Roseville police arrest 3 men suspected of stealing from autos

Three men have been arrested for stealing items from vehicles in Roseville.

Arrested on suspicion of grand theft were Kevin Patrick McFarland, 36, of Auburn; Maksim Mishchenko, 24, of Antelope; and Stanislav M. Taran, 23, of Sacramento.

Roseville police said one of the suspects told officers he chose Roseville because residents often leave expensive belongings in unlocked vehicles.

“We hope our residents will take it as a personal challenge to ‘stop feeding the thieves,’ ” a Roseville Police Department news release states.

The men are suspected of driving through west Roseville neighborhoods early Tuesday and rummaging through unlocked vehicles. Detectives say the men are suspected in six thefts so far. They also might be involved in similar thefts in the Quail Glen, Blue Oaks and Fiddyment Farm neighborhoods.
