FAIRFIELD — The 20-year-old Vacaville man who joined several friends in the deadly 2011 heist of the Travis Dairy in Fairfield pleaded not guilty Thursday to a felony gun possession charge.

Dezmon “Young D” Frazier was awaiting sentencing on an involuntary manslaughter and burglary charge for the Travis Dairy theft when Vacaville police arrested him outside an Alamo Drive apartment on the night of July 1 and said they found Frazier packing a loaded semi-automatic handgun.

Frazier, who posted bail shortly after his arrest on the gun charge, was a no-show for his arraignment earlier this week. Vacaville police caught up to him Wednesday.

During his brief court appearance, Frazier was ordered to remain locked up without bail until he is sentenced on the Travis Dairy case. That sentencing will likely not take place before the pending jury trial for one of the accomplices in the case who faces a murder charge.

Frazier was ordered to return to court July 28 to schedule a probable cause hearing for the gun case.

    He will get out, off. His defense for carrying is obvious: the justice system failed to protect him from victim retaliation by jailing him behind locked bars after his admitted murder, so he needed gun to protect himself against society retaliation. after admitting a crime, he should have been behind bars, not free on bail, bail is meant to help the presumed innocent prepare a defense, not to allow admitted convicted felon to live it up.

    Kid obviously doesn't get it. The longer he's locked up, the safer the community and he will be.

    "During his brief court appearance, Frazier was ordered to remain locked up without bail until he is sentenced on the Travis Dairy case. That sentencing will likely not take place before the pending jury trial for one of the accomplices in the case who faces a murder charge." Here's an idea, how about not sentencing him, letting it fall through the cracks, for 50 or 60 years. Then sentence him to be put UNDER THE JAIL!!!!

    Those marks on his eyebrow have nothing to do with gangs. My son has been getting them since he was 10. He is now 15, honor roll student, 3.9 gpa, starting position for football & track & already has college offers. This kid needs to be put under the jail BUT not because of his eyebrows.

    You have so much to learn about gang members, so much. you think gang members only have 1.8 GPA's? man your son maybe ok, but trust me this is signs of gang activity, something you better look into.

    Not trying to sound racist but you must be Caucasian because the lines in the eyebrows is a fashion statement. My brother is a minister & hes been doing it since he was a teen. I am 37yrs old & its been a fashion statement since I was a teen. Dont judge a book by its cover. In this day & age you NEVER know what a persons about just by looking at them, looks can be very deceiving.

    Awwww its so cute how you think you just made a valid point cb. When my son, & his eyebrows, are off at college your daughter will be sitting in the welfare line waiting for her # to be called while your son is holding a sign asking for change. Theres no way an asshole like you can possibly have amounted to anything in life & even less likely that your kids will.

    Shaved eyebrows can be a sign of a gang activity. You can google it. Doesn't mean that your son is in a gang because a lot of gang fashion becomes a mainstream fashion statement. And we don't need to judge this kid by his looks. His actions speak loud enough.
