Investigations update--Commercial burglary ring busted: In mid-January, a Roseville patrol officer stopped a suspicious vehicle in the middle of the night, arrested two people and recovered stolen property. His alert stop and follow-up led to a month-long investigation of a commercial burglary ring operating in Roseville. Over the past two weeks, our detectives served search warrants at two apartments and a storage unit, and recovered stolen property from commercial burglaries in Roseville, stolen ID, and evidence of marijuana sales. Six people were arrested, including James Eisner, 40, and Valiri Ryan, 27, both of Roseville, on suspicion of identity theft, conspiracy, possession of stolen property, possession of methamphetamine and other related charges:  Brook Heston, 42 of Roseville, on suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale, keeping a place to sell drugs, possessing stolen property, and other related charges; Robert Vance, 44 of Citrus Heights, on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs, assaulting a peace officer and other related charges; and two other people on suspicion of soliciting Heston to buy drugs.

Alarm Permit Renewals

Have you received a notice from the Roseville False Alarm Reduction Program to renew your burglar alarm or pay an excessive false alarm fee, asking you to send payments to P.O. Box 749879 in Los Angeles? This is a valid, legitimate message on behalf of the City of Roseville and the RPD.

The City of Roseville updated its alarm ordinance last year, requiring annual updates of alarm permits for a $5 fee. These updates help us ensure we have current emergency contact information in case there’s an alarm at your house or place of business. We've contracted with an outside company, Crywolf, to handle our alarm permits and false alarm billing.

For more information on our false alarm reduction program, visit our website at, and click on "alarm information" on the menu on the left side of the page.
