Roseville, CA - The Roseville Police Department weekly crime report digest update for July 29, 2014.
Olympus Pointe, theft: Between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. July 25, someone sawed the catalytic converter off the undercarriage of a Toyota Sequoia SUV in the 1600 block of East Roseville Parkway.
Galleria/Harding, carjacking, arrest made: At about 3:30 a.m. July 27, officers responded to a carjacking that had just occurred in the overflow parking lot for The Fountains at the corner of Roseville Parkway and Reserve Drive. The victim was getting into his car when a stranger approached him, pointed a handgun and ordered him to get down on the ground. The stranger then drove away in the victim's Audi sedan. Roseville's dispatchers broadcast a description of the stolen car to surrounding law enforcement agencies, and a few minutes later the Lincoln Police Department spotted it being driven near Joiner Park in their city. The suspect driver fled from the Lincoln officers, crashed the stolen car, and then fled on foot. Roseville and Rocklin police officers and Placer County Sheriff's deputies went to Lincoln to help search for the suspect. A few hours later, a Lincoln Police officer located the suspect hiding in the creek area, and took him into custody. The suspect, a 34-year-old man from Lincoln, was arrested on suspicion of carjacking, evading officers, and other associated charges. This incident was a great example of the teamwork we rely upon with our neighboring law enforcement agencies.

The suspects had two other catalytic converters from a yet-unidentified Toyota Sequoia in their possession.

East Roseville Parkway, garage burglary: Overnight July 25/26, someone stole a Green Cannondale mountain bike from a garage in the 2700 block of Carradale Drive.
