Manhunt Underway For Home Invasion Suspect

A manhunt is underway in the Florin Road area of Sacramento for a suspect following a viiolent [sic] home invasion.

Sacramento County Sheriff’s deputies say a suspect broke into a home on Florin Road and the homeowner fired several shots at the man.

The suspect then took off on foot.

Deputies are going door to door looking for the suspect in the area around Florin Road between Watt and Florin Perkins.

They have even brought out dogs to search the area.

It’s unclear if the suspect was hit by the gunfire.

Apparently the homeowner was not injured.

Homeowner shoots at man during attempted break-in

An alleged burglar left a critical piece of evidence behind when he attempted to break in to a south Sacramento home early Wednesday morning: his car.

James Villapando, 34, of Sacramento, parked his Toyota sedan in the driveway of a home on Florin Road, just west of south Watt Avenue, before allegedly attempting to enter the home through a window around 3:35 a.m., Sacramento County Sheriff’s Sgt. Tim Curran said.

The homeowner heard the man trying to get in, armed himself with a gun and fired several shots, Curran said.

Villapando was not injured and ran away from the home, leaving the car in the driveway, Curran said.

Deputies found Villapando hiding out in the area about two hours later.

Villapando, who was an at-large parolee, was arrested on suspicion of burglary and is being booked into Sacramento County Jail.
