DIXON, CA - A Fairfield man is facing a long list of charges after he allegedly fled police with a child, woman, drugs and a loaded weapon in his vehicle Monday night.

According to the Dixon Police Department, officers were dispatched to the 1200 block of Stratford Avenue at approximately 5:30 p.m. in response to a man in the area who was wanted on outstanding felony warrants in Solano and Marin Counties.

When the first officer arrived at the location, 33-year-old Curtis Sanders of Fairfield fled in his vehicle, despite the officer's orders to stop, said police.

The officer pursued for a short distance until Sanders attempted to make a left turn from southbound N. Lincoln St. onto eastbound West H St., spun out, hit a curb and came to a stop in the lawn area of Northwest Park, said police.

According to police, Sanders got out of the vehicle and fled on foot. He was located a short while later hiding at a nearby home and arrested without further incident.

While officers were searching for Sanders, a woman and child who were both inside the vehicle during the pursuit, left the scene, said police.  Both were located soon thereafter. 

A subsequent investigation of Sanders' vehicle returned a large quantity of methamphetamine and a loaded gun, police said.

Sanders was booked into the Solano County Jail on the following charges:

- Felon in possession of firearm
- Carry concealed firearm
- Possess loaded firearm
- Possession of controlled substance (methamphetamine)
- Possess controlled substances for sale
- Transportation of controlled substance
- Child endangerment
- Possess firearm while possessing controlled substance
- Hit and run
- Evading peace officer, reckless driving
- Resist arrest
- Possess narcotics paraphernalia

Sanders was also booked for the felony warrant in Solano County and two felony warrants out of Marin County for drug possession and reckless driving.

The Dixon Police Dept. asked anyone with more information on the incident to call 707-678-7070 or 707-678-7080.
