Pelosi Burglar Arrested, Napa Authorities Say

A Napa man has admitted to committing six burglaries including two at Nancy Pelosi's home outside St. Helena, according to the Napa County Sheriff's Office. Reported by Bay City News Service.

A Napa man was arrested this morning on suspicion of burglarizing six residences, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's St. Helena house twice, a Napa County sheriff's captain said.

The five burglaries in Napa County and one in Solano County occurred in the past week, Capt. Tracey Stuart said.

The suspect, Kevin Michael Hagan, 21, admitted the six burglaries since Halloween, including those at Pelosi's residence on Zinfandel Lane outside St. Helena on Nov. 5 and 6, Stuart said.

Deputies found a glass door to the main Pelosi residence and a glass door to the pool house had been smashed when they responded to an alarm there around 2:50 p.m. on Nov. 5.

No one was home at the time and it's unknown what was taken, Stuart said.

On Nov. 6 at 9:50 a.m., a caretaker at the Pelosi home discovered plywood that was placed over the broken glass doors the day before had been removed, and someone entered the main house and pool house, Stuart said.

It appeared someone looked through drawers and cabinets, Stuart said.

Sheriff's deputies responded at 10:10 a.m. today to a residence at 2150 Silverado Trail outside St. Helena after a caretaker found an upstairs door open and a locked bedroom door, Stuart said.

Thinking someone might be inside the house, the caretaker called police, Stuart said.

A sheriff's deputy discovered a window had been removed and a suspect was inside the house, Stuart said.

Hagan was found and admitted burglarizing the Pelosi residence twice and two other properties on Zinfandel Lane, Stuart said.

Stuart said Hagan did not realize it was Pelosi's home the first time he burglarized it but he was aware the second time.

Hagan took deputies to the properties and he was arrested on suspicion of 10 counts of burglary, felony vandalism and a violation of probation for prior burglaries and thefts, Stuart said.

Hagan had a watch and coin collection taken from the Pelosi residence and Bose headphones taken from another victim's residence, Stuart

He was booked into the Napa County jail.

Six burglaries in this past week? Mr. Hagan has been busy. I wonder how many other homes he's broken into? Thanks for catching up with him, Napa County Sheriffs.
