Information gathered from local police reports. All accused are presumed innocent unless found guilty in a court of law.
Adjacent businesses at the corner of Rocky Ridge Drive and Cirby Way, a pizza restaurant and a pet food store, were burglarized at about 10:30 p.m. An alert neighbor called police to report suspicious activity and gave a description of the suspect vehicle, an older, dark-colored, possibly brown American-made sedan with a partial vinyl top, similar in appearance to a Cadillac El Dorado. Two males were seen loading property into the vehicles.
At 9:20 p.m., officers responded to a burglary alarm at an automotive business on Plumber Way. They found that someone had broken a window and possibly entered the business, but nothing appeared to be missing.
At about 4 p.m., Roseville firefighters investigated a smell of smoke near the creek off the 1800 block of Blue Jay Drive, and found a couple of burned-out spots (one possibly made at an earlier date) in the vegetation. A juvenile wearing a black T-shirt, blue jeans and a backpack was seen leaving the area.
Between 10 a.m. on Feb. 16 and 7:30 a.m. on Feb. 17, someone stole a red Nissan Pathfinder pickup from Halley Glen Drive. The Sacramento Police Department found it the next day, in their jurisdiction.
There were three vehicle burglaries or attempted vehicle burglaries in the Johnson Ranch neighborhood in the early morning hours. Between 2:30 and 6:30 a.m., someone went into a car parked in a driveway on Woburn Court and took a laptop computer and phone chargers. There was no sign of forced entry into the vehicle. During the same time frame, someone smashed the windows of a car parked in the driveway of a home in the 5900 block of Silkwood Way and took a laptop computer, iPod and iPad, and broke the windows of a vehicle parked in the driveway of a home in the 4700 block of Allegretto Way. Nothing was taken from that vehicle.
Between Feb. 12 and 18, two vehicles, a 1996 Honda Accord four-door sedan and a red 1991 Acura Integra two-door, were stolen at separate times from the parking lot of an apartment complex at 1751 East Roseville Parkway.
At about 8 a.m., a red 1998 Dodge Neon was taken from a driveway in the 1800 block of Iceberg Lane. The owner had left it momentarily while it was running, with the keys in the ignition, and it was stolen. No suspect was seen.
Sometime overnight, someone stole a red 1996 Chevy 4-door sedan from an apartment complex parking lot at 1451 Kingswood Drive.
