Sacramento, CA - The U.S. Marshals Pacific Southwest Regional Fugitive Task Force (PSWRFTF) and Solano County Sheriffs Enforcement Team (SET) arrested 21 year old Thomas Andrew Myers wanted out of Lodi for attempted homicide and robbery.

Members of the U.S. Marshals PSWRFTF along with the Solano County SET deputies were conducting surveillance in the 600 block of Ohio St. in Vallejo for Myers. Around noon an individual matching Myers description and another man left the residence in a Ford Expedition. Deputies initiated a traffic stop in the 3000 block of Sonoma and the vehicle initially signaled to stop in the parking lot of a nearby business but then attempted to flee. The vehicle was blocked in and surrounded by deputies; the individuals surrendered and were taken into custody. The driver was positively identified as Myers who had been wanted since March 2012.

Deputies then went back to the residence on Ohio St. and conducted a probation search of the residence. During the search a semi-automatic handgun, scoped rifle and MAC-10 were found with ammunition along with methamphetamine. Two other individuals Judith Molina and Marcus Castro were subsequently arrested for methamphetamine possession.

Myers, Molina and Castro were booked into the Solano County Jail to await their initial appearances in court.

The U.S. Marshals PSWRFTF Sacramento division is comprised of the California Highway Patrol CHP, Stockton Police Department, California Department of Corrections Office of Correctional Safety Fugitive Apprehension Team, Sacramento County Probation Office, and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement ICE.
