Unincorporated Placer County, DUI collision: At 3:30 a.m. December 6, a Roseville officer made a traffic stop that ended on Walerga Road near Doyle Ranch Drive. While she was on the stop, a van (not the original car she had stopped) sideswiped her patrol vehicle, causing minor damage. There were no injuries. CHP responded and arrested the van driver on suspicion of DUI.  (2017-81517)

Beat 1 (northeast Roseville)
Olympus Point, garage burglary: Overnight December 5/6, someone went into an unlocked garage in the 2400 block of Julliard Circle, then went into the house while residents were sleeping. They rummaged through a car parked in the garage and stole computer equipment from the house. Neighbors found some of the victim’s stolen property discarded down the street. (2017-81346)
Note: The garage is the most common entry point for home burglars. Get into the habit of checking all your doors, including garage doors, before you go to bed every night to make sure everything is closed and locked up. Also, never leave a garage remote inside cars that are parked outside—think of them as keys to your house. 

Galleria-Harding, grand theft: Overnight December 3 to December 4, someone stole all four locked tires and rims from a 2017 Honda Accord at 1100 Roseville Parkway, leaving the car resting on concrete blocks. A similar theft happened the same night in Beat 5, Highland Reserve (see below). (2017-80921)

Beat 2 (east Roseville)

South Cirby, DUI collision: At 3:30 p.m. December 3, officers responded to the 1500 block of Crestmont Avenue for a hit-and-run collision. A woman driving a black VW sedan sideswiped two parked cars and continued driving. With the help of witnesses, officers found the suspect car parked nearby and arrested the driver, a 34-year-old Roseville woman, on suspicion of DUI, hit and run and driving on a suspended license. (2017-80779)

Cirby Ranch, weapons violation: At 10:20 p.m. December 4, officers responded to Greenborough Drive at Harvard Court, to a citizen’s call about suspicious activity. Officers contacted two people sitting inside a silver sedan. The driver had a tire iron on his person. Officers arrested the 36-year-old Citrus Heights man on suspicion of possessing an illegal weapon, methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, and his passenger, a 37-year-old Citrus Heights woman, on various drug charges. Good "suspicious vehicle" call by the citizen witness! (2017-81050)

Roseville Heights, disturbance, arrest: At 4:48 a.m. December 2, officers responded to the 1100 block of Circuit Drive for a disturbance involving a firearm. An acquaintance of the resident had gone into the house without permission, then exited the house, armed himself with a handgun, broke windows of the resident’s vehicle, pointed a handgun and made threatening remarks. Officers found the suspect on foot near the house and took him into custody without incident. They arrested the 22-year-old Roseville resident on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, burglary, vandalism and other related charges. (2017-80484)

Beat 6 (west Roseville)
Junction West, stolen property: At 10:05 p.m. November 28, an officer made a traffic stop on Fiddyment Road at Westlake Drive, and contacted two people. He arrested the passenger, a 40-year-old Antelope man, on an outstanding warrant for drug charges. The driver had ID and bank cards that the officer found out had been stolen from someone’s garage in El Dorado Hills. He also had drug paraphernalia. The officer issued the 38-year-old Sacramento man a citation for possession of stolen property and drug paraphernalia. (2018-79702)

Blue Oaks, arrest: At 10:35 a.m. December 4, an officer was making a routine check of Veteran's Memorial Park North when he noticed something unusual for the park--an illegally parked motor home with its side-wings extended and a power cord connected to a City outlet. He contacted two people and found out they had spent the night in the park. He conducted a probation search of the motor home and another vehicle, and he found methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. He also found out that the man was out of compliance with his registration requirements as a sex offender. The officer arrested the 51-year-old Citrus Heights resident on suspicion of violating his sex registration requirements, vehicle tampering (a trailer attached to the motor home had its VIN removed), possession of methamphetamine and other related charges. His companion was cited for drug possession and released. Great spot by a proactive officer who knows his beat well! (2017-80915)
