Law enforcement officers arrest 43 in Fairfield

FAIRFIELD — Fairfield police have wrapped up an operation conducted with the U.S. Marshals Service and other law enforcement agencies that resulted in 43 arrests.

The operation took place one day last week and two days this week. Arrests involved allegations that included outstanding warrants, parole and probation violations, weapons offenses and controlled substance violations.

Fairfield police work with the U.S. Marshals Service on a regular basis when looking for wanted people, Fairfield Police Capt. Joe Allio said. The three-day operation grew out of conversations between the two parties after smaller operations earlier this year, he said.

The three-page, single-spaced press release that came out Thursday night has details on 10 arrests out of the 43, as well as seven photographs. Allio said police wanted to give residents the highlights of what had happened as soon as possible, since people have seen the U.S. Marshals truck in town. He mentioned the logistical problems of detailing all 43 arrests in the press release.

Arrests included:

  • Antoine Shaw, 21, of Fairfield, on suspicion of robbery, criminal conspiracy and unlawful possession of ammunition. He is a convicted felon with previous law enforcement contacts for felony battery, assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, possession of marijuana for sale and grand theft, police said. The arrest came when officers served a search warrant on the 1100 block of Coolidge Street related to a June 18 armed robbery in Fairfield. Officers also booked a 17-year-old into Juvenile Hall on suspicion of robbery, criminal conspiracy and a probation violation.
  • Allen Deleon, 47, of Fairfield, on suspicion of parole violation and a violation of the Sex Offender Registration Act. Deleon is a convicted felon and has prior law enforcement-related contacts for possession of burglary tools, possession of stolen property, theft, lewd and lascivious acts and forgery, the press release said.
  • Martin Meisler, 58, of Fairfield, on suspicion of being a fugitive out of Jefferson County, Ala. Meisler is a suspect for multiple sexual assault allegations. Meisler is a convicted felon and has prior law enforcement-related contacts for being a fugitive from justice, driving under the influence, possession of pornographic material, disorderly conduct, probation violation and traffic related offenses, the press release said.
  • Elijah Robinson, 22, of Fairfield, and Marcell Jack, 22, of Suisun City, on suspicion of violating weapons laws. Officers contacted them on the 100 block of Villa Circle and recovered two handguns during the investigation, the press release said.
  • James Goree, 20, of Fairfield, on suspicion of possession of a loaded and concealed firearm. Officers contacted him on a traffic stop and a passenger also believed to have a firearm fled on foot. Goree has prior law enforcement-related contacts for possession of controlled substances, assault with a deadly weapon, criminal conspiracy and accessory to a crime, the press release said.
  • Malcom Vaughn, 31, with a last known address in Oakland, on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm and of an alleged probation violation. Vaughn is a convicted felon and has prior law enforcement contacts for grand theft, auto theft, possession of controlled substances for sale, burglary, possession of controlled substances, transportation of controlled substances, disorderly conduct, domestic battery, driving under the influence and traffic related offenses, the press release said.
  • Christina Anderson, 31, of Fairfield, and Ebony McCallister, 31, of Fairfield, on suspicion of multiple felonies related to controlled substance violations. Both had outstanding warrants for their arrest. The arrests came after officers served a search warrant on the 500 block of Madison Street.

Fairfield police worked with the U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Marshals Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force, Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Solano County Violent Gang Safe Streets Task Force and the Solano County Sheriff’s Office Special Enforcement Team.

    these fools just never seem to learn so why not throw away the key and keep them away from us forever?

    They need to run these operations on a regular basis. How many of these criminals will be back on the streets in a couple days because of a messed up justice system? Definitely a good start, they need to keep on it.
