Authorities are looking for a male who has been entering homes in Yountville overnight since May 22. The suspect is described as a white, thin male, 5 feet 5 inches who wears wearing black clothes. He entered a woman’s Rancho de Napa residence around 1:50 a.m. on May 22. When the woman woke up, the intruder claimed he was her grandson and left the residence, Napa County sheriff’s Capt. Tracey Stuart said.
On Saturday around 9:30 p.m. a Rancho de Napa man heard his screen door bang shut and thought it was the wind. In the morning he discovered his wallet and keys were missing off the dining room table, Stuart said. Sheriff’s deputies responded around 5 a.m. today to a report about a suspicious man trying to open the doors of two Ranch de Napa residences.
The intruder entered the home of a third residence and was confronted by a woman who lives there, Stuart said.The intruder called the woman “granny” and said his name was “Jamie”, Stuart said. The man ran away when the woman shoved him out the back door. The intruder did not force entry into the homes, and the sheriff’s office is urging Yountville residents to lock their doors and windows even when they are home.
Anyone who sees a suspicious person is asked to call the sheriff’s dispatch number at (707) 253-4451, or call 911 if someone is trying to get in a residence.Calling the sheriff’s office’s Yountville substation directly will cause a delayed response if there are no deputies in that office at the time, Stuart said.
