Police arrest 22-year-old in pornography case

By From page A3 | July 11, 2014

VACAVILLE — A Vacaville man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of possessing child pornography after a monthlong investigation, according to a press release from the Vacaville Police Department.

A search warrant was served about 9 a.m. at an apartment in the 1900 block of Peabody Road.

Detectives were looking for evidence that a person living or staying there was utilizing the Internet to download and share child pornography.

Officers found Devyn Witt, 22, of Vacaville, during the search of the apartment, which he shares with his girlfriend.

Police said a laptop and other digital media were located in his bedroom that contained multiple downloaded videos from the Internet of child pornography. He allegedly admitted that the laptop and other digital media belonged to him, according to a Vacaville Police Department press release.

A complete forensic search of these items will be conducted by the department’s computer specialist at the computer lab.

Witt was arrested and booked into Solano County Jail on suspicion of possession of child pornography.

    2Real, The amount if negativity you posess seems to be at monumental levels. Do you possess a single positive atom within your being? Try stepping away from the news a big (both news and police scanners typically speak only of negatives and not positives). Go outside, enjoy life and try some people watching. Then you'll see that not only does Vacaville not claim the capital type you suspect it does, but that it was deserving for being in top 10 most fun cities in the country. Try taking a slow stroll through Suisun valley and try opening your eyes to actually enjoy the positives and not the negatives. Maybe if the world have less negativity then majority of news articles wouldn't have to the norm.

    No kidding. We get it 2real. You are an angry, cynical, miserable person. Unfortunately the DR does not focus resources on good substantive news so readers like you are misled into thinking that Fairfield is all bad. Most Fairfieldians are hard working, law abiding citizens. Why don't you focus your negative energy on wherever it is you reside.

    Maybe it's some form of anger management therapy. You know, vent here so you don't explode somewhere else. Please tell us, 2real, that you're not like you sound in real life.

    2real is a tough gay h*m*phobe that speaks through his love of god. He is the epitome of the hypocritically possessed.

    2REAL will never get the point. If you have to explain something to somebody they will never understand it.

    Your responses make me realize your self absorbed and only "about yourself". You love the attention either positive or negative. You sadly feed on it and it continues to drive you to comment. You should try stepping out of your "world revolves around me and what I see in a micro environment" and figure out the bigger picture. If you don't like the direction of the politics and city, then try going to public hearings and making your voice be heard in the real world and not behind a keyboard. Then again, I'm sure you'd get ripped apart in a debate or conversation based on actual events because you tend to be short sighted and tend to consider some outlandish thought is true based on made up thoughts and not actual data. Good luck in life, you and the people you closely interact with need it.
