A female suspect was recently arrested in connection to a rash of burglaries at a senior citizens apartment complex in Roseville, according to an official press release issued by the Roseville Police Department.
Haleigh Ann Carrigan, 21 of Sacramento, was reportedly arrested on suspicion of first degree burglary, elder abuse (targeting elderly victims for burglaries, depriving them of their essential medications and other property, and financial fraud), and possession of stolen property.
According to Roseville PD, officers had recently been working with managers at a senior citizen apartment complex on Madden Lane in Roseville to solve a series of burglaries. The apartment complex staff had reportedly discovered that an unidentified young woman was entering apartments in the middle of the night while the elderly residents were sleeping, and stealing cash, bank cards, jewelry and prescription medication. At least one resident’s stolen bank card was reportedly used to make fraudulent purchases.
With the assistance of the apartment complex staff and other witnesses, officers were reportedly able to identify a potential suspect — a relative of one of the apartment’s residents. On December 30, officers served a search warrant at the suspect’s house in South Sacramento. There they reportedly found stolen property and other evidence connecting her to several of the 16 burglaries that had been reported so far. The earliest known burglary has reportedly happened in early July, and the latest in late December.
Carrigan was reportedly arrested without incident at her home. Officers reportedly believe she had familiarized herself with the complex during daytime hours and stole residents’ keys, then returned at night and burglarized their apartments while they were sleeping.
Officers are now reportedly looking into similar incidents at other senior living facilities in Roseville. Any residents of senior living complexes who are missing property are asked to file a report with the Roseville Police Department.
