A Napa man was arrested Friday morning in connection with thefts from two local stores, according to police.
At 9:24 a.m., several people flagged down a Napa Police patrol car in the 1100 block of Lincoln Avenue to notify the officer of a man who had broken a window at a nearby business, the department said in a news release. One witness said the man had smashed the window of a Metro PCS cellphone shop, entered, and then ran north along Brown Street, according to police.
The officer stopped Marcus Anthony Parra, 26, and arrested him, the department said.
At Parra’s feet was a cellphone with a security cord attached, and inside his backpack were an aluminum baseball bat and a new, unopened set of headphones, according to police. He admitted to stealing the phone from the Metro PCS branch, and to stealing the bat and headphones from the Target discount store at 205 Soscol Ave., the department said.
Parra was booked into the Napa County jail on suspicion of two counts of burglary.
