Police arrest 2 in Vacaville – including Travis Dairy killer

VACAVILLE — Police searching for three suspects wanted in connection with a strong-arm robbery this week instead arrested two men on unrelated allegations. One of them was involved in the 2011 robbery of Travis Dairy that resulted in the death of the store’s owner.

Police responded at about 2:30 p.m. Tuesday to Keating Park for a reported strong-arm robbery. The victim told police that her purse and cellphone were stolen by two black men and one white man who were between 20 and 30 years old. They were last seen running from California Drive and onto Mariposa Drive.

Vacaville residents Dezmon D. Frazier, 20, and Armoni M. Wiley, 23, were found by police in the nearby apartment parking lot on the 1500 block of Alamo Drive, according to a police press release. Frazier is known by local police and Wiley was out of custody as part of California’s prison realignment, according to the press release.

Police searched Frazier and allegedly found a concealed and loaded 9 mm Smith & Wesson handgun with a high-capacity magazine that did not return as registered to him, according to police. He was arrested and booked into the county jail on suspicion of being a felon in possession of a firearm, committing a felony while out on bail, possession of a loaded firearm he doesn’t own, and possession of a high-capacity magazine.

Bail was a combined $50,000.

Wiley allegedly had not been in contact with his probation officer and was arrested and booked into the county jail on suspicion of violating the terms of his post-release community supervision. He was held without bail.

Police determined that both men were not involved in the strong-arm robbery.

Frazier is awaiting sentencing after pleading no contest to manslaughter and burglary charges in the Travis Dairy case. He was one of four teens involved in the June 2011 Travis Dairy theft who took the plea deal. A fifth suspect awaits a murder trial in connection with the death of Ho Kim, 70.

    Glad to see justice was served in the Travis Dairy case. I'm sure they will both be out to enjoy the holiday weekend. I'm sure they have other tax payers to victimize.

    I agree. Still hasn't been sentenced for a murder committed 3 years ago, now has a handful of new charges, and bail is a measly $50k.

    Yup and so goes the revolving door of justice in Solano County, which is why the D.A. lost the election. Bail should be 50 MILLION, not 50 Thousand, since Perps need only come up with 10%. These Perps need to be I UNDER the JAIL on IN IT!!!!!!!!! Maybe someday Vigilante justice's head will rise in Solano County, the sooner the better. Any Super hero Cops out there, that want to go UNDERCOVER, take care of business, Charles Bronson style :-).

    JazzAzz, remember how everyone here was reacting to the sentencing and how angry we were? Many said they'll be back. Frazier had a "loaded 9 mm Smith & Wesson handgun with a high-capacity magazine!" Where did he get those? NO WAY he hits the streets again, dude with his history and a gun like that? Somebody was going to die!

    Really? Are these two that important? You advocate placing ones own freedom in jeopardy because of your emotions? Check yourself.

    This is why Ca. Needs to issue cows to all legal citizen who choose to carry.by the time the police are called punks like this will have a defenseless person robbed and left for dead.it's time the people of this state wake up?the police can't be there for your protection.the only way to do it is for our state reps to reform gun control laws and give rights back the the citizens.if they choose not to do this then vote them out of office.wake up people.

    Ho Kim. Let's take a moment out of today and think about the victim in the Travis Dairy killing. And if you like, take a few more moments to think about all of the future victims of these criminals who got away with murder.
