Fairfield Boy Honored for Preventing a Crime

FAIRFIELD (KRON) — See something? Say something. Fairfield police recognized a 10-year old boy and his father last week for doing just that.

Nathaniel Biggs was visiting the Cordelia branch of the Solano County Library on Sept. 15 when he saw a friend put a semi-automatic handgun into a backpack. When Nathaniel’s father Jason picked him up at the library, Nathaniel told his father about what he had seen, and Jason called Fairfield police.

Officers responded and located and detained Nathaniel’s friend without incident. Officers also located the handgun and a fixed blade knife and a Shuriken in the backpack of Nathaniel’s friend.

Police said because of the information provided by Jason and Nathaniel, police were able to recover an illegally possessed and stolen
firearm.

The pair was honored Wednesday by Fairfield police, who wrote on the department’s Facebook page that the case was “a perfect example of what can be accomplished when alert citizens speak up and partner with the Police Department.”
