FAIRFIELD — Numerous police with guns drawn surrounded a car shortly after 9 a.m. Friday in a parking lot near the Solano Town Center mall.
The car, a 1991 Toyota Camry, was reported stolen Thursday from Fairfield, said Sgt. Randall Boggs of the Fairfield Police Department. A community services officer who took the stolen car report the previous day noticed the car Friday morning in the parking lot off Travis Boulevard.
Boggs said the suspects, Chiew Saephan, 37, and Fey Saephan, 31, both of Richmond, were sleeping in vehicle.
A police bullhorn roused the couple, who were ordered out of the car with their hands over their heads. Once the suspects were secured in the back of the squad cars, police searched the vehicle for contraband.
The suspects, boyfriend and girlfriend with the same last name, Boggs said, were arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen property and conspiracy. Chiew Saephan was booked on suspicion of possessing narcotics paraphernalia and Fey Saephan for suspicion of possession of burglary tools.
