A watchful citizen alerting Roseville Police Department led to officers putting a burglary suspect behind bars, according to an official weekly crime report.
Joseph Anthony Siino III, 29, of Folsom was reportedly arrested on suspicion of burglary, possession of heroin, and several other related charges.
According to Roseville PD, at about 1:08 am on Friday, November 21, officers responded to a citizen’s call about suspicious activity — a man reportedly walking around an apartment complex in the 1400 block of Kingswood Drive, shining a flashlight into parked vehicles. The witness gave officers a description of the suspicious man and his SUV.
Officers reportedly found the SUV across the street in the parking lot of another apartment complex, and made contact with the driver. They discovered the SUV was packed full of stolen mail, checks, credit cards, and other items taken during vehicle burglaries and mailbox thefts in Roseville, Rocklin, Citrus Heights and Folsom.
Just over a month before, on October 15, Siino was picked up in the Sacramento area on charges of vehicle theft, possession of stolen property, and resisting arrest. He was arrested by a California Highway Patrol officer in Carmichael. At that time he reported a home address in Sacramento, just two miles from where he was arrested. Records show an extensive arrest history dating back at least to 2008, when he was charged with forgery. That was followed by arrests for burglary, possession of stolen property, and a switch blade, all in 2008. 2009 saw arrests for robbery and possession of stolen property. And in 2011 she was charged with possession of a controlled substance, paraphernalia, a syringe, and ammunition (prohibited by his past felon status.) According to his Facebook page, that was followed by a stint with the French Foreign Legion (or at least a trip to Europe.)
