Police have arrested one of two men who posed as utility workers and robbed a Vallejo home earlier this month. The home invasion robbery occurred at a home in the 1400 block of Farrell Street the morning of Aug. 7, according to police. Three residents, including a 6-year-old girl, were tied up and robbed by two men claiming to be PG&E employees, police said. The imposters, who were wearing orange vests and hard hats, pistol-whipped one of the residents after they had gained entry and tied up the three residents.
After two minutes rummaging through the home, they left with cash and other items and drove away in a gold SUV similar to a Cadillac Escalade, police said.
Since the robbery, Ray Fraire was identified as a suspect after he was arrested in connection with two other armed robberies that had occurred at the Jamba Juice at 165 Plaza Drive on July 18 and at a Starbucks at 966 Admiral Callaghan Lane on July 25.
The second suspect remains at large today but has been identified as Darryl Lee Cox. There is a $100,000 warrant out for his arrest, police said. Cox is also wanted in connection with the two other robberies, police said.
