A 24-year-old man was arrested for murder in Napa on Friday afternoon, a police spokesman said today. Adrian Madrigal, 24, was spotted by a California Highway Patrol officer driving a black Chevy Trailblazer with no license plates at about 4:55 p.m., according to Napa police. The officer pulled Madrigal over and learned through the Department of Motor Vehicles that the vehicle was owned by a Napa resident, police said.

Napa police and sheriff’s deputies went to the owner’s home in the 1100 block of Hayes Street and reportedly found smears of blood on a back door, police said. Officers entered the home and found the victim of a homicide, police said. The exact cause of death remains under investigation and the victim’s identity was not being released, police said. Madrigal, a transient, was subsequently arrested for murder, robbery, burglary, vehicle theft, and violating probation. The Napa County Major Crimes Task Force is investigating the case.
