Roseville was hit with a rash of random fires last week burning the Royer Park/Saugstad trails system and a house garage on B street all within walking distance to each other.

An unknown suspect is still at large, according to Roseville Police Department public information officer Rob Baquera.

“In relation to the suspicious fires, our detectives are following up on multiple leads,” Baquera said, “as well as processing evidence collected by crime scene investigators.”

Baquera also addressed the massive car burglary that left more than three dozen vehicles damaged and broken into July 18.

“In all of these cases, it was a crime of opportunity,” Baquera said. “We’re still looking for the public’s help to provide any leads.”

“If you saw anything suspicious, please call in to the police department with information,” Baquera said. “Crime tips that lead to an arrest could get some cash in your pocket from Roseville Crime Stoppers.”

That number to call is 916-783-7867.
