VACAVILLE — Police arrested one person after residents on the 500 block of Buck Avenue came home and saw a stranger in their backyard Friday morning.
After a brief pursuit, officers made contact with 19-year-old Ben Sapp at an apartment complex on the 400 block of Monte Vista Avenue, according to a news release from the police department.
Initially, Sapp represented himself with the names and birthdays of other people, police said. Eventually, officers positively tied Sapp to the prowling incident and he was placed under arrest. After his arrest, his true identity was confirmed and methamphetamine was found in his pants pocket, the release said.
Sapp was also identified as one of the subjects who ran from a car stop that was initiated by a California Highway Patrol Thursday night in Vacaville, the release said.
Sapp was booked into the county jail on suspicion of prowling, falsely impersonating another and possession of methamphetamine.
Police didn’t know what Sapp’s intents were while prowling in the backyard or if he is related to any of the other daytime residential burglaries that have occurred over the past several months, the release said.
Those cases are still being investigated. Anyone with any information about any burglaries is asked to call the police department at 449-5200.
