On Monday at around 5:00 pm, two suspects attempted to steal merchandise from Macy’s at the Solano Town Center Mall where an Antioch man was taken into custody and booked on multiple felony charges.
According to Fairfield Police, 19-year-old Rudolpho James of Antioch was confronted by store security while leaving the store without paying for merchandise where they ultimately tackled him.
Upon taking James into custody, the loss prevention officers found he had a hand gun which was loaded. James was disarmed by security and handcuffed until police arrived. He was booked and is now in Solano County Jail.
The second suspect fled by foot and it’s unclear if he participated in the incident or not.
