  8. Roseville Police Liaison Rob Baquera and Volunteer Coordinator Mary Helen Ivers headed the annual meeting for Neighborhood Watch Captains and volunteers. Up to six (6) captains from the WestPark – Fiddyment Farm Neighborhood Association -- Loren & Sue Cook (WFFNA & Ironcrest), Joe Van Zant (Settler’s Ridge), Lita Freeman(Sentiero), Dennis Kelleher (The Club) and possibly one other person that mentioned WestPark later in the meeting. We would like to have had more of our captains present, but it was good to see a cross-section of the area was represented. Two patrol sergeants, Sgt. Bosworth and Sgt. Lewis, reviewed some recent crime stats for the City of Roseville -- while property crime had risen 2% (mainly at the Galleria mall), the overall crime rate was down 9% (lower than surrounding regions) as compared to the same time in 2013. They discussed most recent crime trends -- theft of delivered packages off porches (including medications), rise of heroin use, and continued metal thefts. They reminded everyone to report any suspicious activity right away—for active crimes call 911 and for anything else call the Roseville Police non-emergency number (916) 774-5000. Residents should call the police directly, and notify their Neighborhood Watch captains after reporting the incident. Within the next year, the Police Department plans to expand its coverage, adding a Beat 7 (which would include our WFFNA area). One police officer was recently hired, but 8 officers are needed to cover another beat. The Roseville Police Department currently has about 12 staff officers on duty during peak hours. The patrol sergeants also warned about latest scams in the area: People soliciting donations around the Galleria mall and at intersections—they actually make large sums doing this as their ‘business’; People fake accidents and try to collect on the spot to keep it 'unreported'; Posing as fake company/utility representatives and then committing thefts once inside homes (usually two people – one to distract the occupant while the second one performs the theft); General reminders: Don’t leave garage doors open even partway -- the police officer on duty will knock on your door if they see garage doors open at night; Keep cars locked if they are parked on the street or in driveways (recommendation is to clean out garages and park cars inside); take advantage of free programs for ID etching on your car’s catalytic converter -- find participating agencies on the Roseville Police Department website; Watch for thefts during property sales -- keep valuables packed away, make sure someone is attending viewers at all times; Keep your side gates locked; keep home alarms in good working order (must keep City registration updated). Rob led a round table discussion about getting Neighborhood Watch groups started -- how to develop teams in areas; encourage consistent meetings; make them ‘social’ events. If needed, a conference room at the Roseville Police Department can be reserved. Remind neighbors to sign up for the ‘vacation check’ program if they’re going out of town -- the form is available on the Police website. Promote newsletters and email groups to keep communication fresh for 'alerts'. To find out more about the Neighborhood Watch program in your WestPark – Fiddyment Farm development, contact us here. We still have developments that need captains to organize Neighborhood Watch in their areas.

  11. Body found by Dry Creek in May identified--death classified as homicide Roseville Police Department detectives are looking for witnesses or anyone with information about the disappearance and death of 19-year-old John Alpert of Palmdale. On May 15, someone fishing in Dry Creek near Atkinson Street found human remains near the creek bed. Roseville Police detectives and crime scene investigators examined the scene and collected the remains. It appeared that the person had been dead for a few months. Roseville detectives worked with the Placer County Sheriff's Coroner's Division to identify the deceased person. In late June, the Coroner identified the deceased person as 19-year-old John Paul Alpert of Palmdale, a missing person from Los Angeles County. By all accounts, John was a responsible and caring young man who had never been in trouble with the law. He lived at home, helping his parents and attending community college. He left Palmdale in March to have an adventure--traveling north with a group of illegal freight train riders. He had never illegally ridden the rails before. He stopped communicating with his family soon after he left. Concerned for his safety, his family reported him missing to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office on March 25. Detectives believe that Alpert arrived in Roseville on a freight train between March 16 and 17, where he met his death. His body had unexplained injuries consistent with blunt force trauma, and detectives have classified his death as a homicide. Detectives need help and information from the public. Anyone who has any information about Alpert's death, or who saw Alpert in Roseville in mid-March, or had any contact with freight train riders in Roseville around that time is asked to call the Roseville Police Department's Investigations Unit at (916)774-5070. ------------------------------------------------------------ Got a Crime Tip?

  12. News & Events A "snake scam" that started in the Bay Area has reared its ugly head in Roseville. Burglars posing as animal control officers visited at least two neighborhoods in Roseville on Monday. Their M.O. was to knock on residents' doors and ask to check the property for poisonous snakes. While the homeowner is distracted, an accomplice steals items from the home. According to an August 28 article in the San Jose Mercury News, scam-artists hit six Bay Area cities between August 20-27, wearing uniforms that made them look like city or PG&E workers, often targeting elderly residents. They knocked on the residents' doors and told them they needed to trim back a neighbor's tree or check their property for poisonous snakes. When the resident took the "worker" to the back yard, an accomplice entered the house through the unlocked door and stole cash, jewelry and other items of value. It's very unusual for city or other utility workers to make unsolicited calls on residents without advance notice, especially on a weekend or holiday. If anyone claiming to be a city or utility worker comes to your door, and you haven't requested service, be suspicious. Close and lock your door (or better yet, don't open your door to any stranger in the first place), and then call the city department or utility company at their published number to find out if they've sent workers to your neighborhood for any reason. Don't call a telephone number provided by the "worker", as call might be answered by an accomplice. If you have any doubt at all, call police immediately and ask for an officer to check them out. Give the dispatcher a good description of the "workers," including a description of their vehicle and a license number if possible. If you live in Roseville and were visited by a so-called city worker checking for snakes (or any other pretext) over the weekend, we'd like to know more about it. Please call the Roseville Police Department at (916)774-5000, extension 1. ------------------------------------------------------------ Police Beat 2 East Roseville Meadow Oaks: At about 3:45 p.m. Monday, September 2, a woman wearing a brown animal control uniform knocked on a resident's door on Chancellor Avenue, and asked if she could check the yard for poisonous snakes. Fortunately, the resident became suspicious, as he had heard about the Bay Area snake scam, and didn't let the woman into his house. He called police about fifteen minutes later. Officers checked the area but weren't able to locate the suspicous person. ------------------------------------------------------------ Police Beat 3 Central Roseville, south of the tracks Cresthaven: Between 5 and 5:40 p.m. Monday, September 2, a woman knocked on a resident's door in the area of Cirby Way and Inglis Drive, and told her she was from Roseville Animal Control, and that she needed to check the property due to an infestation of poisonous snakes. She asked that both the resident and her husband accompany her to the back yard, where she spent some time measuring a back yard shed. She then told the resident that someone would be back later to set traps. Later the resident discovered items missing from her home, apparently stolen by an unseen accomplice while the residents were in the backyard with the fake "animal control officer." The suspect was described as an Hispanic woman in her late 20s or early 30s, about 5'3" tall and a stocky build, with dark, shoulder-length hair. She wore a navy blue button-up shirt with a City of Roseville logo, and khaki pants. ------------------------------------------------------------ Got a Crime Tip?

  14. Published on Apr 22, 2013 City of Roseville, CA - Police Department - Don't be a victim of theft Also from one of our neighborhood beat officers - these tips: "I am Officer Bob Abbott with the Roseville Police Department. I normally work day shift patrol in beat 6, which includes the West Park Fiddyment Farms neighborhood. I have reviewed the recent crime statistics for the neighborhood and have noticed there have been several reported incidents of thefts from both locked and unlocked vehicles. The purpose of this email and my goal is to lower the risk of having property stolen from our vehicles or having our vehicles broken into. I would like to provide some tips for the neighborhood as a reminder, that can prevent some of the occurrences of this crime: 1. Do not leave valuables or anything that will attract attention in plain view no matter where you park your car. It only takes seconds for a thief to break a window and grab property. 2. Take all valuables with you, or place them in your trunk (if your car has a trunk) prior to reaching your destination. You never know when someone is watching you. 3. Do not leave signs that there may be valuables in your car, like windshield suction cups that hold GPS systems. 4 If you have a car alarm or other anti theft device , utilize it they do work. 5. Lock your car and make sure all the windows are rolled all the way up. 6. Choose your parking spot wisely. Thieves are looking for vehicles to enter with the lowest probability of being seen. 7. Report any suspicious activity that you see in your neighborhood. It is ok if we end up contacting an innocent person, all the better if not. 8. If you have been victimized, call the police immediately and be prepared to provide the most complete description of your stolen items. Commonly stolen and very tempting items for a thief to steal include cell phones, cameras, mobile GPS devices, laptop computers and tablets, money, purses, wallets and stereo equipment. If anyone has any questions or would like to contact me further, my department cell phone number is 916-871-3260. I can also be reached at babbott@roseville.ca.us"
  15. Police Beat 6 West Roseville Quail Glen, burglary: Do you recognize this burglar? At about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, March 6, someone broke the window of a restaurant at the corner of Woodcreek Oaks Boulevard and Pleasant Grove Boulevard, and stole the safe with money. He also broke windows of two adjacent businesses. While we can't always accurately read clothing colors and skin tone from nighttime surveillance photos (some night-vision cameras reverse dark and light tones), the suspect appears to be a tall African-American male adult. He was wearing a long-sleeved shirt, jeans and a ballcap with a Superman logo on it. If he looks familiar, let us know. See the article in this newsletter about how to submit a tip. You can anonymously call, email or text us--whatever works best for you. However you submit the tip, you could qualify for a cash reward if the information you provide leads to an arrest.

  16. Three Roseville businesses are stepping up to help prevent catalytic converter thefts. If you own a Toyota truck or SUV, or other high-profile truck or SUV frequently targeted by catalytic converter thieves, call one of these participating businesses to have your catalytic converter etched and painted for free. This will make your catalytic converter less attractive to thieves, harder for them to resell, and easier for law enforcement to trace back to the rightful owner. View the full article
