Two young Napa men who have been in previous trouble with the law were arrested Friday morning as they allegedly clambered out the back window of an empty house in which they had been sleeping, according to an arrest summary from the City of Napa Police Department:
On 11-30-12, at 0915hrs NPD Officers responded to the 400 block of Brown Street on a reported burglary.
The suspects were allegedly still inside the residence. Upon arrival officers learned the residence was currently vacant and two unknown suspects were seen inside sleeping.
Officers set a perimeter on the residence and called the suspects out. Both suspects attempted to flee the scene by climbing out a rear window of the residence. They were both apprehended by police.
The suspects were identified as Alex J Aultman (DOB 11-22-92 a Napa resident) and Manuel M Ochoa (DOB 11-2-93 a Napa resident).
Alex was found to be on probation and Manuel was on OR release for a prior burglary.
Inside the residence the suspects opened a can of paint and poured it out.
Aultman was found to have stolen property (credit cards) on his person from an unreported vehicle burglary (additional follow-up pending).
Aultman was named to the Napa Valley Crime Stoppers wanted list in 2011 as sought for felony rape, and was subsequently arrested.
Ochoa was arrested last month on suspicion of stealing from Kohl's.
Both were booked at the Napa County Department of Corrections on suspicion of trespassing, vandalism, resisting officers and violating probation. Ochoa faces the additional charge of committing a crime while released on his own recognizance.
