Sheriff’s search of neighborhood comes up empty

FAIRFIELD — A search for a wanted man briefly shut down a Fairfield neighborhood Wednesday afternoon, but the suspect got away.

With a helicopter above and canine units on the ground, Solano County Sheriff’s deputies conducted a yard-to-yard search of the 1800 block of Indiana Street, between Fifth and Utah streets, for Carlos Gonzalez, 20.

Deputy Daryl Snedeker said Gonzalez is wanted on outstanding warrants for assault and weapons violations.

He described Gonzalez as 5 feet 6 inches tall, 153 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and red shoes.

The incident started around 5 p.m. Sheriff’s deputies swarmed the neighborhood while Fairfield police closed off the street to pedestrians and traffic.

Snedeker said the Solano County Sheriff’s Enforcement Team was working in the area of Fifth Street, just off of Texas Street, when deputies pulled up behind a moving vehicle. As deputies checked to see whether the vehicle was stolen, the vehicle pulled into an alley off Fifth Street and the passenger side door opened and one person jumped out and ran, Snedeker said.

The deputies recognized the passenger as Gonzalez and established a perimeter before conducting their search, which came up empty.

Deputies also briefly detained, questioned and released the driver of the vehicle, Snedeker said. The perimeter was dropped by 5:42 p.m. The search ended at 6 p.m.

The search came a day after an armed man engaged Fairfield police in a seven-hour standoff. That incident ended when the Fairfield SWAT team stormed the home and took the suspect into custody.
