The Roseville and Rocklin police departments urge residents to be on the lookout for a pickup truck seen in the area of recent daytime residential burglaries in the two cities.

Roseville police on Friday released a photo of a truck seen near one of the Rocklin burglaries that they said is similar to the description of a truck seen near Sun City Roseville burglaries.

Between April 12 and May 1, four daytime burglaries were reported in Sun City Roseville. A white male between the ages of 25 and 35 was seen in the area of three of the burglaries driving a light blue or gray late-model four-door pickup, likely a Chevrolet, according to a Roseville Police Department news release.

Over Memorial Day weekend, three homes in Rocklin were burglarized while victims were out of town. Roseville police said one of the burglaries occurred between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Anyone who recognizes the truck or has other information that might help solve the burglaries is asked to call Detective Bonner at the Roseville Police Department, 916-746-1075, or Detective Booker at the Rocklin Police Department, 916-625-5400.

Police remind residents to be alert for “casing” activity, such as people knocking on doors, then going around to the backyard if no one answers, or people who are not familiar to the neighborhood loitering or slowly cruising the area. Anyone who observes such activity is advised to immediately report it to the local police department. Callers should be prepared to give the dispatcher a description of the suspicious people and their vehicle, including a license plate number if possible.
