“The woman next door called 911 and left her cellphone on so they could hear the conversation inside the house,” he said.“It (the standoff) went on for about a half an hour when finally a suspect came out into the backyard with a weapon and they told him get down on the ground and drop your weapon OR YOU'RE GOING TO DIE...Another suspect came out with a shotgun and they did the same to him.”

what alarms me is the fact that now we have out of state criminals coming to get a piece of vallejo. 15 or so police are planning on leaving and we are going to TRY to hire 5? this city refuses to accept the gravity of the problem!
local criminals, bay area criminals, interstate criminals now.

the citizens are left with two choices. arm yourselves and take your chances with a jury or take your chances being a victim anywhere in this town, including our homes. this is a shocking event, interstate criminals invading a home.
there was a teachable moment in this, they complied with officers to drop their weapons or die and were not shot. thank god for that, otherwise jim davis would condemn the police, again.

I copy/pasted below the T-H story. This is a very, very creepy one, not the usual Vallejo crime scenario. I wouldn't be surprised if these three individuals have committed serious and similar crimes elsewhere, including in other states. And I wouldn't be surprised if they included murder either. I heard this going down on the scanner and the calltaker's quotes from that open cellphone line were blood-chilling. One was something to the effect that the speaker (one of the criminals overheard by the calltaker) "had done things like this before, only he usually doesn't leave anyone behind to talk; he usually burns the house down when he's done."

What the actual eff. Terrifying. I think this might be one of VPD's best busts in a loooong time.

Three out-of-towners allegedly rob Vallejo residents at gunpoint
Times-Herald staff report/
Posted: 10/13/2012 01:05:54 AM PDT

Three men were arrested Thursday night in connection with an armed home invasion robbery, Vallejo police said Friday.

At about 10:40 p.m., Vallejo and American Canyon police surrounded a home, 106 Cardinal Lane, on a report of a home invasion robbery.

The suspects entered the home, and held the five adult occupants at gunpoint, police said. They demanded money, jewelry and other items, while threatening to kill those in the home if they did not cooperate.

One of the occupants called police during the robbery and left the line open, police said, allowing the dispatcher to overhear one of the suspects making demands and threats, police said.

As police surrounded the home, they ordered the suspects to exit the home, and they complied. They were subsequently taken into custody. Money taken from the victims was also found on one of the suspects, police said.

No injuries were reported.

The suspects were identified as Kenneth Ray Heinze, 25, of Medford, Ore., James Epperson, 52, of Ashland, Ore., and Richard Fondren, 20, of Grand Junction, Colo.

They were booked into the Solano County jail.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is encouraged to contact Vallejo Police Detectives Bill Badour or Fabio Rodriguez at (800) 488-9383.

Plus they had real guns but somethin tells me someone will say they didn't get shot at because they are white, which is why they say 30 shots were fired at the 2 children or I mean one adult who dove on the (21yr old)child to save his life. Lets see if I am wrong!

They didn't "get shot" because their parents were probably married, they went to school and learned to comply with the police in situations such as this. "Hands up" means hands up unless your "culture" has taught you otherwise. Too bad though, it would be better for all around if the VPD had eliminated this future threat now instead of a year or so when your Solano Co. left-wing "judges" will let them out.

some people use the term racist to threaten other people. the use is so rampent now that it has lost is usefullness to all but the politicans. some people believe that they are entitled to take whatever they want from anybody [some call it stealing] and then cry racism when they get caught and if they can get just liberal bedwetter on the jury it works.
just stop robbing, doing drugs, pull up your pants aand get a job

I have known one of the guys that did this for 10 years and am shocked. He was always very laid back and cool, was also a preacher and held native American events in this area. He was going thru tough times and went back to your area where he grew up and lived most of his life. He had to hook up with his old friends or just got into drugs again. Really sorry for the people he robbed and glad they got him arrested before he or others got killed.
