A Yountville landlord was in custody Monday at Napa County Department of Corrections following his arrest Sunday in connection with an incident involving two of his tenants.
Napa County Sheriff's Deputy Cal Valente confirmed that Richard Figueroa, 51, of Yountville was still in the jail Monday after being booked on Sunday on suspicion of making criminal threats and public intoxication.
Valente, who is based at the Yountville sheriff's station, confirmed that Figueroa was arrested at about 12:45 p.m. Sunday at a rented house in the 6600 block of Yount Street.
Tenants at the home, which is owned by Figueroa, told deputies that they had been out and returned to their home to find that Figueroa, who lives in a neighboring home, had allegedly turned off the water and electricity while they were away.
They confronted Figueroa, according to deputies. During the confrontation, Figueroa allegedly ran at them and threatened to assault them, deputies said.
