The Solano County Sheriff’s Office identified a second suspect today in the murder of a Suisun City man on Tuesday. Sheriff’s Lt. Brad DeWall said Eriberto “Eddie” Perez, 25, of Vacaville, also is wanted for the murder of 27-year-old Jimmy Degros of Suisun City. Eriberto Perez is the younger brother of 26-year-old Sergio Luis Perez, also of Vacaville. Sergio Perez was arrested outside the residence in the 7200 block of Steiger Hill Road in unincorporated Solano County west of Vacaville where Degros’ body was found after gunshots were heard around 9 p.m. Tuesday.
The sheriff’s office today said marijuana plants, processed marijuana and cocaine worth more than $1 million were recovered inside the Steiger Hill Road residence. Sheriff’s deputies responded to the residence after an anonymous caller reported a loud argument and gunfire in the area, sheriff’s Deputy Daryl Snedeker said. As the deputies arrived, Sergio Perez was leaving the residence in a vehicle, but he backed up and parked in front of the residence, Snedeker said.
Perez was detained and deputies found Degros’ body nearby. Perez was questioned and booked into the Solano County jail for murder and resisting arrest. His arraignment today was postponed until Aug. 2. Eriberto Perez is believed to have fled the murder scene before deputies arrived, DeWall said. He is believed to be driving a gold or brown mid-2000’s 4-door Cadillac with large chrome wheels. Eriberto Perez is 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs 110 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.
