Jewelry heist suspects waive probable cause hearing

By From page A8 | January 22, 2014

FAIRFIELD — Two of the several suspects in an August 2012 Vacaville jewelry store heist that netted more than $500,000 in pricey watches and other items waived a probable cause hearing Tuesday.

Tishan Lowe, 21, and Philip K. Meredith, 20, both free on bail, agreed to return to court to be arraigned on felony armed robbery charges on Feb. 7, the same day two of their alleged accomplices are set to be in court.

Lowe and Meredith along with Derrick McCann Jr, 19, Jacobi A. Sanford, 17, and Adrian Landers III, 19, were arrested in Fairfield several minutes after the heist at DeBartolo & Co. jewelry store in downtown Vacaville.

Landers faces an unrelated murder charge and is currently jailed in San Francisco.
