A 35-year-old man was arrested Thanksgiving morning in connection with reported vehicle break-ins, according to American Canyon Police.

At 10:15 a.m., officers received reports from residents about a man looking inside cars and checking their doors on the north side of American Canyon, police said in a news release. 

The officers saw a vehicle driven by Sean Matthew Abeyta of Vallejo and pursued it down southbound Highway 29 to the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and Spa at 3600 Broadway St., where the driver pulled into the parking lot, ran out and jumped a fence into a nearby apartment complex, according to police. After apartment residents pointed police toward Abeyta, officers pursued on foot and finally detained him, according to the statement.

Abeyta was booked into the Napa County jail for investigation of felony evasion of police officers, resisting arrest, vehicle theft and misdemeanor methamphetamine possession. The vehicle he was driving was reported stolen from Pittsburg in Contra Costa County, police said.

Abeyta also was on probation in Solano County for vehicle theft and possessing stolen property, according to police.

No officers were reported injured in the American Canyon incident.
