Darn it! If this had been posted last night instead of tonight, I'd be $1,000 richer. Michael Teeters was at my work last night. He loitered around the place for about 20 minutes before he finally left.

I think that we all need to check our backyards every 15-20 minutes. From what I have been reading these 'tweeker types' seem to be drawn to them like a magnet. If you find one in your yard some night you can offer him/her a cookie.Then you can call Merle. Perhaps he can come over and counsel them on the error of their ways. lol. (Yes, Merle, we need better drug treatment programs, etc.) But personally, I'd call NPD to make sure no harm came to me or my family/property. See that's the thing, you have only a moment at the point a crime (possibly) taking place. In that moment you have to choose protecting the citizenry from being harmed. If the situation begins to unfold involving resistance or violently unyielding behavior on the part of the suspect you cannot namby-pamby around. Safety first for the law-abiding and law enforcement parties. It is not a perfect world.

I can see why her name is 'Krystal'. Look at her eyes! Who you ya gonna call? NPD, or Merle?
john s. mccullough May 19, 2012 at 02:18 PM
If one of these types shows up in my yard- I want NPD to send out officer Keener- Merle can stay home and whine all he wants...read on....

It must be terrible to have to go through life afraid , I pity you as much as I pity them ....

Benjamin Paz is has been arrested at least three times this year already, according to info from Napa police. Nothing violent, but he freaked out a guy at the Expo who found him naked in the men's room in January.
Jennifer Wesley May 19, 2012 at 04:51 PM
Paz also was caught shoplifting by an employee from the downtown Safeway. If memory serves me right, he threatened to assault her, also. He was arrested shortly after that, as well.
john s. mccullough May 19, 2012 at 05:13 PM
Jeffery- I personally don't live in the fear you allude to. I am capable of taking care of myself. I am speaking from the collective standpoint. There are many people that are to old, too young, or would otherwise be completely overmatched by many of the people/suspects, if you will, in question. These people often have violent histories and are found to armed with fire arms and/or knives. My point, and my only point, is that it is unreasonable to continually second-guess NPD for pursuing these fleeing individuals on to private property because they are pitiful and have issues that render them to be 'sad cases'. If NPD were to just 'let it slide' sooner or later inevitabley an innocent resident, hushand, wife, single mother or a child will suffer. NPD is doing their job by preventing the potential existence of such a circumstance from occuring. If they were to take a hands off attiude and such an incident were to occur, then the public out cry would be deafening- Where the cops? They are never around when you need them? I saw them at the do nut shop? Why don't go after the real problems and quit giving parking tickets? On and on. There are real issues and real problems on 'the streets'. Yes, we need better drug laws and treatment programs. That is a separate issue
john s. mccullough May 19, 2012 at 05:16 PM
Thanks for the info. I 'm just glad a kid didn't wander in!
john s. mccullough May 19, 2012 at 05:18 PM
Threatened a woman? Got it. Thanks for the comment. Care to read/comment on what I wrote below?
john s. mccullough May 19, 2012 at 05:22 PM
Continued- First you have to get those in need into programs before they harm someone else, whether that would be an innocent resident, or a peer. The nature of their addiction does not lend itself to seeking help on their own. They generally only comply with a court order to participate in a program. Those programs, no matter how well they are designed, will fail 9 out of 10 times because the attendees are not there as a result of the own enlightment and self-motivated desire to clean up. It is a very low yielding endeavor to force rehab on someone. They will relapse very soon after completion, fail their drug testing during the program, or seek a way to beat the testing. They turn it into a cat and mouse game. Which is also a decent description of what goes on on the streets. Only with different stakes. So Jeffery- Save your pity for our first innocent victim. It's just a matter of time!

Sounds like John is either a professional recovery counsellor or has been through extensive recovery himself to have such adamant knowledge about addicts and addictive behavior. He sounds close enough to correct, though.
Louisa Hufstader (Editor) May 19, 2012 at 06:26 PM
That was #2 of the three I mentioned, his robbery arrest: http://napa.patch.com/articles/alleged-safeway-robber-jailed #3 was for meth: http://napa.patch.com/articles/police-nab-napa-man-for-alleged-meth-possession. We haven't yet had a report that any of the arrests included a charge of making threats or assaulting anyone.
john s. mccullough May 19, 2012 at 10:48 PM
My job requires a certain amount of basic training in related areas. I would not say I am expert. The things I mention are considered very basic, fundamental knowledge. That's pretty much it. I also have some decades long friendships with people in law enforcement. I have also known some people who have gone 'down the tubes'. So my perceptions have become a bit more realistic.
john s. mccullough May 19, 2012 at 10:48 PM
Continued- Also, I have several occasions to visit Humbolt County (not what you think...lol) and have had a chance to observe what it's local culture has really spawned, giving me a chance to reflect on the long-term effects of the 60's. There are many pathetic, marginalized souls wandering around, inhabiting the streets and town squre areas (Arcadia, for instance). It is filthy, among other things. Lots of multi-generation abuse problems. A sad way of life for many. The Latino population has many connections available for drug use. For instance the Mexican government has no control over the importation of materials crucial to the production of meth. Recently, in I believe SE Mexico a bust was made of about 7 tons of meth! ( I want to say 15, but I would rather not be on the high side and seem to be exageratiing) Traveling in Mexico you can see entire rural communities whose cottage industry is meth production under very primative and dangerous conditions. This is not meant to be an observation of the Latino community at large, simply to opine that many pesonal friendships and family relation span the border and as such inevitabley lead to a trans-border issue. And we have many (U.S.) users here waiting for the goods as well. It is a huge problem. Simpling going on line you can can follow the shipping routes of the raw materials needed. Apparently in SE Asia and India (?) there are some super labs. I mean full blown factories.

Luisa- Wasn't there an attempted home invasion or assault of some kind on a resident reported on the Patch just the other day? I am fairly sure I read that. In the Browns Valley area? I should check but I am in a hurry right now. J
john s. mccullough May 19, 2012 at 10:55 PM
Waiting to score?
Louisa Hufstader (Editor) May 20, 2012 at 01:41 AM
Hi John: http://napa.patch.com/articles/armed-home-invasion-reported-in-browns-valley. We haven't learned of any updates since this was reported.
john s. mccullough May 20, 2012 at 11:51 PM
Louisa- Thanks for the follow-up. Anyhow, it's Sunday afternoon. And about 30-35 minutes ago I was vaguely aware of a loud noise- a crack sound, if you will, in the area of "The Queen". Perhaps a gunshot? That notion occurred to me because a few moments later I heard all kinds of sirens. Any clue? anybody?
Louisa Hufstader (Editor) May 22, 2012 at 06:44 AM
Jenn, I suspect he wasn't in the $1,000 range anyway; he was arrested Friday after a report of public urination: http://napa.patch.com/articles/napa-fugitive-jailed-after-taking-a-leak-cops-say
