Through their investigation, deputies determined that Felchle, formerly of Napa, was hiding out at a residence on Maureen Drive in Vallejo. Deputies surrounded the home along with Vallejo Police on Feb. 8. Felchle was taken into custody without incident. He was booked at the Napa County jail on suspicion of possession of heroin, possession of meth, attempted destruction of evidence and committing a felony while out on bail.

Felchle’s wife, Jessica Louise Myatt, 35, who was also at the home, was arrested and booked in Napa on suspicion of being an accessory to evasion.
