Here's a look at the vehicle-related crime in Roseville between May 1-6:

Over the past couple of weeks, Roseville Police have received a few reports of vehicle burglaries occurring in the late afternoon/evening hours in parking lots along Taylor Road and the Creekside area.  The unknown suspect punched the locks and took any items of value found in the vehicles-laptop computers, i-Pods, and portable GPS units. 

Possible suspects, two white males driving an older red Honda car with oxidized paint, were seen in the area of one of the vehicle break-ins.

Tip from Roseville Police:  As always, don't leave valuable items, especially your wallet or purse, in your vehicle.  If you see someone acting suspiciously in a parking lot, cruising slowly around with no apparent purpose, or looking into vehicles, call 911 immediately. An officer will respond and check them out.

Gas siphoning —Overnight on April 30/May 1, someone broke the locking gas cap of a vehicle at 5 Marcia Way and siphoned gas.

Overnight on April 30/May 1, someone went into a locked vehicle parked in the 1700 block of Meadowlark Way and took a portable GPS unit, a cell phone charger and other small items.  There was no sign of forced entry.

Overnight on April 30/May 1, someone went into an unlocked vehicle in a driveway in the 6100 block of Crater Lake Drive and took the vehicle registration paperwork and a portable GPS unit.

Between 7 and 9 p.m. May 5, someone broke the window of a car parked in the 300 block of North Sunrise, and took a purse that had been hidden underneath the front passenger's seat.  By the time the victim discovered the burglary, her credit cards had already been used to make unauthorized charges at local businesses.

Tip from Roseville Police: Never leave your purse, wallet or other valuables in your car. The thieves know all the "good" hiding places-and they might already be in the area watching.

Between 1:30 and 4 a.m. May 6, someone broke the window of a vehicle in an apartment complex lot at 300 Cirby Hills Way and took a laptop computer, a wallet containing ID cards and debit cards, and camping gear.

Tip from Roseville Police:  Apartment complex parking lots are popular targets for thieves, especially at night. Please don't leave your purse, wallet and other valuable items in your vehicle.
