by CC News

Vacaville Police announced four people were were arrested Tuesday after a vehicle pursuit of a truck suspected of being involved with several burglaries.

According to police, this past Tuesday, around 1:30 in the afternoon, officers received notification that Fairfield PD had been in pursuit of a truck suspected to be involved in several vehicle burglaries in their city.

The truck had fled from FFPD officers and headed the wrong-way on I-80, so FFPD officers safely terminated their pursuit, but thankfully CHP Air Ops was Johnny-on-the-spot and in the area to keep a close eye on unfolding events.

As the driver exited into Vacaville, officers began to converge onto the truck, and watched in shock as the driver struck several other innocent vehicles and eventually became disabled near Elmira Rd. and Aegean Way.

4 suspects immediately fled from the truck on foot, but with the assistance of CHP Air Ops, VVPD officers were able to safely locate and detain all 4 suspects nearby.

Witnesses nearby reported seeing some of the suspects discard firearms as they fled, and officers recovered 2 firearms in nearby parking lots where the suspects had fled and 2 more inside the truck. None of the firearms were registered and all were loaded with magazines ranging from 11-33 rounds.

All four arrestees were men in their 20s from the San Francisco, San Pablo and Antioch areas. 3 had active probation terms, (one Federal), 1 had a prior arrest for Assault with a Deadly Weapon on a Peace Officer and 2 others had prior arrests for Homicide/Murder.

On Sunday, Vacaville police identified the suspects as:

  • Johnny Jackson (29 y/o), City of San Pablo
  • Pierre Vines (29 y/o), City of Antioch
  • Miller Jernigan (28 y/o), City of San Francisco
  • Franklin Ervin (27 y/o), City of San Francisco
All suspects were turned over to Fairfield Police and booked into the Solano County Jail on a plethora of felony charges.

Upstanding members of society….. if you didn’t think that somebody from Antioch was going to be on this list, you’re lying to yourself.

Pierre is apparently a violent crime repeat offender but hey, let’s just keep him on the streets so he can rob/steal/kill another time.
