West Park, marijuana grow houses shut down

On September 5, officers from Roseville and a Placer County taskforce served a search warrant on two houses in a residential neighborhood and confirmed they were being used to grow commercial marijuana. Officers seized more than 1100 marijuana plants with an estimated street value of $1.17 million, and arrested three people. In early August, the Roseville Police Department received information about suspicious activity at two houses in the 2300 block of Kinsella Way. The windows of the garages were covered, and there were few signs of normal residential activity at the houses. An investigation led to the issuance of a search warrant. Detectives from the Placer County Special Investigation Unit and Roseville Police Department’s Crime Suppression Unit served the search warrant and found that both houses were being used almost entirely to grow marijuana, with sleeping quarters for the people tending the plants. Their investigation also established that the marijuana was not being grown for use in California under the Compassionate Care Act, but was being shipped for to the state of New York for illegal sales. Three people, a 65-year-old man, a 51-year-old man and a 61-year-old woman, all from Roseville, were arrested on suspicion of maintaining a place for drug use, cultivation of marijuana and conspiracy. This was a cooperative operation by the Placer County Special Investigation Unit (a taskforce comprised of officers from the California Department of Corrections, California Department of Justice, the Placer County Sheriff’s Office, Placer County Probation, the Roseville Police Department and the Rocklin Police Department), and Roseville Police Department’s Crime Suppression Unit. 

Fiddyment Farms, theft: Between September 1 and September 5, someone stole a trailer-mounted air compressor from a construction site near Crawford Parkway and Whaley Street.

Fiddyment Farms, attempted burglary and prowling: At 9:22 a.m. September 6, officers responded to a home in the 8100 block of Phillip Road. The resident heard a noise and discovered a man cutting his window screen with a knife and opening the window to a bedroom. The would-be burglar was startled and ran away into the open fields surrounding the home. The resident fired shots into the air and called police. Numerous officers surrounded the area and searched the fields and creek areas for hours, but were unable to locate the suspect. Placer County Sheriff’s Office and a CHP air unit helped in the search.  At 6:24 p.m. that evening, a resident in the 4300 block of Brick Mason Circle came home and found a man standing in his backyard. He chased the man, who jumped over the back fence and ran away into the fields. Officers found the suspect with the help of CHP’s air unit. He didn’t comply with officers’ instructions, and was apprehended by a Roseville Police K9. Officers believe he was the same man involved in the earlier burglary attempt on Phillip Road.  The 22-year-old Redding man was arrested on suspicion of prowling and resisting/delaying officers.
