with the intent of concealing a controlled substance. The arrest took place at 14th Street and Georgia Street, according to the Sheriff’s Office booking log.

Police booked Alejandro Delgadillo Caro, 44, into Solano County Jail. The chop shop allegation had bail of $500,000 and the possessing a controlled substance for sale allegation bail of $85,000. The other felony allegations involve holds without bail, according to the Sheriff’s Office booking log.

Fairfield Police Sgt. Stephen Ruiz on Friday had no comment on the arrest.

Police have also had little comment to make on a March 28 SWAT operation on a ranch on Ramsey Road near Fairfield. That operation led to the arrest of a man on several similar allegations as those made against Caro, including owning or operating a chop shop.
