NAPA (CBS SF) — A Sonoma County Sheriff’s deputy arrested one of Napa County’s Most Wanted criminals early Thursday during a traffic stop, authorities said.
The Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office said 32-year-old Michael Dunne was arrested at around 1 a.m.
Dunne was among those listed on Napa County’s Most Wanted List after he failed to appear in court on two felony counts of possession for sale of a controlled substance and two felony special allegations of possession with a prior controlled substance conviction.
A deputy saw a green Jeep drive past him in the 5000 block of Highway 128 in Geyserville and noticed that the rear license plate could not be read. The deputy pulled over the car and spoke with the driver and passenger.
The driver, later identified as Dunne, initially gave a fake name to the deputy but did not have a driver’s license with him.
