Thefts targeting cars in commercial parking lots: Between approximately 9 and 10 p.m. Saturday, July 12, thieves broke into four cars, stealing valuables from inside, and stole catalytic converters from four others in commercial parking lots:
Vehicle burglaries: Thieves smashed the windows of four cars in a parking lot in the 1800 block of Taylor Road, taking purses and cell phones.
Catalytic converter thefts: During roughly the same time frame as the vehicle burglaries, thieves stole catalytic converters from four Toyota SUVs--three Sequoias and a 4Runner--parked at a movie theater lot in the 500 block of North Sunrise Avenue, at a hotel in the 1900 block of Taylor Road, at The Fountains and in one of the parking structures at the mall.
Maidu, garage burglary: At about 11:40 p.m. July 12, a resident of the 1200 block of Ridgecrest Way saw the light from a moving flashlight inside her garage, and called police. She then heard her main garage door go up. The unknown burglar had gone into the garage, probably through an unlocked side door, and stole a black Cannondale mountain bike, then opened the main garage door and left. Numerous officers responded and searched the area with the help of a CHP air unit, but were unable to locate a suspect.
Lead Hill, robbery: At about 3 p.m. July 12, a woman was shopping at a store in the 1800 block of Douglas Boulevard, with her purse in the upper basket of her shopping cart. She had her back to the cart, looking at merchandise, when her companion saw a man take her cell phone out of her purse and walk quickly away. The victim followed the suspect and tried to get her property back, but the suspect acted aggressively toward the woman, frightening her, then ran away with her phone. Officers investigated, and about an hour later stopped two men coming out of another store in the same complex. They had two phones they had just purchased from another man. One of the phones was our victim's, and the men were in the process of deleting her contacts and other history from the phone. Officers arrested the two brothers (ages 20 and 22, from Fair Oaks) on suspicion of conspiracy and possessing stolen property, and returned the stolen cell phone to the victim. Continuing to investigate, the officers went to a hotel on Harding Boulevard, where they located the man suspected of stealing the cell phone from the woman's purse. Officers arrested the 46-year-old transient male on suspicion of robbery.

A resident heard a noise in his backyard, looked out and saw a man trying to remove a window screen. The resident confronted the intruder and called police, and the intruder took off running, climbing over fences into other backyards. Responding officers stopped an associated car on Blanchard Drive near Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard, occupied by two males, and about 45 minutes later stopped a third suspect on foot on Bottlebrush Circle. Officers arrested the three males, a 21-year-old with no permanent address, and two Roseville residents, a 20-year-old and 21-year-old, on suspicion of attempted burglary and other related charges.
Junction West, theft, two arrested: On the morning of July 11, officers conducted a special operation to address a recent increase in thefts of tools from landscape maintenance tools, working with the department's crime analyst to identify areas where more thefts were likely to occur. Just before 11 a.m. Friday, July 11, officers on a stakeout saw a car cruising slowly through the neighborhood, and then get out and take tools from a landscaper's trailer on Park Regency Drive. Officers stopped the car on Junction and detained the driver, but the passenger got out and ran, jumping over the retaining wall and through the adjacent neighborhood. After a search, officers found the suspect in a yard in the 1800 block of Grouse Run Circle, and took him into custody. The two Sacramento residents were arrested on suspicion of grand theft and other related charges. Officers recovered stolen tools and returned them to the landscaping crew.
Blue Oaks, intruder: At 4:25 a.m. July 13, officers responded to a home in the 1800 block of Pico Rivera Drive regarding an unidentified older man who had wandered into the house through an open garage. The intruder, a man in his 70s, seemed confused and didn't intend any harm to the residents. Officers took him to the hospital to be evaluated.
