Roseville Crime Report Weekly Update
The City of Roseville Police Department's weekly crime report for November 27, 2012.
Police Beat 1: Northeast Roseville
Harding/Galleria area, shed burglarized: Between November 16 and 19,
someone broke into a shop building in the 400 block of Berry Street,
and took a leaf-blower.
East Roseville Parkway, recovered stolen vehicle and property: At 9
p.m. November 18, a police cadet came across an unoccupied car with a
broken axle, blocking a lane of traffic on Taylor Road near Eureka
Road. The cadet contacted the registered owner in Antelope, and found
that the vehicle had been stolen from in front of his house within
the previous few hours. The cadet also discovered a tool bag and
stereo face plate inside the car, which had recently been stolen from
a car in Rocklin. Neither victim knew their property had been stolen
until the cadet contacted them.
Galleria mall area, fight and later vandalism: At about 12:30 a.m. on
"Black Friday" morning (November 23), a fight broke out on the upper
level of the mall between two groups of teenagers and young adults.
We later learned that the two groups were acquainted with each other
and had been bumping into each other and exchanging insults before
the fight broke out. By the time officers arrived the fighters had
dispersed. The fight was recorded by witnesses with cell phones and
uploaded onto YouTube. Early media reports theorized that the fight
involved shoppers fighting over underwear and other merchandise, but
that doesn't appear to have been the case.
At 5 a.m. that morning, a Roseville teenager reported to
police that someone had come to his home in central Roseville
and beat on a family car with baseball bats and other objects,
causing extensive damage. Officers learned that the teen had been
involved in the earlier fight at the mall. It appears that the other
group involved in the fight went to his house and vandalized the
vehicle. Officers continued to investigate, and late Friday night
went to a house in Citrus Heights and arrested four people on
suspicion of felony vandalism and other related charges: A
21-year-old male, an 18-year-old female, and a 16-year-old boy, all
from Citrus Heights, and a 17-year-old boy from Turlock.

reported people were loading electronics items into a U-Haul box van
behind Walmart on Lead Hill. The reporting party wasn't sure the

wandering in and out of the store. Officers responded, stopped the
U-Haul box van on Douglas Boulevard, and contacted the two female
occupants. Both were on probation. Officers searched the women and
the van, and found numerous gift cards loaded with information from
stolen credit cards, and thousands of dollars of merchandise that had

and Suisun, were arrested for burglary (entering the store with
