Vacaville police: High-speed chase ends with arrests

From page A4 | July 12, 2014 |

VACAVILLE — Vacaville police arrested two known gang members after a high-speed chase Friday morning, according to a Vacaville Police Department press release.

Around 11 a.m., a detective with the department’s Crime Suppression Team spotted a gold Cadillac at the intersection of Alamo Drive and Davis Street with expired license plate tags. The detective attempted a traffic stop of the vehicle, turning on his lights and siren.

Police said the driver, later identified as Maurice Jones, 18, of Vacaville, sped off, leading officers on a high-speed chase down Marshall Road.

The pursuit ended when Jones, trying to avoid another vehicle while speeding at 70 mph, lost control of his car and crashed into a fence, according to the release.

At that point, Jones and a passenger in the vehicle, later identified as Daniel Carranza, 18, also of Vacaville, attempted to discard a stolen semi-automatic pistol by tossing it out of the vehicle’s window, according to police.

Both Jones and Carranza were placed under arrest. Jones was arrested on suspicion of evading police with disregard to the public’s safety and possession of a stolen firearm, and Carranza was arrested on suspicion of possession of a stolen firearm.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Vacaville Police Department Crime Suppression Team at 449-5200.

    Reread the article. How many guns were found? How can two people be in possession of one gun? The current practice of throwing as many charges against the wall and seeing what sticks is sickening, not to mention the only people that benefit from this practice are bail agents who are taking bail on all of the charges brought at arrest, well, I guess the policeman who gets to tell his captain that he made double the amount of felony arrests gets a little benefit too. How many extra man hours are being wasted typing information into computers about crimes that are known not to been have committed? Charge the right crimes at the time of arrest and prosecute at the level of the charge at time of arrest, don't plea these guys down for probation, only to have them in this same newspaper four months down the road on a slough of new charges. And , if they are indeed known gang members, why aren't they being charged with 186.22pc? and other enhancements for the gun being found? Those are the laws the state enacted to take the gangsters off of the streets, why overcharge on a trumped up gun case and then leave off the enhancements that would be worth the most time behind bars? Welcome to Solano, winner of the backwards bill awards for the umpteenth time.

    Just for my benefit "boom", if neither passenger admits to the possession, which one do you charge? I agree with you about "piling on" charges but the possession charge needs to be worked out later or have these upstanding folks be hobest at the time of questioning.

    Looks like it's time for you two legal-eagles to go back to law school. This time pay attention in class.

    Just imagine the number of folks driving around with illegal paraphernalia, warrants, DUI and who-knows-what-else? This is what happens when somebody is paying attention...

    @Illegal Scholar- You can check my sheet, I've beat the 9th court district of appeals via habeas corpus. @Mike, just for your benefit, you charge the man who threw the weapon out of the window for possession of a stolen firearm, duh?

    Gee, how can two people be in possession of the same gun? Have you legal eagles figured that one out yet??

    Physical possession and "constructive" possession. I won't bore you with the details, but that is how two suspects. An possess one gun.

    That's exactly right. Now, answer this, is one suspect or both suspects going to get a guilty on this? I understand the elements of the law, you both speak as if you have superior legal knowledge, which you may well, if your client was the one charged with constructive possession if that weapon, would you get him off or not? And then here we are back at my point of overcharging. It bears saying that if either of you two are lawyers, overcharging helps defense attorneys make more money per felony charged, so you would be kinda biased too...

    I am not an attorney, so I can't really answer your question. If I was to hazard a guess, I would imagine they would have separate trials, and with their criminal history (if allowed), would result in a guilty verdict. But with jurys today, who knows? Do I think it is overcharging? No. If I was the passenger, and the gun didn't come from my window, I would have sat there, and not run. Guess we will have to wait and see.
