Police: Car chase ends with discovery of Molotov cocktail

From page A6 | May 14, 2014 |

VACAVILLE — Police on Monday said they discovered a Molotov cocktail during an early morning traffic stop.

An officer noticed a pickup truck run a stop sign on Markham Avenue at around 12:33 a.m. Sunday, according to a city press release. The driver allegedly tried to evade the officer by crossing into oncoming traffic and driving at speeds twice the posted limit, police said in a press release.

The truck’s driver at one point turned off the vehicle’s lights, police said. When the officer caught up to the truck, the driver continued for another mile before pulling over on Vine Street.

During a search of the vehicle, officers said they found the fire bomb. As a result, Vine Street was closed to traffic for a short time while a detective from the Yolo County Bomb Squad disassembled the device.

Adam W. Sexson, a 43-year-old Vacaville resident, was booked on suspicion of possessing of an explosive device, evading police, burglary and receiving stolen property, all felonies; and reckless driving and destroying or concealing evidence, both misdemeanors. Bail was a combined $73,000.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call the Vacaville Police Department at 449-5200.

    A motorist ran a stop sign? Sounds like a case of a terrorist being discovered by an officer that actually went the distance. Nice.

    Right on CD. No crime in Vacaville, some say/THINK, YEAH RIGHT. The crime logs there are nearly just as long. So don't feel left out people up there :-)

    No one is stupid enough to think there is no crime. However, the difference between Fairfield and Vacaville is massive.

    The difference in Vaca's crime logs V. Fairfields is the police are catching criminals here. FF is a long list of shootings and witnesses scared to talk to police. Vacaville is TRYING to combat this criminal trend that's moving over the area.

    The other difference is the sheeple of Fairfield voted for HIGHER taxes because they were told paying more taxes would help rid the city of crime, It has had the exact opposite effect. The care tactics used by the city council and police worked yet the crime is still here, actually even worse!

    Any connection to the crazy Pastor Lewis? Perhaps one of his minions trying to create some kind of twisted doubt or to hurt his ex? I'd start there. As for Vacaville vs Fairfield, we have more cops living here and don't have a problem standing up for our families and working with law enforcement to help them solve crimes. Our officers are trustworthy too. People get killed here but the difference is we cooperate with and talk to and have relationships with our officers. You commit crime here we are talking, you try to intimidate we call again and again and if not us our neighbors or all of us. The gangs are what percentage of any community? They are outnumbered! Give it a shot, make an anonymous tip! Oh and I couldn't help but notice how quickly a shooting near a park in FF was solved when they brought in Vacaville cops.

    this is my thoughts on the Vacaville policevdepartmentyeah you might think the Vacaville of police department are doing their job the benefit everybody in all actuality tho, even if you going to work everyday being a successful and productive member of society theree still going to harrass us, asking you to search your car looking for drugs ona simple headlight out occassion. And when you get home and you look in your headlight Isn't even out...they were just board. No wonder they said they were GivGiving u a break and he still had the nerve to ask you if you don't tell me tell me tell me tell me three names your losing your license and going to prison...when you're a 95 year old woman on her way home frrrom church they still harrass u... they're ridiculous anything for there ammussment.i harassing for no reason majority of the time its on false pretenses. Out oof boredom. Say you walking down the street at 10 o'clock at night they're pulling up for deep... No reason at all. honestly I see all this they took me to the hospital for a full cavity search for riding my bike on the sidewalk and that's the honest to god truthso I might have been on probation but it wasn't Even a serious charge but that's relevant anyway .to look more into this do not look more into it look up the Mikey Gibber story. Thx and have a nice night only thing in concluding my neighbor was pregnant just last week and wanted to go to the store to get some ice cream at about 1130 at night and she changed her mind and change of heart disease it might take the chance of being lucky number picKed or should I sayyb picked on by the vvpd. and she's a registered nurse for Goodness sakes. what is this world coming to do with the freedom
