At 1:30 a.m., a Roseville police officer stopped a car for a traffic violation on Industrial Avenue near Galilee Road. The officer soon established that driver had a felony Placer County warrant related to stolen property, and one of the passengers was on Post Release Community Supervision, an alternative prison sentence that allows convicts to be in the public under California’s criminal realignment law. According to Roseville police, a search of the vehicle produced a number of stolen items from a residential burglary in Wheatland, as well as gas-siphoning tools and burglar’s tools. The officers also allegedly found methamphetamine in the car. Shannon McCartney, 34, Lincoln, was arrested on charges of possession of methamphetamine, stolen property, burglar’s tools and giving a false name to police. Timothy Godwin, 30, of Auburn, was arrested on charges of possessing stolen property and possessing burglar’s tools.

Just after 3 a.m., Roseville police officers stopped a vehicle on Pleasant Grove Boulevard at Gold Coast Drive. As the traffic stop got underway, an officer allegedly noticed one of the passengers trying to hide a syringe. That observation led to a search of the vehicle. According to Roseville police, the officer found a large quantity of “hashish.” The driver, 31-year-old Scott Reiswig, of Anderson, was arrested on suspicion of DUI and other drug-related charges. The three passengers, 29-year old Gwen Greiner, 51-year-old Kimberle Wilson and 56-year-old Kelly Kuehne — all from Redding — were arrested on suspicion of drug possession and other related charges.

Just after 8:30 a.m., a Roseville police officer stopped at the Miner's Ravine trailhead parking lot off of Sierra College Boulevard. Knowing that a high number of vehicle burglaries had been reported in the spot, the officer conducted an area check. According to Roseville Police Spokeswoman Dee Dee Gunther, the officer noticed a man sitting in a car that that had been positioned very close to another unoccupied vehicle. The officer contacted the driver, 29-year-old Jeffrey Everett Watters, of Carmichael, and determined he was on Post Release Community Supervision. A search of Watters car allegedly yielded stolen property, including a spool of copper wire. Gunther said further investigation linked Watters to two separate Roseville vehicle burglaries on Orvietto Drive, another popular trail entrance in the city. Watter was arrested on charges of burglary and possessing stolen property.  Roseville police detectives are continuing to investigate Watters’ activities in the city in relationship to other open property crimes near the trails.
