FAIRFIELD — Gary M. Swift, 65, was in court Monday morning for a probable cause hearing on a felony charge of being a felon in possession of a gun.
Swift was arrested in June. He posted $15,000 bail the day after his arrest.
At the same time Swift was at the courthouse in Fairfield, a Solano County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team and a sheriff’s hostage negotiations team were at Swift’s home on Clement Road north of Vacaville serving a search warrant, then going through the home.
Swift’s home was unoccupied. Deputies turned up two handguns, a 12-gauge shotgun and a large amount of unspent ammunition, according to a Sheriff’s Office release.
Swift was convicted in 2006 of a felony after he was found with a stolen car and a live hand grenade, according to Deputy Daryl P. Snedeker.
Back at the courthouse, deputies arrested Swift on new felony allegations. He is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday.
