Central Roseville, south of the tracks

Cresthaven, burglary: Between 7:15 and 10:30 p.m. May 20, someone went into a home in the 100 block of Valley Oak Drive, possibly through an open garage, and stole jewelry.

Cresthaven, commercial burglaries: At 2:41 a.m. May 28, officers responded to an alarm at a convenience store in the 100 block of Cirby Way, and found that someone had thrown a rock through a window and gone in, stealing lottery tickets, cash and merchandise. A sandwich shop in the same complex was also burglarized.

Cherry Glen, real estate rental scam: On May 20, a resident responded to a Craigslist ad for a house rental in the Cherry Glen neighborhood. After filling out a rental application, paying an application fee and being asked for a deposit, the prospective renter became suspicious and decided to visit the house she planned to rent. She spoke with the resident homeowner, and learned that the house was being offered for sale, but not for rent. The homeowner didn't know the person who had advertised the home on Craigslist, and hadn't authorized her or anyone else to list the home as a rental. An officer investigated and found a second victim, another local woman who had filled out a rental application for the same house and paid an application fee. The officer arrested a 23-year-old Roseville woman on suspicion of fraud and other related charges.

Tip: Real estate websites and online ads are a great resource for prospective buyers and renters--you can find out all kinds of information about properties online, view pictures of the inside and outside, and even take virtual tours of houses. However, these websites also give scammers the ability to create convincing bogus classified ads. If you're shopping for a home online, be cautious and verify all information. If you find a property you're interested in, do a cross-search of other real estate websites to see if the same property is listed with a different agent and pricing information. As our reporting party did, visit the home in person and make sure all the information you've been given is accurate and consistent. Be especially wary of listings that are far below market value for the area, or anyone who asks you to provide personal information and pay fees before seeing the property, or to wire deposit money to a remote location.

Folsom Road, commercial burglary: Between 3 p.m. May 26 and 6 a.m. May 27, someone forced entry to a restaurant in the 200 block of Harding Blvd. Nothing was taken from the inside, but a green women's bicycle was stolen from outside at the rear of the business.

Central Roseville, north of the tracks

Foothills/Junction, commercial burglaries: Overnight May 22/23, someone burglarized a sandwich shop in the 5100 block of Foothills Boulevard and stole cash. Between the evening of May 23 and the morning of May 25, someone burglarized a postal store in the 4000 block of Foothills and stole cash from the cash drawer. In both burglaries, entry was made by smashing glass in the front of the stores.

Police Beat 5
North Central Roseville

Woodcreek, burglary: Overnight May 24/25, someone went into a home on Fremantle Court while the residents were sleeping, and stole jewelry from an office room. Entry may have been made through an unlocked sliding glass door.

Highland Reserve, burglary: Between May 9 and May 11, someone burglarized a house in the 600 block of Crestfield Circle while the residents were out of town, stealing jewelry, cash and electronic items. Entry was made by throwing a rock through a backyard-facing window.

Highland Reserve, theft: At about 10:10 a.m. May 22, a landscaper parked his truck and trailer in front of a home on Kingsbury Court, and left it unattended for about five minutes. When he returned, someone had stolen lawn maintenance tools from the trailer. A neighbor saw a full size white truck drive quickly in and out of the cul de sac around the time of the theft.

Highland Reserve, thefts committed during teenage parties: On a recent weekend night, officers responded to complaints about a loud teenage party at a home in the Highland Reserve neighborhood. Officers helped shut down the party and notified parents. Later the residents discovered jewelry missing from a bedroom. The next night, another teenager threw a party at another home in the Highland Reserve neighborhood while his parent was out of town. The next morning, the teenage host discovered that a TV and computer had been taken. An uninvited guest was suspected.

Parents might want to talk about with their teenagers about these reports. In addition to the obvious problems with unsupervised teenage parties, like underage drinking, it's hard for teenage hosts to control how widely parties get advertised, uninvited "friends of friends" and other party crashers who show up, and unintended consequences like property damage and theft.

Police Beat 6
West Roseville

West Park, suspicious activity: At about 8:30 p.m. May 24, officers responded to West Park, to calls about suspicious activity--a pickup being driven around the neighborhood, making frequent stops. One caller was concerned because she was aware of recent construction site theft activity, and knew there were homes under construction in the area where the pickup was cruising. Officers found the pickup parked in front of a home under construction in the 3300 block of Welton Circle, and contacted the two occupants. They found pieces of lumber and other construction materials in the pickup, that were identified as coming from the construction area. A 46-year-old man from Sacramento and a 45-year-old woman from Elk Grove were arrested on suspicion of misapproprating found property.  This was a great example of a resident making a timely call to police about suspicious activity.

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 requires 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 www.roseville.ca.us/police, and click on "alarm information" on the menu on the left side of the page.
