FAIRFIELD — Two Fairfield residents were arrested early Tuesday in connection with a vehicle burglary in the Cordelia area.
William Burges III, 35, and Honora Herrington, 27, were arrested just after 4 a.m. during a traffic stop on the corner of Rockville and Suisun Valley roads, according to a press release issued by the Solano County Sheriff’s Office.
A sheriff’s deputy stopped the vehicle for a suspected Vehicle Code violation and determined both were on Post Release Community Supervision and subject to search and seizure.
During a search of the vehicle, the deputy allegedly found items that appeared not to belong to either Burges or Herrington. The deputy contacted the victim and asked him to check his vehicle for signs of a break-in. The victim complied and determined that he had been burglarized sometime during the night, according to the press release.
Authorities said the victim was able to identify several items found in the suspects’ vehicle. Mail from several different addresses in Cordelia near where the victim’s car was parked was also found inside the car, according to the release.
In addition to alleged vehicle burglary, Burges and Herrington were arrested on suspicion of possession of stolen property, conspiracy to commit burglary and violation of the their Post Release Community Supervision.
They were held without bail at the Solano County jail because of the post-release status. Their first court appearance is scheduled at 1:30 p.m. Thursday at the Fairfield courthouse.
