Napa Police: Felon with Ammo Arrested on Locust

A day after wounded Napa gang member Christopher Anguiano, 20, was found in the 2100 block of Locust Street, 42-year-old Miguel Anguiano was arrested in the same neighborhood, Napa police said Friday.

Napa police are reporting the arrest on Locust Street of a 42-year-old Napa man with the same surname as that of a stabbing victim found in the same block Wednesday afternoon.

According to an arrest summary from the City of Napa Police Department, a call came in shortly after 3 p.m. to report an intoxicated person with ammunition in the 2100 block of Locust:

The person reporting this incident identified the subject as Miguel Anguiano (42 yrs. of Napa).

Officers arrived and saw Anguiano place something behind some shrubs at this location.

An Officer checked this area and located a speed loader with ammunition. A speed loader is used to rapidly load ammunition into a revolver handgun.

Anguiano is prohibited from possessing ammunition based on past criminal convictions. Aguiano is also on probation.

He was arrested and booked at the Napa County Department of Corrections on suspicion of being a felon in possession of ammunition and violating probation, police said.

Anguiano's arrest came just over 24 hours after police and firefighters responded to a stabbing victim in the same block of Locust Street.

According to a police announcement issued Thursday afternoon,

On January 2, 2013 at 1431hrs. the Napa Police Department and the Napa Fire Department responded to the report of a stabbing in the 2100 block of Locust Street. Officers located the victim, Christopher Anguiano seated in a seat in the garage. He was bleeding from a stab wound to his chest area. Anguiano was not cooperative and refused to provide any details regarding the incident or where the incident took place.

Family members at the scene reported that a black vehicle had dropped Anguiano off at their residence and that he had walked to the house. It is unknown the motive for this fight.

It is believed that the incident may have occurred in the Imola Ave area near Gasser Drive. A citizen had reported seeing a fight between two male subjects in this area about one hour before Anguiano arrived on Locust. One of the responsibles left in a vehicle and the other left on foot.

The victim was transported to the Queen of the Valley Hospital where he is being treated for a stab wound. The stabbing investigation is assigned to the Special Enforcement Unit of the Napa Police Department. If you have any information in regards to the incident please contact Officer Keri Sedgley at (707) 258-7879 or 258-7880 ext 7879.

Capt. Debbie Peecook told Napa Valley Patch reporter Marsha Dorgan Thursday morning that Christopher Anguiano is a known gang member. No arrests have been reported in connection with his stabbing.

Do not feed the trolls Bucket...I'm with you though, I much preferred sleepy little Napa and people who settled their issues at worst, with fists. Unfortunately today's population of young people seem to get more violent,less trusting of police, less respectful of adults, with each generation. Two working parents, single parents, poverty, horrible television shows, adults making excuses for their bad behavior, and who knows what else are contributors I suppose. These sets of circumstances weren't considered the 'norm' back in the day when most kids wouldn't dream of mouthing off to adults. So different today.

Well can't trust the youth, can't trust the parents/guardians, can't trust the society around them, let's just have everyone stop reproducing right now than, that should solve the problem than right?

Spoken like a kid, Kristy....It's not about trust, it's about knowing right from wrong. Being a asset instead of a plague on society.

I trust the youth, parents/guardians and society. I give people chances. Don't judge them right off. When people see that in you, they tend to put their guards down themselves. Now, I don't trust some individuals, because they, themselves, have broken it. Don't blame everyone, over one's faults.
