The Roseville Police Department has recently arrested five suspects in three different robbery cases, according to an official weekly crime report.
On Friday, September 12 at about 4:30 am, officers stopped a car near Sunrise Avenue and Lead Hill Boulevard. Inside the vehicle, officers reportedly found two suspects with stolen property, including a purse and electronic items. Their investigation reportedly led them to a recently burglarized vehicle in a nearby hotel parking lot.
Donell Joseph Higgins, 34, and Kambarage Earnest Mayhand, 40, both of Sacramento, were reportedly arrested on suspicion of burglary, possessing stolen property and burglar’s tools, and other related charges. Mayhand has been in frequent trouble, according to records. He has been arrested at least ten times in the past 6 years, on burglary and possession of burglary tools, vehicle theft, drug and paraphernalia possession, and parole violations. In 2009 he was part of a team of three who robbed a man in a disabled vehicle outside of the Red Hawk Casino in El Dorado County. Higgins also has a past, but with fewer arrests. His charges have included vehicle theft, possession of burglary tools and stolen property, and drug charges.
Then overnight between Friday, September 12, and Saturday, September 13, someone reportedly broke into an unrented, unoccupied hotel room at the Heritage Inn on the 200 block of Harding Boulevard, and spent the night. Officers made contact with two people found inside the room and arrested them.
Bianca Vanessa Arevalo, 29, of Rocklin, and Andrew Fonzie Kingsbury, 30, of Roseville, were reportedly arrested on suspicion of burglary, possessing methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, and other related charges. Both of them have had a long history with local law enforcement as well. Records show at least seven prior arrests for Arevalo, including two incidents of petty theft, possession or being under the influence of a controlled substance, DUI, and “tresspassing on closed lands”. Kingsbury’s records show an arrest in 2007 for selling and transporting contolled substances and conspiracy. In 2012 he was charged with burglary and possession of stolen property. This year he has been previously arrested for both drug and burglary charges.
And on Sunday, September 14, at 4:30 am, two men were reportedly sitting on a bench in the 300 block of Lincoln Street when two men they did not know hit them, grabbed car keys and a cell phone, and fled. The suspects were described as white or Hispanic males, one wearing a red tank top and one wearing a white T-shirt.
Early on the morning of Monday, September 15, officers reportedly arrested one of the suspects — Edward Thompson, 43, of Roseville — on suspicion of robbery, battery and conspiracy. Officers are continuing to investigate in order to identify the other suspect.
