Vallejo hit by a series of back-to-back home invasions http://www.timesheraldonline.com/news/ci_2294...
Vallejo police made several arrests in a string of unrelated afternoon illegal home entries Wednesday.
Shortly after 2 p.m., police encountered two people inside a vacant home in the 100 block of Franklin Street who were reportedly stealing electricity from a neighboring house, Lt. Sid DeJesus said.
Victor Cano was arrested on suspicion of the theft charge, in addition to a Napa County warrant for suspected copper theft, DeJesus said. The second person inside the home, an unidentified female, was not arrested, police said. Cano’s age and city of residence were not immediately available Wednesday.
Then, just before 3 p.m., a woman called police reporting that she had come home to the 17000 block of Sacramento Street to find that a man had apparently “made himself at home” in a trailer on her property, DeJesus said. The man, apprehended by police after a short foot chase by nearby Solano County Sheriff’s deputies, was placed under citizen’s arrest for suspected misdemeanor trespassing. Police identified the suspect as Julio Gomez, 30, of Vallejo, adding that he was also suspected of probation violation.
About two hours later, around 5:11 p.m., residents returning home saw two men at the back of their house in the 100 block of Halabuk Court. The suspects, later identified as Ryan Dees, a 25-year-old transient, and Patrick Nolan, 29, of San Jose, were chased from the yard by one resident, while the Advertisement
other called police. The men were
tracked to the area near Cave Elementary School, where police arrested them. Both are suspected of attempted burglary and conspiracy.
And then, just before 6 p.m., police were advised of an in-progress residential burglary on the 1600 block of Magazine Street, with a suspect reportedly seen running down a driveway carrying a television set. The suspect in this incident was still at large Wednesday night, DeJesus said, and police were investigating a report of a white import vehicle parked in front of the building.
