    This photo provided by Napa County Sheriff's Office shows Kevin Michael Hagan, who was arrested Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, after a deputy found him at a St. Helena, Calif., home where a break-in was reported. Hagan is suspected of breaking into House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's home.

    A Northern California man was arrested Wednesday morning on suspicion of burglarizing six residences, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's Napa Valley house twice, a Napa County sheriff's captain said.

    The five burglaries in Napa County and one in Solano County occurred in the past week, according to Capt. Tracy Stuart.

    The suspect, Kevin Michael Hagan, 21, admitted to six burglaries since Halloween, including those at Pelosi's residence in St. Helena on Nov. 5 and 6, Stuart said.

    Deputies found a glass door to the main Pelosi residence and a glass door to the pool house had been smashed when they responded to an alarm there around 2:50 p.m. on Nov. 5.

    No one was home at the time and it's unknown what was taken, Stuart said.

    On Nov. 6 at 9:50 a.m., a caretaker at the Pelosi home discovered plywood that was placed over the broken glass doors the day before had been removed. According to Stuart, someone had entered the main house and pool house, and it appeared as though someone had rifled through the drawers and cabinets.

    That same morning, sherrif's deputies responded to a nearby residence after a caretaker found an upstairs door open and a locked bedroom door.

     

    A sheriff's deputy discovered a window had been removed and a suspect was inside the house.

    Hagan was found and admitted to police that he burglarized the Pelosi residence twice, in addition to two other nearby properties.

    Stuart said Hagan did not realize it was Pelosi's home the first time he burglarized it but he was aware the second time.

    Hagan took deputies to the properties he had burglurazed and was subsequently arrested on suspicion of 10 counts of burglary, felony vandalism and a violation of probation for prior burglaries and thefts.

    Hagan had a watch and coin collection taken from the Pelosi residence and Bose headphones taken from another victim's residence, Stuart said. He was booked into the Napa County jail.
