Roseville California Crime Brief (8.10.14)
The following crime brief was recently issued by the Roseville Police Department.
East Roseville Parkway, commercial burglary: Between 1 and 3:30 a.m. August 7, someone broke into a movie theater box office in the 500 block of North Sunrise Avenue, rummaged around and pried some coin machines. Fortunately no money had been left in the business overnight.
Johnson Ranch, commercial burglaries: Between 3 p.m. August 3 and the morning of August 4, someone broke the window of a chiropractic office in the 1800 block of East Roseville Parkway and took items.
Around 2:30 a.m. August 6, someone broke the glass doors of two businesses, a restaurant and a beauty salon, in the 9200 block of Sierra College Boulevard, taking the cash drawer from the restaurant. Nothing was taken from the salon.
Maidu, stolen bikes recovered: Around 8:40 a.m. August 5, we got calls from two different residents of the Maidu area, both reporting suspicious activity--a man walking down the street and another man in an SUV who appeared to be waiting for him. The callers were concerned that the two men were casing the area looking for stuff to steal. Officers contacted both men, and saw that they had three bicycles in the back of their SUV. Two of the bicycles had been stolen from a car-mounted bike rack in Rocklin earlier in the morning. The victim responded and retrieved his stolen property. The two suspects, a 28-year-old man from Sacramento and a 29-year-old man from Elk Grove, were arrested. Officers suspected the third bike was also stolen and took it for safekeeping, pending a victim calling in. Kudos to the two Maidu residents who recognized suspicious activity and called it in!
Sierra Gardens, commercial burglaries: Overnight August 4/5, someone smashed the glass front door of a restaurant in the 1800 block of Douglas Boulevard, taking cash from the register and several bottles of alcohol beverages. At 5:20 a.m. August 7, officers responded to an alarm at a small business in the 1800 block of Douglas Boulevard, and found the back door had been pried. It's unknown at this time what was taken.
Lead Hill, robbery: At 6 p.m. August 2, a man went into a clothing store in the 1700 block of Santa Clara Drive and robbed the owner. He told her he had a gun, although no gun was seen. He took cash from the cash register, the owner's purse, and other items of value. The robber was described as an Asian male in his 40s, 5'8" tall and heavyset, wearing a blue t-shirt and blue jeans. He spoke with what the victim described as a Middle-Eastern accent. The victim wasn't injured.

Cirbyside, shoplifting: At 10:46 a.m. August 5, officers responded to a report of two shoplifters fleeing from a drug store in the 900 block of Sunrise Avenue. An employee had observed them stealing and tried to stop them, but the suspects got into an SUV and drove away.
Officers stopped the suspect vehicle nearby and while they were talking to the two women inside, a citizen bystander approached the officers and told them he'd seen a third woman get out of the suspect's vehicle and run away. Officers searched the area, assisted by several other citizen witnesses who pointed them in the direction the woman had fled, and found her hiding under a pickup in a nearby parking lot. Officers found a large quantity of suspected stolen merchandise inside the suspects' SUV. Two 34-year-old Sacramento women were arrested on suspicion of burglary and conspiracy (entering the store with the intention of stealing) and other related charges. The other passenger in the vehicle was interviewed and released. The officers appreciate the citizen witnesses who helped them in this incident.
Hillcrest, burglary: Between 3 p.m. August 5 and 9 a.m. the next day, someone broke into a chiropractic office in the 100 block of South Harding Boulevard and rummaged through the office area. Nothing was taken.
