This is a digest of selected crime reports and police activity, not a complete list. Some incidents might not be listed, to protect the privacy of confidential victims, or to avoid endangering an ongoing investigation.

Beat 1 (northeast Roseville)
Olympus Pointe, burglary:  Between 8 a.m. and 6:45 p.m. July 17, someone smashed the front window of a home in the 2600 block of La Croix Drive and entered the home, taking guitars and other items of value.  (2017-46004)

East Roseville Parkway, assault:  At about 5 p.m. July 20, officers responded to drivers involved in a road-rage incident in the 2000 block of Taylor Road. The drivers got irritated at each other on Pacific Street in Rocklin—one reportedly cut the other one off and blew a stop sign, horns were blown and one driver “brake-checked” the other. They got out of their vehicles in the 2000 block of Taylor Road, argued, and one driver punched the other one. Officers talked to both drivers. Neither wanted to press charges, and the incident was documented in a report. We're glad that no one was injured in this incident, but please remember when you're tempted to honk at, make rude gestures or otherwise take on another driver, that you don't know the other driver's history or whether they might be armed.  It's best to be patient  and "let it go."  If they're driving recklessly or you think they might be drunk, call 911 to report them.   (2017-46538)

Beat 2 (east Roseville)
Meadow Oaks, probation search:  At about 9 a.m. July 19, officers went to a home in the 1100 block of Cottonwood Drive for a routine probation search.  They found some suspicious items in the house, and called for the Roseville-Rocklin bomb squad and other outside agencies to investigate. The officers examined the items and didn’t find anything hazardous.  No arrests were made.  (2017-46110)

Beat 3 (central Roseville south of the rail yard):
Cirbyside, drug arrests:  At about 3:50 p.m. July 18, officers stopped a speeding car on Coloma Way near Sunrise Avenue, and found drugs, paraphernalia and evidence of heroin sales inside the car.  The investigation led them to search a home nearby in the 800 block of Elisa Way, where they found evidence that people were congregating there to buy, sell and use drugs like methamphetamine and heroin.  A 25-year-old Fair Oaks man was arrested on suspicion of possessing heroin for sale and drug paraphernalia, and a 26-year-old Roseville woman was arrested on suspicion of keeping a place to sell drugs, possessing drug paraphernalia, taking controlled substances into jail, and outstanding warrants. Two other people, a 22-year-old from Orangevale and a 24-year-old from Citrus Heights, were arrested on suspicion of possessing drugs.  (2017-46238)
Note about neighborhood issues:  Sometimes residents may notice a home or area of their neighborhood where they suspect drug-dealing or other illegal activity is going on. Signs of a drug house include a lot of foot traffic and short-term visitors at all hours of the day and night, obvious hand-to-hand drug deals and drug use, and suspicious people hanging around.  You might also notice an increase in thefts in the area.  Please call us to report such suspicious activity, and please keep calling—don’t give up if you don’t see an officer respond in time for each call. You might not see an immediate improvement, but please know that your calls are being documented, and that your neighborhood officers and special units like the Crime Suppression Unit will investigate so-called hot spots. We need your persistent partnership to keep our neighborhoods safe and protect Roseville’s quality of life.

Beat 5 (north central Roseville)
Foothills-Junction, grand thefts: Overnight July 16/17, someone stole all the tires and wheels from two different 2017 Honda Accords on Marcia Way.  Crime scene technicians responded to examine the area and collect evidence.  (2017-45825, 45869)

Industrial, assault:  At 9:45 p.m. July 17, officers responded to an assault at a gas station in the 8000 block of Washington Blvd. Two drivers were pumping gas, and one of the drivers made a comment about the loud music coming from the other driver’s car. Approximately four males from the car that was broadcasting the loud music attacked the first driver, throwing objects at him and then hitting and kicking him until bystanders intervened and stopped the assault, and the suspects left. The victim, a man in his 50s, was treated at the scene by paramedics. He declined to go to the hospital by ambulance, but was taken later by family. The suspects left in a light colored SUV, similar to a Ford Escape or Explorer. Detectives are investigating the assault.  (2017-46017)
