Roseville PD Arrests 3 Burglars Thanks to Citizen Tip

Three suspected vehicle burglars were recently arrested in East Roseville thanks to an alert citizen’s report of suspicious activity, according to an official weekly crime report issued by the Roseville Police Department

Tyler Justin Michael Murphy, 24, and Leonard Allen Velasco, 22, both of Elk Grove, and Yer Yang, 27, (no permanent address) were reportedly arrested on suspicion of attempted burglary, possessing stolen property and conspiracy.

According to Roseville PD, at 7:45 pm on Monday, November 3, officers responded to a citizen tip that two men with flashlights were looking into vehicles in the 24 Hour Fitness Center parking lot in the 300 block of North Sunrise Avenue. The suspects were then reportedly driving away in a U-Haul truck.

Officers reportedly spotted the truck in a nearby parking lot and made contact with three people in the truck. Two of those individuals were reportedly found to be on probation, allowing officers to search the truck. Inside the the truck, officers reportedly found drug paraphernalia, burglar’s tools, and stolen property from a recent Roseville vehicle burglary. Upon their investigation, officers reportedly concluded the suspects were in the area looking for more vehicles to break into.

Tyler Murphy must be very familiar with the booking process, even at his relatively young age. Record show 15 arrests since 2010, and nine in the past year alone. He has been charged at various times with burglary, petty theft and possession of stolen property, along with possession of a controlled substance, being under the influence, and probation violations. In July of 2010 he was charged with arson and possession of flammable material, and trespassing, along with being under the influence. No further details of that incident were available.

    I would highly appreciate it if you delete this article, or at least erase my name before I make any further discussion with my Attorney. This case was dismissed due to insufficient evidence, also being arrested by Rosville Police Department and booked in jail with 4 different charges based on assumptions.

    this ahole Leonard Velasco was just arrested again for mail theft, mail fraud and identity fraud. last Nov 24 he was pulled over while smoking pot and officers found a loaded weapon under the drivers seat. I hope this creep goes to prison for a very, very long time. He does not deserve anything less.

    Leonard Allen Velasco – You stole mail from my mailbox on Christmas 2014. You wrote a check drawn out of my credit card account payable to yourself. (I have a copy of the check from the bank. That’s how I know it’s you). You have inspired me to write this poem:
    Luckily the bank called me first so you got squat. I’m thrilled to hear that you got caught. You hit the jackpot, or so you thought. But I forgive you, NOT! In jail you will rot.

    Now a haiku or two:
    Leonard Velasco
    My name means small **** douche bag
    You’ll find me in jail.

    I will be out soon
    With my ******* much looser
    Thanks a lot Bubba.
