Napa police responded to a report of people breaking into construction vehicles early Friday morning and, after a lawsuit from the Napa County Sheriff’s Department, two men were charged with robbery for stealing thousands of dollars worth of power tools, according to police.
The Napa Police Department received a report Friday morning of people breaking into vehicles near the 2400 block of Flagstone Drive within the city limits, police said. A charcoal-colored Infiniti FX35 was reported stolen, and Napa County Sheriff’s Deputies spotted the vehicle traveling about 100 miles per hour on Highway 29 near the Napa County Airport shortly afterwards, according to the police.
Deputies said the driver did not give in to attempts to flag the car and continued to drive south through American Canyon and Vallejo while passing other drivers at high speeds. The driver eventually pulled over on Highway 37 in Vallejo, and he and his passenger were arrested.
The car itself was not stolen, but deputies said they found several stolen power tools, including drills and air compressors, worth around $10,000, as well as tools for burglary.
