SUISUN CITY — Two men in a truck loaded with copper wiring were arrested early Tuesday and booked into the Solano County jail on suspicion of felony theft and other related alleged offenses.
James F. Ferguson, 49, and Christopher L. Newcomer, 35, were stopped by police shortly after 5 a.m. as they drove from the area of Hickam Circle. Police received a call about 90 minutes earlier reporting that two men had parked a truck on Hickam Circle and were seen walking with a backpack into a field toward the Lambrecht Sports Complex. Police later discovered that copper wiring at the ball fields had been stolen.
Ferguson, a Fairfield resident and Newcomer, of Suisun City, both have been arrested several times in recent years, according to court records.
