A man sought in in connection with commercial burglaries in Roseville was arrested Thursday after he was stopped while driving a stolen vehicle.

Michael Joshua McKay, 35, was booked into Placer County Jail on suspicion of vehicle theft, giving a false name and for four outstanding warrants. Two of the warrants were for commercial burglaries on Harding Boulevard, according to a Roseville Police Department Facebook post.

The department’s Vice and Narcotics Enforcement Team and Crime Suppression Team were conducting operations in the Harding Boulevard area, targeting drug trafficking and other criminal activities, when officers stopped a man driving a pickup that had been reported stolen from Oregon. The driver initially gave a false name but eventually was identified as McKay, according to police.

The Police Department previously posted requests on its Facebook page asking the public’s help in locating McKay.

McKay is being held in Placer County Jail in lieu of $143,500 bail.
