LAKEPORT, Calif. – Police are searching for two Fairfield residents alleged to have been involved in a kidnapping and vehicle theft.
Lakeport Police reported that they are looking for John David Jaquint Jr., 28, and Danielle Weisler, who is believed to be between 25 and 30 years old.
Jaquint is said to be armed and dangerous, according to Lt. Jason Ferguson.
Ferguson said that at 10:20 a.m. Monday Lakeport Police officers responded to a reported vehicle theft from the parking lot of the District Attorney’s Office.
Upon their arrival officers learned that a female reported being kidnapped from Fairfield on Sunday by Jaquint, her estranged boyfriend, and Weisler, Ferguson said.
Ferguson said the alleged victim told the officers that she was held at gunpoint against her will and threatened during the night while in a motel room in Fairfield.
She reported she was driven to Lake County Monday morning, in her vehicle, because both she and Jaquint had court proceedings, according to Ferguson.
The alleged victim told police that as Jaquint left for the courtroom, she exited her vehicle and contacted courthouse security, who in turn contacted police, Ferguson said.
She told officers that Jaquint walked out of court and saw her speaking to security so he got into her vehicle, driven by Weisler, and fled the area, according to Ferguson.
He said the alleged victim described her vehicle as being a 2004 burgundy-colored Volvo sedan bearing California license 6XUZ573 with a cracked front windshield.
The victim reported that Jaquint is in possession of a double barreled shotgun which he keeps in the back seat, Ferguson said.
John David Jaquint Jr. is described as a white male adult, 5 feet 10 inches tall, 210 pounds, bald, with partial sleeve tattoos on both arms and tattoos on his left side chest.
According to the alleged victim Jaquint is affiliated with the Aryan Brotherhood, a white supremacist prison gang, and is considered armed and dangerous.
Danielle Weisler is described as a white female adult, 5 feet 5 inches tall, 180 pounds with blonde hair and dark framed eyeglasses.
As part of the investigation, officers requested a be on the look out for the vehicle through Lake County Central Dispatch, Ferguson said.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information is asked to contact the Lakeport Police Department at 707-263-5491.
Note: The original press release incorrectly stated the make of the vehicle. Police reported Monday night that it was, in fact, a late model Volvo sedan.
