By From page A3 | April 27, 2014

FAIRFIELD — A would-be robber and the two people he allegedly tried to rob ended up in Solano County jail Friday after police said they found marijuana, ammunition and body armor in the victims’ residence, according to the Fairfield Police Department.

It all started when police responded to a house on the 700 block of Tabor Avenue after getting reports of a disturbance involving a handgun.

According to police, Bronshea Alexander, 19, of Fairfield, allegedly went to the home of Raymond Leaks, 44, and Aiesha Scott, 24, both of Fairfield, at about 11:30 a.m. to rob them. At the residence, Alexander allegedly armed himself with a handgun and a struggle ensued between him and Leaks.

During the struggle, Scott got the gun and Alexander fled. Scott then allegedly tried to hide the handgun, according to police.

After serving a search warrant on the house, police said the Major Crimes Unit found a .22-caliber handgun, a large quantity of suspected marijuana, ammunition and body armor.

Alexander was booked into jail on suspicion of attempted robbery. Bail was set at $35,000. Scott was booked on suspicion of concealing evidence, with bail set at $3,000. Leaks was booked on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale, being a felon in possession of a firearm, being a felon in possession of ammunition, possession of body armor and possession of stolen property. Bail was a combined $35,000.

    The drug laws, the cops and the welfare underclass cost us untold sums every day. It must stop or the United States will be destroyed, starting with California first---probably by bankruptcy and rioting.

    If he's mad about his bail, then he should try not being a criminal for a change.

    Bronshea, Aiesha.....love these names. Princess, Ronquisha and D'Ghettos cousins. Solano County has turned into trash. Robbing drug dealers who are former felons, felons with guns and body armor...your families must be so proud.
