Sunday, May 6 

Between 9 p.m. May 6 and 4 a.m. May 7, someone got into a locked vehicle in the 1500 block of East Colonial Parkway by unknown means and took a wallet from the center console.  The victim's debit card was soon used to make purchases at several stores in the local area.

At about 3 p.m. May 7, a woman parked her car at Sculpture Park, placed her purse in the trunk of the car, locked the car and went for a run. When she returned, someone had smashed her car window, popped the trunk open and stolen her purse. Her bank cards had already been used to make fraudulent purchases.

Thursday, May 10

Between 10 p.m. May 10 and 1 p.m. May 11, someone pried the door of a car parked in an apartment complex lot at 8800 Sierra College Blvd. and took a breadmaker, several electronic items (computer printer, iPod, chargers) and jewelry.

Overnight on May 10/11, someone went into a possibly unlocked car in an apartment complex parking lot at 1299 Antelope Creek Dr. and took a laptop computer, video game equipment, a checkbook and other items of value.

Friday, May 11

At about 2 a.m. May 11, an employee of a restaurant in the 1100 block of Orlando saw two people rummaging through his unlocked vehicle, taking a tent and flashlight from the trunk.  Employees detained one of the suspects until officers arrived, and an officer stopped a related vehicle with the second suspect nearby.  Two men from Citrus Heights, ages 20 and 21, were issued citations for petty theft, and their driver was arrested on suspicion of DUI.

Saturday, May 12

Gas siphoned — Between 6 p.m. May 12 and 8 a.m. May 13, someone siphoned gas from a pickup parked in the 600 block of Loretto Drive.

Attempted theft — At about 12:40 p.m. May 12, a male was seen tampering with the rear license plate of a vehicle parked at Buljan Park. The car owner confronted the unknown suspect, who drove away in a teal or silver Dodge Caravan with no rear plate.

Between 9:30 p.m. May 12 and midnight, someone pried the door of a vehicle parked in a movie theater parking lot on North Sunrise Avenue.  The thief rummaged through the vehicle, but fortunately the car owner hadn't left anything of value in the car, and nothing was taken.

Tip from Roseville Police:  Movie theater lots, like fitness center lots, can be easy pickings for thieves-the thieves know you won't be back for a couple of hours.  Never leave valuable items in your car.

They kept an eye on the suspect and called police.  Officers tried to contact the suspect, and he ran away, jumping fences into backyards.  They found him in the 1000 block of McRae Way, and took him into custody without further incident.  The officers recovered headphones and other small items that had been taken out of the possibly unlocked vehicle on Hovey Way.  A 24-year-old male from Roseville was arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen property, possessing burglar's tools, and resisting or delaying officers.

At 6:15 a.m. on May 14, a resident of an apartment complex in the 1000 block of Madden Lane heard her car alarm, went out and discovered her car window had been smashed and her stereo taken.  No suspects were seen in the area.
