After a Napa Police Department detective tracked him down via his court-ordered global positioning device, a 36-year-old homeless man was arrested Friday morning on suspicion of violating his parole by failing to register as a sexually violent predator, according to an arrest summary from the police department:
Joshua Duran (36 yrs. Transient) is a registered sex offender within Napa County.
A Detective who monitors the ongoing registration of sex offenders, noticed that Duran had not registered with the Napa Police Department within the past 30 days, as in accordance with his registration requirements.
The Detective contacted State Parole and accessed Duran’s GPS device which gave his current location. GPS information showed Duran to be at a residence in the 1600 block of Mary C Drive.
The Detective went to this address and located Duran. Duran was arrested for not registering and violating his parole. Duran was booked into Napa County Department of Corrections.
Arrest information does not indicate a conviction.
