Burglary, kidnapping suspect sentenced to 5 years in prison | Crime
NAPOLEON, OH (Toledo News Now) - A man who police say triggered a standoff and a daylong manhunt has been sentenced to 5 years in prison.
Gilberto Villarreal, 27, was sentenced to 5 years in prison for aggravated burglary in Henry County Common Pleas Court.
Villarreal was arrested in November after police said at the time he had broken into a woman’s home and may have kidnapped her. The woman, 24-year-old Natalie Rose McCoy, was later found unharmed with Villarreal. Villarreal never faced kidnapping charges in the case.
The manhunt began on November 12 when a neighbor called police after a confrontation with Villarreal. Police believed Villarreal was in a Napoleon manufactured home and proceeded as if there were an armed standoff for several hours. Around 4 p.m. on November 12 they made entry into the home and found no one inside.
Villarreal and McCoy were found in Paulding County the following day.
