American Canyon Police announced the arrest of a Fairfield man in connection with a string of vehicle burglaries early Friday morning.

Napa County sheriff's detectives detained Michael Anthony Sean Phan-Sanchez, 18, at 6:06 p.m. Friday, less than 15 hours after numerous car windows were smashed in south American Canyon, police said in a Facebook announcement. Phan-Sanchez was booked into the Napa County jail on 10 counts of suspected vehicle burglary and 12 counts of suspected vandalism, along with allegations of criminal conspiracy and possessing stolen property.

Detectives contacted Phan-Sanchez while he was driving in the Lopes Road area of Cordelia, according to Lt. Don Maiden of the sheriff's office. Phan-Sanchez was driving the same vehicle that was captured on video committing the burglaries, and was in possession of stolen property from the incidents as well as other stolen items that were found in his vehicle, Maiden said in an email.

Before the arrest, police said that the La Vigne neighborhood — located south of American Road and east of Flosden Road, just north of Vallejo city limits — and neighborhoods east of Shenandoah Park had been most affected, with 12 vehicles identified as burglary targets. The department believes the vehicle windows were smashed between about 3 and 5 a.m. Friday morning, though the extent of losses was not immediately known.

Anyone with information about the burglaries is asked to contact American Canyon Police at 707-551-0600.
