During the early morning hours of January 4, 2013, the Rocklin Police Department received a report of a residential burglary and vehicle theft that occurred on Coldwater Drive in Rocklin, as well as reports of three other larcenies that occurred in the same area.
At about 9:45 AM, the Placer County Sheriff's Office (PCSO) received a report from the Onstar Corporation (vehicle tracking & communications) that a vehicle earlier reported stolen in the City Of Rocklin was in the area of Colvin Drive and Myrtle Drive, in the Town of Loomis. PCSO Deputies and the Placer Regional Auto Theft Task Force (RATTF) responded to the area to investigate. Upon their arrival the officers observed Brandon Edward Black (age 28) exit a house on Myrtle Drive and get into the stolen vehicle. Black was arrested without incident for vehicle theft.
Rocklin Police Detectives arrived at the scene in Loomis and took custody of Black and recovered the stolen vehicle. During their investigation Rocklin Police obtained a search warrant for the Myrtle Drive house Black had exited from.

During the service of the search warrant, a male and female occupant of the house fled on foot from officers through the backyard. Officers pursued the pair on foot, and with the assistance of the PCSO Helicopter, conducted a yard-to-yard search of the neighborhood. After about 30 minutes, officers located and arrested the pair about one mile from the house.
