Three people suspected of burglaries in Roseville and Sacramento County were arrested following a garage burglary at a Roseville home early Monday morning.
A resident alerted Roseville police about 5:47 a.m. after seeing people carrying property out of his neighbor’s garage in the 600 block of Oakborough Avenue. The witness gave the dispatcher a description of two suspects, their vehicle and the direction they headed as they left the residence, according to a Roseville Police Department Facebook post.
A few minutes later, a Roseville officer stopped a vehicle matching the description given by the witness. Inside the car, the officer found property belonging to the victim on Oakborough Avenue, as well as items believed to have been stolen from other streets near Baseline Road, between Foothills and Junction boulevards in Roseville, and addresses in Citrus Heights and other parts of Sacramento County, police said.
Taken into custody were Anthony Tony Allmond III, 29, Amanda Dawn Phillips, 34, and Natasha LeShae Givens, 25, all of Sacramento. They were arrested on suspicion of burglary, conspiracy, possession of stolen property and related offenses. Police said they were not releasing booking photos of the suspects because of the ongoing investigation.

The suspects had a collection of garage-door remote-control devices, checkbooks and paperwork, police reported.
“We’re reminding everyone that often burglars first rummage through cars, locked or unlocked, take remotes and then use the remotes to open garage doors,” the police Facebook post said. “If you park outside, please don’t leave your remote in your car. Think of it as a key to your house, and take it inside with you.”
Police also advised people not to leave checkbooks, credit cards or personal identification in vehicles.
The victim of Monday morning’s Oakborough Avenue burglary was home at the time. Police said it appeared the intruders entered the garage through a garage door that was partially raised, possibly for ventilation.
Any victims of a burglary that occurred Sunday night or early Monday who think it might be related to the Roseville incident are advised to contact Roseville police or their local law enforcement agency and refer to Roseville Police Department case number 2017-44018. Detectives will review reports and contact any victims whose property was recovered.
