Folsom Road, vehicle theft: Overnight April 7/8, someone stole a blue 1994 Honda Accord from the 100 block of Sutter Avenue. This was a “Honda Hunter Special”—an older sedan preferred by car thieves because they’re easy to steal. If you depend on one of these older sedans, we recommend you park it in the garage if possible, and protect it with a highly visible steering wheel lock, like a Club. They can be purchased for around $25 and are a great investment to protect your car. (2017-22318)
Folsom Road, traffic-related assault, arrest made: At about 8:40 p.m. April 10, officers responded to a traffic incident on Sutter Avenue and Folsom Road, where one driver allegedly rammed his car into another car, then drove away.

Folsom Road, prowling: At 9:40 p.m. April 10, officers responded to a report of a man rummaging in a trash can outside a home on Estates Court.

Officers cited the 50-year-old Sacramento man on suspicion of prowling on private property and possessing a concealed dagger (fixed-blade knife). (2017-22488)
Folsom Road, burglary, arrests made: At about 11:15 a.m. April 12, officers responded to a hotel in the 200 block of Harding Blvd. to investigate the theft of hotel property from one of the rooms. Their investigation led them to search another room in the hotel and a car in the parking lot. They found the stolen property and returned it to the hotel. They also found drugs, drug paraphernalia and other unsafe items within reach of young children in the room. Two men, ages 26 and 33, from Sacramento and North Highlands, and a 30-year-old woman from North Highlands were arrested on various charges including burglary, possession of methamphetamine for sale and child endangerment. The children were released to the care of children’s protective authorities. (2017-22861)

Vineyard, vehicle theft: Overnight April 11/12, someone stole a white 1998 Honda Civic from the 1300 block of Zinfandel Drive. This was a “Honda Hunter Special”—an older sedan preferred by car thieves because they’re easy to steal. If you depend on one of these older sedans, we recommend you park it in the garage if possible, and protect it with a highly visible steering wheel lock, like a Club. They can be purchased for around $25 and are a great investment to protect your car. (2017-22789)
Beat 5 (north central Roseville)
Foothills-Junction, vehicle theft: Between 2 and 6 p.m. April 7, someone stole a green 1992 Saturn SL sedan from a lot in the 4000 block of Foothill’s Boulevard. Although it’s a Saturn, it also qualifies as a “Honda Hunter Special”—an older sedan preferred by car thieves because they’re easy to steal. If you depend on one of these older sedans, we recommend you park it in the garage whenever possible, and protect it with a highly visible steering wheel lock, like a Club. They can be purchased for around $25 and are a great investment to protect your car. (2017-21822)
Pleasant Grove, burglary of an occupied home: At about 3 a.m. April 8, a resident of Ainsdale Drive saw a stranger in his hallway. He grabbed the intruder, pushed him out the door into the garage and locked the door behind him, then called police. Officers were able to identify a suspect, stopped his car and arrested him soon afterwards in northwest Roseville. The 18-year-old Roseville resident was arrested on suspicion of burglary and taken to the Placer County Jail. Detectives are investigating a connection between him and other reports of prowling in west Roseville over the past few months, where someone was reported checking the door handles of homes in the middle of the night. If you’ve had any such suspicious activity and haven’t yet reported it to police, or noted any suspicious activity involving an older white Infiniti sedan, email Detective Coghlan at firstname.lastname@example.org . A booking photo of the suspect is posted on our Facebook page. (2017-21889)

Stanford, shoplifting made worse: At 6:30 p.m. April 11, teenagers left a grocery store in the 700 block of Pleasant Grove Boulevard carrying bottles of liquor. When an employee tried to stop them, they knocked the employee down (thereby increasing their crime from shoplifting to robbery), got in a car and drove away. A couple minutes later dispatch got calls about juveniles in a car creating a disturbance nearby on Camellia Point Way. Officers responded and detained suspects. Ultimately three juveniles from Sacramento County were arrested and taken to juvenile hall on suspicion of robbery and related charges. (2017-22725)
