Witness Helps Police Nap Two Car Burglary Suspects in Roseville

An observant witness played a key role in the arrest of two suspected car burglars. On Sunday, May 17th, a man heard a car alarm go off in the 300 block of Sunrise Boulevard in Roseville, near where he was parked. The alarm continued to go off, so the witness drove around the lot to see what was happening. The witness realized the alarm was coming from an SUV which had its doors opened. One man was leaning into the car and one man appeared to be the lookout.

The suspects got into their car and left when they realized they were spotted. The witness took a picture of the car and then called the Roseville Police. The witness was able to give the dispatcher details, such as the license plate number, vehicle description and the direction the suspects were headed. The first officer who arrived at the scene was also able to forward the photo the witness took to other officers.

Roseville Police officers located the suspects’ car on Westbound Interstate 80 and stopped it near the Riverside exchange. Inside the car, officers found stolen property taken from the SUV, including a cell phone, purse, jewelry and a car stereo.

Police arrested Javier Anthony Garcia, 27, and Dominic Terry Eales, 21, both of North Highlands, on several charges including conspiracy, possession of stolen property and suspicion of burglary. Eales was also charged with suspicion of possessing marijuana for sale.

The stolen property was returned to the owner of the SUV, which may not have happened without the help of the witness. The Roseville Police credit the alert witness with providing a description and photo of the car to the police. They also praise the witness for using good judgement and getting the police involved immediately and not confronting the suspects himself.
