MINIMAL LOOTING REPORTED IN NAPA AS A RESULT OF THE WILDFIRES


Napa County District Attorney Allison Haley announced today:

Despite widespread concern of looting, there have been minimal reports of looting in Napa as a result of the wildfires. There has been strong law enforcement presence around the perimeter of the fire which has likely deterred criminals from taking advantage of this tragedy.

 

At this time, there have been less than five arrests of suspected looters in the county by law enforcement since the onset of fires on October 8, 2017.

 

If you suspect someone is looting, call 911 or your local law enforcement agency. If you return to your home and believe that items have been stolen, call your local law enforcement agency immediately. The District Attorney’s Office is committed to seeking swift and certain consequences to those who exploit those made vulnerable by the wildfires.

 

Any questions may be directed to Chief Investigator Mike Donovan.


The Board of Supervisors and staff of Napa County are dedicated to preserving and sustaining Napa County for present and future generations as a community with generous open space, a thriving agricultural industry and a quality human and natural environment.
