American Canyon Police arrested a 33-year-old transient from Vallejo after he was found lurking by a hotel.

Police got a call at 11 a.m. Sunday from the hotel staff that a suspicious person was loitering around the Holiday Inn on Main Street, Police Chief Oscar Ortiz said.

Police arrested Kenneth Wayne Faul who was found next to a room window where the screen had been removed, Ortiz said.

Faul had credit cards and a Social Security card that were issued to others. Several syringes and a glass methamphetamine smoking pipe were confiscated, Ortiz said. 

Faul was booked into the Napa County jail for possible charges of possessing ID theft information and possession of drug paraphernalia.
