Three Napa County business employees were indicted last week by a special grand jury on felony residential burglary, grand theft and mortgage security fraud charges, Napa County District Attorney Gary Lieberstein announced today. The 70 alleged felonies were committed against six people since 2010, Lieberstein said. The indictment was returned after a two-day confidential hearing and presented to Judge Michael Williams, Lieberstein said in a news release.
Two employees of the Napa County District Attorney’s Office today said they could not provide more information about the indictment that was returned in Napa County Superior Court on Oct. 2, and Lieberstein was unavailable for further comment. Mario Lopez Macias is charged with 19 counts of residential burglary, 20 counts of grand theft, 21 counts of mortgage securities fraud and one count of dissuading a witness. His bail is $250,000, Lieberstein said. Francisco Perez Deleon is charged with five counts of residential burglary, five counts of grand theft and six counts of mortgage securities fraud.
His bail is $100,000, Lieberstein said. Cynthia Espinoza is charged with five counts of mortgage securities fraud and her bail is $25,000, Lieberstein said. The ages and residences of the defendants were not disclosed. Lieberstein said arrest warrants were issued for the three defendants and they were arrested when they appeared in court. They are scheduled to enter pleas in Napa County Superior Court on Friday.
