Roseville police seek to identify vehicle burglary suspect

Roseville police seek to identify a suspect in several vehicle burglaries that were reported Thursday morning.

Officers responded at 7:22 a.m. to Cambridge Court in the Cirby Ranch neighborhood after a resident reported a suspicious man in a white van similar to a Chevy Astro. The man got out of the van and was peering into the windows of cars parked on the court, according to a Police Department news release.

Police subsequently received reports of five vehicle break-ins or items taken from unlocked cars on Pine Valley Circle and Daisy Court, all in the same neighborhood.

Police said the man, shown on video, appears to be white, in his 20s, with short brown hair and a thin build. He was wearing a plaid shirt and blue jeans with suspenders. In the video, he is on the phone, possibly talking to an accomplice in the area, and may be driving a white Chevy Astro or similar van, police said.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s identity is asked to call Roseville Crime Stoppers at (916) 783-7867.

Police urge anyone who observes suspicious activity, such as someone snooping around vehicles, or a crime in progress, to immediately call 911.
