Roseville, Calif.- Tuesday afternoon, Placer County Sheriff’s detectives arrested a Roseville man who is suspected of stealing items from occupied homes, cars, and boats throughout southwestern Placer County over the past month.

Brock Anthony Kent, 22, first came to the attention of a deputy who was patrolling at 4 a.m. Monday in Granite Bay. Kent saw the deputy and pulled into a driveway and turned off his car. When the deputy approached, Kent said he lived at this home. A quick check with the homeowner proved otherwise and Kent was arrested for possession of heroin, methamphetamine, burglary tools and a probation violation. He was transported to the Placer County Jail and was released a short time later with a promise to appear.

Tuesday at 3 p.m., while a probation search was being conducted at his home, Kent ran from detectives. A short search ensued, and a Placer County detective located Kent at nearby Maidu Park, where Kent surrendered as soon as the detective’s K9 exited the car.

More than 50 similar thefts and burglaries have been reported in the Granite Bay area in the past month that may be connected to Kent. Property was recovered at his home that was related to thefts and burglaries in Granite Bay, Roseville and Rocklin. Several children’s bikes were also recovered, which are believed stolen from a Roseville apartment complex.

Kent is being held at the Placer County Jail on charges of residential burglary, receiving known stolen property, resisting/delaying arrest, felon in possession of ammunition and probation violation. His bail is set at $95,000
