Kevin Michael Hagan, 21, was arrested Wednesday morning while allegedly burglarizing another home roughly two miles from Pelosi's vineyard near St. Helena, according to Captain Tracey Stuart of the Napa County Sheriff's Office.

Stuart described Hagan as a "sort-of transient" from Napa who was already on probation for grand theft, among other things, and has admitted to burglarizing six homes in the area since Halloween. No political motivations are suspected in the case.


"It looks like it was just a burglary, but he didn't know whose house it was," Stuart said by phone Thursday. "She wasn't targeted." 

Pelosi's home was burglarized twice this week — once Monday and again early Tuesday morning. Hagan, at the time of his arrest, was wearing a watch taken from Pelosi's home, Stuart said.

No one was home at the time of the break-ins — the second of which fell on Election Day — and it remains unclear if anything was taken beyond the watch, Stuart said.

Hagan has been charged with several counts of burglary, vandalism, violation of probation and possession of stolen property, Stuart said. He remains in custody awaiting an appearance before a judge.

St. Helena is roughly 60 miles north of San Francisco, where Pelosi has her primary residence.
