According to Rocklin PD, on January 6, 2014, at approximately 2:30 pm, detectives from the Placer County Regional Auto Theft Task Force (RATTF) had located a stolen U-Haul pickup truck at the Heritage Inn in Rocklin. While detectives were reportedly contacting the victim by phone, a suspect exited the hotel and got into the vehicle.
