Roseville police are investigating eight recent break-ins that have struck a variety of businesses in the same general area.
The string of break-ins began between 3 p.m. Aug. 3 and the morning of Aug. 4 when someone broke the window of a chiropractic office in the 1800 block of East Roseville Parkway. The burglar took office equipment and other items.
Then, overnight Aug. 4, someone smashed the glass front door of a small restaurant in the 1800 block of Douglas Boulevard. Taken was cash from the register and several bottles of alcohol.
The third break-in occurred between 3 p.m. Aug. 5 and 9 a.m. Aug. 6, when someone broke into a chiropractic office in the 100 block of South Harding Boulevard. The office was rummaged, but nothing was taken.
The next night, around 2:30 a.m., someone broke the glass doors of two businesses: a restaurant-beer pub and a beauty salon in the 9200 block of Sierra College Boulevard. The burglar made off with the cash drawer from the beer pub. The beauty salon had the window broken but nothing taken.
Surveillance video indicates that the burglar’s head was wrapped in a t-shirt, not allowing for a good image of the suspect.
On Thursday, officers responded to an alarm at a cell phone repair business in the 1800 block of Douglas Boulevard and found the back door had been pried to make entry. Cell phones and computer equipment were taken.
On Saturday, at 1:08 a.m., officers responded to a burglary alarm at a feed and pet store in the 8600 block of Sierra College Blvd. More information was not available.
The most recent burglary occurred just before 5 a.m. Monday. Officers responded to the tripping of a burglary alarm at a bike shop in the 1900 block of Douglas Boulevard.
Glass at the front of the store was broken and bikes were taken.
