Roseville, Calif- At about 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, March 4, a resident of the 600 block of Fifteen Mile Drive heard her doorbell ring. She was busy upstairs and decided not to answer her door. A few minutes later, she heard the sound of a downstairs bedroom window breaking. As the resident walked downstairs to investigate, she encountered a stranger walking up her stairs. The stranger fled out the front door.
The burglar was described as an Asian male in his 20s, approximately 5’7″ tall and 160 pounds, clean-shaven, with short brown hair and brown eyes. He wore a light brown short-sleeved shirt, light brown shorts, and gray gloves. He was seen driving away from the area in a dark green 1990s model four-door sedan, possibly a Honda Accord.
