VACAVILLE — Police arrested two people Thursday – one after a standoff involving Santa Clara County authorities – in connection with a Sunday armed robbery at a U-Haul center on Monte Vista Avenue.

Vacaville police learned that Joshua Davenport, 34, of Suisun City, a suspect in the armed robbery, and Jessika Davenport, his wife, were together at a Motel 6 in Gilroy, according to a news release.

Detectives from the Vacaville Police Department, along with members of the Gilroy Police Department, converged on the motel and began surveillance Thursday. During the surveillance, officers identified Joshua Davenport as he entered one of the rooms of the motel, while his wife was seen leaving the area in the couple’s vehicle, according to the release.

Police conducted a traffic stop a short time later and Jessika Davenport was taken into custody. Several children with her were taken into protective custody, police said. Joshua Davenport arrested after a short standoff with Gilroy SWAT officers back at the motel, according to the release. Police said a firearm was found in the motel room.

Joshua Davenport was booked into the Solano County Jail for the outstanding robbery arrest warrant and on suspicion of assault with a semiautomatic firearm, willfully threatening to commit a crime that will result in great bodily harm, and being a felon in possession of a firearm. He was held without bail.

Jessika Davenport was booked into the jail on suspicion of aiding and abetting a wanted fugitive. Bail was set at $15,000.

The search for the suspects began shortly after three armed suspects burst into the U-Haul Center on the 1200 block of East Monte Vista Avenue just after 5:30 p.m. Sunday and forced the employees into one area of the store while making off with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

Witnesses reported the suspects fled in a tan 1999 Ford Expedition with California license plate number 4FIZ662. Detectives were still trying to identify the other two suspects.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Vacaville Police Department at 449-5200 or Detective Adam Senf at 469-5245.
