Last night, the Roseville Police Department graveyard patrol team (the officers who watch over the city while the rest of us are sleeping) wrapped up a lengthy residential burglary investigation with an arrest.
In late August, a resident of the Sierra Gardens neighborhood noticed several valuable tools, fishing gear and electronic items were missing from his garage. He realized that someone must have stolen them from his garage over the past week or so. He filed a report with Roseville Police and provided a detailed list of his stolen property. At that time, there were no suspects or investigative leads.
In September, our graveyard officers were doing a probation search for an unrelated case, and they happened upon checks, fishing gear and a few other stolen items that they were able to connect to the Sierra Gardens neighborhood residential burglary. They returned the property to the victim. After some further sleuthing, last night they arrested 26-year-old Joseph Jesse Duran of Roseville on suspicion of burglarizing an occupied home, and booked him into the Placer County Jail. Additional arrests in the case are likely.
Way to be “relentless”, patrol graves!
