Redding, California- On Wednesday, August 7th, Child and Family Services along with Redding Police Officers and a Shasta Interagency Narcotics Task Force (SINTF) Agent were conducting a welfare check on two juveniles living in a home in the 2900 block of Polk Street in Redding, California.

The welfare check led to the discovery of Methamphetamine and Heroin use in the home in the presence of the children, resulting in the children being taken into protective custody.

An Occupant of the home, 35-year old David Capelli was identified by Officers as being a suspect in a child endangerment investigation according to an article by  KRCR NEWS.

A Further  search of Capelli’s Criminal history revealed that he had a non-extraditable 2005 Felony Arrest Warrant out of  Skagit County Washington  for 3rd Degree rape of a child and 3rd Degree child molestation.

A SINTF agent worked with the Skagit County Sheriff’s Office and the Skagit County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office  to obtain a motion and order to extend extradition nationwide for the warrant. After the Extradition order was approved, SINTF agents with assistance from the Redding Police Department Neighborhood Unit took Capelli into custody without incident.

David Capelli was booked into the Shasta County Jail and is awaiting extradition to Skagit County, Washington to face his 2005 Child Rape and Molestation Charges.
