Quail Glen, trucks stolen: Around 3:30 a.m. Monday, June 16, someone stole two construction company trucks, a white Ford F250 flatbed with a lumber rack and a white Toyota Tacoma pickup, from a secured lot in the 9000 block of Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard. The Tacoma pickup was found, undamaged and unoccupied, by CHP. The flatbed truck is still missing.
Blue Oaks and Industrial West neighborhoods, score one for alert neighbors: Just after midnight June 15, a resident called 911 about a suspicious man checking vehicles on Indian Runner Court in the Industrial West neighborhood. Officers responded but were unable to locate the man. A little later, another resident called 911 about a suspicious man getting into a neighbor's car in the 1500 block of Woodhaven Circle in the Blue Oaks neighborhood. An officer was already in the area because of the first call, and got to Woodhaven Circle in time to catch a man snooping through a resident's vehicle. A search of the suspect's vehicle (stolen from Sacramento a couple days prior) turned up additional stolen property. The suspect, a 36-year-old Elk Grove man, was arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft, possessing stolen property and other related charges.
It appears the suspect was going through neighborhoods trying car doors, and then rummaging through unlocked cars for anything worth taking. This is why it's important to park your cars inside your locked garage whenever possible, and to remove all your valuables and lock up vehicles that are parked outside. Kudos to the alert residents who immediately called police to report suspicious activity!
West Park, fuel theft: At 3:40 a.m. Monday June 16, an officer checked on an occupied pickup on Fiddyment Road and Pleasant Grove Blvd. The truck was out of gas, and officers found a gas can and siphon nearby. It appeared the occupants had been canvassing the nearby neighborhood looking for vehicles with gas to siphon. A 30-year-old man from Antelope and a 38-year-old man from North Highlands were arrested on suspicion of petty theft and other related charges.
