Cresthaven, commercial burglaries: At 2:41 a.m. May 28, officers responded to an alarm at a convenience store in the 100 block of Cirby Way, and found that someone had thrown a rock through a window and gone in, stealing lottery tickets, cash and merchandise. A sandwich shop in the same complex was also burglarized.
Cherry Glen, real estate rental scam: On May 20, a resident responded to a Craigslist ad for a house rental in the Cherry Glen neighborhood. After filling out a rental application, paying an application fee and being asked for a deposit, the prospective renter became suspicious and decided to visit the house she planned to rent. She spoke with the resident homeowner, and learned that the house was being offered for sale, but not for rent. The homeowner didn't know the person who had advertised the home on Craigslist, and hadn't authorized her or anyone else to list the home as a rental. An officer investigated and found a second victim, another local woman who had filled out a rental application for the same house and paid an application fee. The officer arrested a 23-year-old Roseville woman on suspicion of fraud and other related charges.
Folsom Road, commercial burglary: Between 3 p.m. May 26 and 6 a.m. May 27, someone forced entry to a restaurant in the 200 block of Harding Blvd. Nothing was taken from the inside, but a green women's bicycle was stolen from outside at the rear of the business.
Central Roseville, north of the tracks
Foothills/Junction, commercial burglaries: Overnight May 22/23, someone burglarized a sandwich shop in the 5100 block of Foothills Boulevard and stole cash. Between the evening of May 23 and the morning of May 25, someone burglarized a postal store in the 4000 block of Foothills and stole cash from the cash drawer. In both burglaries, entry was made by smashing glass in the front of the stores.
North Central Roseville
Woodcreek, burglary: Overnight May 24/25, someone went into a home on Fremantle Court while the residents were sleeping, and stole jewelry from an office room. Entry may have been made through an unlocked sliding glass door.
Highland Reserve, burglary: Between May 9 and May 11, someone burglarized a house in the 600 block of Crestfield Circle while the residents were out of town, stealing jewelry, cash and electronic items. Entry was made by throwing a rock through a backyard-facing window.
Highland Reserve, theft: At about 10:10 a.m. May 22, a landscaper parked his truck and trailer in front of a home on Kingsbury Court, and left it unattended for about five minutes. When he returned, someone had stolen lawn maintenance tools from the trailer. A neighbor saw a full size white truck drive quickly in and out of the cul de sac around the time of the theft.
Highland Reserve, thefts committed during teenage parties: On a recent weekend night, officers responded to complaints about a loud teenage party at a home in the Highland Reserve neighborhood. Officers helped shut down the party and notified parents. Later the residents discovered jewelry missing from a bedroom. The next night, another teenager threw a party at another home in the Highland Reserve neighborhood while his parent was out of town. The next morning, the teenage host discovered that a TV and computer had been taken. An uninvited guest was suspected.
West Park, suspicious activity: At about 8:30 p.m. May 24, officers responded to West Park, to calls about suspicious activity--a pickup being driven around the neighborhood, making frequent stops. One caller was concerned because she was aware of recent construction site theft activity, and knew there were homes under construction in the area where the pickup was cruising. Officers found the pickup parked in front of a home under construction in the 3300 block of Welton Circle, and contacted the two occupants. They found pieces of lumber and other construction materials in the pickup, that were identified as coming from the construction area. A 46-year-old man from Sacramento and a 45-year-old woman from Elk Grove were arrested on suspicion of misapproprating found property. This was a great example of a resident making a timely call to police about suspicious activity.
