Roseville Crime Report Digest (3-14-14)
The Roseville Police Department's weekly crime report digest for March 14, 2014.
Olympus Pointe, vandalism: Between 10:35 and 10:45 a.m. March 10, someone broke the passenger window of a car on Rochelle Court. No one was seen and nothing was taken.
Galleria-Harding area, car burglaries: Overnight March 7/8, someone pried the doors of three cars in the 700 and 800 block of Gibson Drive, taking a diaper bag, cash, paperwork and other small items.
East Roseville Parkway, juvenile issue: A resident who lives near David Uribe Park on Empingham Drive reported that his house and a neighbor's house have been TPd repeatedly over the past few months, and that there are issues with older teens hanging around the park late at night on weekends. This is a good reminder to parents that Roseville, like most communities, has a juvenile curfew--minors under the age of 18 are not supposed to be out and about in public between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., unless they're attending or returning from a movie, student activity, restaurant or similar place with their parents' permission. Also, with the exception of certain permitted events, city parks close at sunset.
East Roseville Parkway, vehicle burglary: Between 2 and 6 a.m. March 4, someone broke into a car in the 1500 block of Secret Ravine Parkway and stole a set of golf clubs, wallet and credit cards.
Johnson Ranch, theft: Between 4:40 and 4:45 p.m. March 8, someone stole a gray Trek 10-speed bike from outside a grocery store at Douglas Boulevard and Sierra College Boulevard.
Johnson Ranch, robbery: At 7:50 p.m. March 11, a male went into a restaurant in the Safeway shopping center in the 8600 block of Sierra College Boulevard, and handed an employee a note demanding cash. He had a visible small handgun tucked into his waistband. The employee gave him cash from the register, and the robber fled on foot toward the apartment complex next door. He was described as a white male in his mid-20s, 5'11" tall, with an athletic build, a pockmarked face and a bald or shaved head. He also had some type of black mark--ink or paint--on his forehead. He was wearing a black hoodie and gray shorts. No vehicle associated with him was seen, and we don't have any video surveillance of him at this time. If this person sounds familiar, give us a call.
Maidu, attempted burglary: At 8:10 p.m. March 7, a resident was watching TV in her mostly darkened house when she heard a loud crash, and found that someone had kicked her front door open. No one came into the house, and no suspect was seen. It's possible that a would-be burglar thought no one was home, and fled when he realized the house was occupied. Officers found a footprint on the door.
Lead Hill, vehicle burglary: Between 5:20 and 5:45 a.m. March 12, someone broke the window of a car parked at a fitness center in the 300 block of North Sunrise Avenue, reached in and took a purse from the floor board.

Cresthaven/Livoti, search and arrest: At 11:19 p.m. March 9, an officer tried to stop a car with expired tags on Whyte Avenue. After initially failing to yield, the driver pulled over, got out of the car and ran. Officers surrounded the area and conducted a search with the help of a Sacramento County Sheriff's helicopter, but weren't able to find the driver. At 3:20 a.m., officers spotted the suspect on Marioposa Way, and he ran again. The officer chased him down and took him into custody. The 43-year-old Citrus Heights resident was arrested on suspicion of DUI, driving on a suspended license, and other related charges.
Downtown, burglary: At about 12:10 a.m. March 14, a man pried the door to a business in the 100 block of Judah Street, stole checks from a desk and fled in a dark colored 1990s model extended-cab pickup, possibly a Chevy or GMC. The suspect was described as a white male in his late 20s or 30s, wearing a beanie cap, plaid shirt and blue jeans.
Folsom Road, weapons and drugs seized: At 12:20 a.m. March 9, an officer checked on a car in a hotel parking lot in the 1000 block of Lead Hill, and a group of males associated with the car. Officers found them armed with loaded handguns, and also found evidence of marijuana sales in their vehicle. Four males between the ages of 24 and 29 from Sacramento and North Highlands were arrested for weapons violations, possessing marijuana for sale, and other related charges.
Central Roseville, north of the tracks
Vineyard, theft: Between 3 and 4:30 p.m. March 7, someone stole an unsecured white Marin Venecia 10-speed bike from outside a fast food restaurant in the 3900 block of Foothills Boulevard.
Vineyard, vehicle vs. house, DUI suspected: At 2:45 a.m. March 14, officers and firefighters responded to a vehicle that had just struck a house in the 1100 block of Elm Street. RFD checked the house and reported no significant structural damage. The 20-year-old driver, who lives in Roseville but not at the collision site, was checked out at the hospital and then taken to jail on suspicion of DUI. No one in the house reported being injured.
North Central Roseville
Diamond Oaks, thefts: Between 10 p.m. March 9 and 3 a.m. March 10, someone went through three cars in the 2100 block of Belvedere Circle, taking a wallet, backpack and other items.

Woodcreek, theft: Between March 7 and March 11, someone went into a backyard in the 1100 block of Caragh Street and stole the pool sweep from the swimming pool.
Blue Oaks, theft: Overnight March 5/6, someone stole cash from a vehicle in the 3200 block of Green Springs Way. The owner may have accidentally left it unlocked. The same night, someone took cash from a vehicle in the 3100 block of Hopscotch Way. There was no sign of forced entry, and the vehicle may have been unlocked.
Fiddyment Farms, rock-throwing: At about 8:38 p.m. March 7, someone threw a rock at a moving vehicle on Hayden Parkway near Summerland Drive, breaking the car's windshield. The rock came from the area of an apartment complex. The officer learned that this is the second such incident in this area.
