Beat 3 (central Roseville south of the rail yard)
Folsom Road, vehicle theft: Overnight May 14/15, a “Honda Hunter Special,” a dark green 1996 Honda Civic with Nevada plates was stolen from the 1000 block of Lead Hill Blvd. A “Honda Hunter Special” is an older sedan, like 1990s or early 2000s Hondas, preferred by car thieves because they’re easy to steal. If you depend on one of these good old workhorse cars for your transportation, we recommend parking it in the garage if possible, and when that’s not possible, protect it with a Club (steering wheel lock) or other highly visible auto theft deterrence device.

Kaseberg/Kingswood, prowling: At 11:11 p.m. May 15, a good neighbor called in suspicious activity—a man checking car doors in the 1400 block of Dorchester Drive.
