A fugitive from Oregon who had been jailed twice recently in Napa County on suspicion of residential burglaries was arrested yet again Tuesday at his residence in the 3100 block of Browns Valley Road, according to the Napa County Sheriff’s Office.
On Tuesday, at about 7:30 p.m., deputies went to Levi Gruenhagen’s residence to serve a parole violation warrant from Oregon. When they knocked on the front door, Gruenhagen allegedly tried to run out the back of the residence and hide in a creek nearby, Capt. Leroy Anderson. But a K-9 found him and he did not resist, he said.
Gruenhagen, 32, was one of two suspects arrested twice earlier this month in connection with residential burglaries in east Napa and at Lake Berryessa, authorities said. He had been released on $25,000 bail after pleading not guilty to burglary and receiving stolen property.
Gruenhagen was taken into custody and booked into the Napa County jail, Anderson said. He may be extradited to Oregon for the parole violation, he said.
According to Community Corrections in Oregon, Gruenhagen is wanted on charges that include a weapons violation.
