Suspect arrested in rural Vaca burglary

By From page A3 | January 09, 2014

VACAVILLE — Solano County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man suspected in a pre-dawn residential burglary Wednesday.

Around 4 a.m., the Sheriff’s Office received a call reporting the burglary from a resident in the 7200 block of Blue Ridge Road in an unincorporated area west of Vacaville, according to a news release.

According to the release, the caller provided a detailed description of a pickup truck seen in the area at the time.

Deputies arrived and saw a truck, matching the caller’s description, trying to leave the area.

The release states that deputies conducted a traffic stop on the truck as it reached Pleasants Valley Road.

As a deputy engaged the driver of the truck, other deputies arrived at the residence and discovered a forced-open door and various items staged on the grounds to be picked up.

The driver of the truck was questioned and more property found in the truck was identified by the owner as being taken from inside the residence, according to police.

Deputies arrested the driver of the truck, Bret Alvin Fergerson, 41, of Fairfield.

Fergerson was booked into the Solano County Jail on suspicion of residential burglary and possession of stolen property – both felonies.

He later posted $60,000 bail and was released from custody.

The burglary was the fourth burglary or robbery in as many days in the Vacaville area, reaching back to Sunday.

The crime spree began with an armed robbery at a U-Haul center on Monte Vista Avenue Sunday, and included a home-invasion robbery Tuesday.

There was another robbery Monday, but police have not released any information on it.

Police have said the incidents do not appear to be related.
