Rocklin Police Arrest Man on Burglary and Drug Charges
This morning, October 17, at approximately 02:33 AM, Rocklin Police officers observed a suspicious vehicle driving in an alley behind a business in the 4000 block of Granite Drive. The business was closed and when officers approached the suspect and attempted to contact him, he fled from officers on foot. Additional officers responded and a perimeter was established. The suspect was eventually apprehended in a nearby business complex. The suspect was identified as, Donald McGuckin, a 46 year old from Sacramento.
Officers searched the area where they first tried to contact McGuckin and discovered that a front window to a business had been broken.
