The Fairfield Police Department is asking for the public’s help regarding the theft of musical instruments from Armijo High School.  On Monday, April 10, 2017, staff at Armijo High School discovered a significant amount of musical instruments missing from the band room on campus.  The crime was reported to the Armijo High School Resource Officer, who began the investigation with the assistance of the Fairfield Police Department’s Investigations Bureau.  The theft occurred sometime between the evening of Friday, April 7, 2017, and Monday morning, April 10, 2017. 
 
The stolen property consisted of dozens of brass and woodwind instruments, with most contained in individual cases. Most of the instruments are school property, although several are owned by individual students.  
 
On Wednesday, April 12, 2017, the detectives from our Investigations Bureau with the help of our patrol officers developed a lead in the case.  Detectives obtained a search warrant for a home located in the 300 block of Utah Street.  At about 2:45 p.m., detectives served the search warrant on the residence and found two of the stolen instruments, worth an estimated $10,000. One of the instruments recovered was an antique, 100-year-old English Horn. Detectives returned the recovered instruments to Armijo High School staff today.
 
As a result of the search warrant and subsequent interviews, detectives arrested a 17-year-old male Pacifica resident for felony possession of stolen property.  His identity is being withheld due to his age. 
 
Many of the stolen items were in cases clearly marked as being the property of either Armijo High School or the Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District. We recommend that people scrutinize purchase offers of musical instruments marked as school property, and contact the Fairfield Police Department if anything looks suspicious.
 
We are asking anyone with information about this theft to contact the Fairfield Police Department's Investigations Bureau at 707-428-7600.  You can also call our Tip Line at 707-428-7345, Solano CrimeStoppers at 707-644-7867, or Text “TIP FAIRFIELDPD” followed by your message to 888777.  Callers and texters can remain anonymous.
