VACAVILLE — Dezmon Frazier, 20, is a fugitive no more.

Vacaville police took him into custody about noon Wednesday on the 100 block of Agean Way.

Frazier was due in court Tuesday concerning his July 1 arrest in Vacaville on allegations of being a felon in possession of a semiautomatic weapon. He posted $50,000 bail and was released after a few hours in jail.

A $100,000 arrest warrant was issued Tuesday for Frazier.

Vacaville police learned that Frazier was hiding inside a Vacaville residence. Officers contact the owner of the home, where Frazier was found. He was arrested without incident and booked into Solano County jail, according to a release from the Vacaville Police Department.

He is also awaiting sentencing for involuntary manslaughter in the 2011 killing of a 70-year-old market owner. As part of a plea deal, Frazier pleaded no contest in the death of Ho Kim, who owned and operated the Travis Dairy market in Fairfield.

Kim was assaulted during the incident and had a fatal heart attack. Frazier and others netted several packs of cigarettes and $60 during the heist.

    Well, he didn't get far. I know that block of Aegean fairly well. There is a self storage business, a trailer park, and two apartment complexes, one of which is very sketchy. Judging by the wording, he was hiding in one of the trailers. Glad they got him, but it was a stupid decision to allow him to post bail, given his history. I hope this time he's not let out.

    Awaiting sentencing for Involuntary manslaughter? So he's involved in a murder and he's running the streets...am I missing something here? He's obviously not going to contribute to society other than crime so either keep his punk ass locked up or better yet..let's involuntary manslaughter him. An eye for an eye.
