By From page A3 | November 17, 2012

VACAVILLE — A Fresno man has been booked on suspicion of robbery and burglary for two crimes in Vacaville.

Jules Hollis. 41, was taken into custody Wednesday in Fresno. He is believed to be one of two black men who on Sept. 28 entered the Burberry store in the Vacaville Premium Outlets and stole $20,000 of merchandise.

He is also a suspect in the Oct. 8 robbery at the Gucci store in Vacaville, when four to five black males entered the store and robbed the employees at gunpoint. More than $13,000 in merchandise was taken.

Vacaville police detectives tied  the two crimes to numerous similar burglaries and robberies throughout Northern California. Hollis is a suspect in some of the other cases, according to a Police Department press release.

An arrest warrant for Hollis was obtained Nov. 8. Vacaville detectives worked with Fresno law enforcement to apprehend Hollis, who was at the Fresno County Jail with bail set at $150,000.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the crimes is asked to call police at 449-5200 or Detective Nathan Benevides at 469-4724.
