By From page A4 | October 23, 2013

The Yolo County District Attorney’s Office announced the convictions of two men last week for a separate Davis-area crimes.

A jury found 32-year-old Ronald Steven McNair of Roseville guilty of residential burglary Thursday for his role in the June 20 break-in of a North Davis Meadows home, from which thousands of dollars in property had been taken, District Attorney Jeff Reisig said in a news release.

Yolo County sheriff’s investigators tracked down McNair and his alleged accomplice, Matthew Lee Boyle, using surveillance video from a neighbor’s home that captured the burglary in progress, as well as a fingerprint from a pair of sunglasses left at the crime scene, Reisig said.

McNair, who has three prior prison terms and two strikes on his record, faces up to 19 years in prison at his Nov. 21 sentencing. Boyle is due to be arraigned in the case on Oct. 30.

On Friday, a jury convicted West Sacramento resident Francisco Gonzalez, 28, on charges of prowling on private property and possession of burglary tools.

According to Reisig, Gonzalez was arrested on the night of June 26 after residents of a Davis apartment complex saw him and another man peering into cars with a flashlight. Police reportedly found him in possession of a bolt cutter and a shaved key, both suspected burglary tools.

Gonzalez — already on felony probation for possessing a loaded, concealed firearm and transportation of controlled substances — was sentenced to a year of probation and 20 days in county jail following his conviction, Reisig said.

Yolo County Public Defender Tracie Olson, whose office represented both defendants, declined to comment on the convictions.
