Fairfield police have arrested a second man suspected of robbing a credit union earlier this month. Two suspects with semi-automatic handguns robbed the Solano First Credit Union in the 1000 block of Union Avenue in Fairfield around 10:10 a.m. on Dec. 12 and fled in a vehicle, Lt. Stephen Crane said. The suspects abandoned the vehicle, which was reported stolen, in the area of Washington Street and Bell Avenue where they were going to be picked up by another vehicle, Crane said.
One of the suspects ran through neighboring yards and escaped in another vehicle, but police arrested the second suspect near the abandoned vehicle. He was identified as Maurice Hill, 41, of Sacramento, a convicted felon with a history of drug, weapons, theft, burglary and other arrests, Crane said. Police found a firearm and other evidence from the robbery where Hill was arrested, and detectives later found the second vehicle used in the robbery, Crane said.
On Thursday morning, a SWAT team served search warrants at two residences associated with Hill in the 1300 block of Eisenhower Street and the 600 block of Kennedy Court in Fairfield, Crane said. Police detained Gabriel Mosby, 55, and Ramona Hill, 45, both of Fairfield, at the Kennedy Court residence, Crane said. Mosby is a convicted felon with prior police contacts for burglary, theft, drug and robbery offenses.
Ramona Hill also is a convicted felon with prior police contacts for fraud, burglary, theft, perjury and other offenses, Crane said. Mosby is suspected of being the driver of the second get-away vehicle and he was booked in the Solano County Jail for robbery and conspiracy, Crane said. Ramona Hill was booked on suspicion of obstructing law enforcement and possession of drug paraphernalia, Crane said. Maurice Hill also is a suspect in the armed robberies at a gas station in the 3300 block of North Texas Street in Fairfield on Sept. 10, at a check cashing store in the 2100 block of North Texas Street in Fairfield on Sept. 12 and in other armed robberies in the Bay Area, Crane said.
