A SWAT team has surrounded the home of a suspect in two explosive device incidents, according to a Fairfield police dispatcher. The dispatcher said the home was on the west side of Fairfield off of Astoria Drive, but could not give a more exact address. Daniel Garcia, 29, was named Friday as the suspect in two incidents. A $200,000 warrant has been issued for his arrest for use of a destructive device. On May 27, police found that a pipe bomb had been detonated under a parked vehicle in a parking lot of an apartment complex in the 1400 block of Phoenix Drive. The owner of the vehicle put out the fire from the explosion before police arrived. The blast caused minor damage to the vehicle’s undercarriage, police said. On Thursday, police executed a search warrant at a location in the 1600 block of Quincey and found an explosive device and the materials to make it. Garcia is described as 5 feet 10 inches tall, 250 pounds and bald with blue eyes. He frequents the Fairfield and Vacaville area, police have said.
