Roseville Burglars Evade Police
Roseville, CA - Police officers searched the Crescendo Drive area extensively today after a resident reported an attempted burglary. The officers were unable to locate the suspects at this time.
A resident of the 1200 block of Crescendo Drive reported that shortly before 11 a.m., two men came to the door and rang the doorbell several times. The resident did not talk to them or answer the door, and a few minutes later saw the same two men in the backyard, trying to get in through a sliding glass door. When the men realized the resident was home, they fled on foot, last seen running south on Crescendo Drive toward West Whyte Avenue.
The suspects were described as a short, chubby black male, wearing a plain black shirt, and a taller, thinner Hispanic or black male, last seen wearing a red and blue beanie cap. No weapons or vehicle were seen.
Officers are also investigating whether a residential burglary nearby in the 400 block of Dawnridge Avenue, reported during the same time period, is connected to the same suspects. The unseen burglar(s) on Dawnridge likely got into the house through an unlocked sliding door or an unlocked rear bedroom window, took property from the house and exited through the front door.
If anyone in the area saw the suspects or noticed any suspicious activity this morning, please call Roseville Police at (916)774-5000.
