A 26-year-old Napa man has been arrested for the third time this year after being listed on the Napa Valley Crime Stoppers list of fugitives.
John William Thompson was wanted for felony probation violation for possession of marijuana for sale and resisting arrest. He was arrested Nov. 27, according to the Napa County Sheriff's Office.
Thompson was listed by Crime Stoppers in February and arrested in Sacramento in May; listed again in June as wanted for felony marijuana sales and resisting arrest and arrested again in August.
The charges stem from a in which police said Thompson fled after a traffic stop on Freeway Drive and had a large amount of marijuana when they caught up with him. At that time, he was already a fugitive with two outstanding warrants.

Samuel Kain Shanks, 36, listed in September as wanted for felony possession of a controlled substance, was arrested Nov. 27 in El Cerrito Police Department and placed in custody in Contra Costa County.
George Juarez, 37, listed earlier this month as wanted on felony warrants for second-degree burglary and possession of a controlled substance, was arrested Nov. 28 by the Butte County Sheriff's Department and was awaiting transportation to the Napa County Department of Corrections.
Crime Stoppers, a private nonprofit that partners with law enforcement and the media to publicize wanted fugitives, offers no-questions-asked cash rewards of up to $1,000 in exchange for tips leading to arrests.
