Four Roseville and Rocklin area teenagers — including a 15 year old — were recently arrested on suspicion of stealing a car and cell phone, according to an official weekly crime report issued by the Roseville Police Department.
Tyler Robert Barber, 18, of Rocklin; Manuel Angel Cuevas Guerrero, 18, of Roseville; and Trevor Santiago Rodriguez, 18, of Rocklin, were reportedly arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft, grand theft from a person, conspiracy, and possession of stolen property. A fourth 15-year-old suspect from Roseville was also arrested on the same charges and taken to juvenile hall.
According to Roseville PD, on Sunday, August 10, 2014, just before 6 pm, a young teenagers was walking through the parking lot of Westfield Galleria at Roseville when a car pulled up next to him, and the driver asked if he could borrow the teenager’s phone to make a phone call. The teen reportedly obliged, handing his phone to the driver, who then reportedly drove away with it.
An officer reportedly spotted the suspect’s car traveling north on Galleria Boulevard, and followed the car to the area of Stanford Ranch Road and Five Star Boulevard where officers reportedly stopped the vehicle and made contact with the occupants. Officers discovered the car had reportedly been reported stolen from Rocklin earlier that day, and the officers found the victim’s cell phone inside the car. The stolen phone and car were reportedly returned to their rightful owners.
Tyler Barber had been arrested just two months ago, on June 11, for a residential burglary in Rocklin. He had broken into a screened patio at an apartment building on Springview drive. And earlier this year, in March, he was arrested for battery on a school official and vandalism. Manuel Guerrero was arrested in June on charges of conspiracy, being an accessory, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and resisting arrest. Details of that incident were not available.
