A Napa pair were arrested Thursday on suspicion of stealing a bike, cell phone and backpack from a bicyclist in Napa.
Michael Ray Jaquith Jr., 25, and Jessica Louise Myatt, 30, were booked into Napa County Department of Corrections after Napa police allege they found the stolen items in a vehicle at an apartment complex in the 700 block of Lincoln Avenue.
According to police, an NPD officer was driving on Soscol Avenue just after 7 a.m. Thursday when he was flagged down by a robbery victim at Soscol and Lincoln avenues. The victim said he was robbed at knifepoint by two people in a white Tahoe Blazer.
Loss included a bike, cell phone and backpack, police said. Area checks were made and no one was located.
A short time later, a Napa officer was driving the victim home when the officer spotted a similar vehicle pulling into an apartment complex in the 700 block of Lincoln Avenue.
The officer provided the vehicle information to Napa Central Dispatch and another officer located the vehicle in the parking lot a short time later.
The vehicle was occupied by Michael Jaquith and Jessica Myatt. Property from the robbery was observed in the vehicle.
Jaquith was identified by the victim and most of the stolen property was recovered. Both suspects were arrested and booked into the Napa County Department of Corrections.
During the booking process, suspected methamphetamine was located inside of Jaquith’s belt at Napa County Department of Corrections, police said.
Investigations and the Special Enforcement Unit are following up on the possibility of other thefts committed by Jaquith and Myatt, police said.
