Roseville California Crime Brief (9.4.14)
Roseville, CA -- The Roseville Police crime brief update for September 4, 2014.
East Roseville Parkway, stolen vehicle recovered: At 9:30 a.m. September 3, officers responded to calls from concerned motorists about a woman walking close to traffic on Sierra College Boulevard. Officers contacted the woman in the Miner's Ravine bike trail parking lot, and found that she had driven there in a stolen SUV. The SUV had been parked on a residential street in Citrus Heights, with the keys inside, when it was stolen. Officers let the vehicle owner know where his SUV was, and arrested the suspect, a 51-year-old Citrus Heights woman, on suspicion of vehicle theft. (14-8705)
Meadow Oaks, residential burglary: Between 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. September 2, someone pried a rear sliding door and burglarized a home in the 1100 block of Parkview Drive, taking a laptop computer, video games and equipment. We think this is connected to three other burglaries or burglary attempts the same day in the Cresthaven neighborhood (1200 block of Crescendo and 400 block of Dawnridge) and the Cirbyside neighborhood (1200 block of Reuter Ranch). A witness on Crescendo saw two suspects, a short, chubby black male adult wearing a black shirt, and a taller, thinner Hispanic or black male adult wearing a red and blue beanie cap. They fled on foot, last seen southbound on Crescendo toward Citrus Heights, and officers were unable to locate them despite an extensive search. The burglaries are under investigation.
