2 mins read

A burglar is being subject to a hunt of the police after he was caught on camera in Rocklin – a city with growing problems on the rise of break-in of detached garages reports coming especially from apartment centers.

In a Facebook post, the Rocklin Police Department said that burglary suspects are “defeating the outer garage lock and manually opening the door from the outside by disengaging the emergency release cord,” the Rocklin Police Department announced in a Facebook post.

Security footage showing two suspects intruding into a detached garage at The James apartment complex at West Oaks Boulevard last Sept. 21 was released by investigators on Wednesday. Several items went missing, police said, some of them are collectibles and “an irreplaceable trunk.”

Two people were seen in the video as they left the garage as they carried the big trunk. They were even caught having difficulty positioning the truck at their car’s back portion before they fled, leaving the unfastened trunk protruding out of their vehicle.

The Police Department on Thursday has released one of the alleged burglar’s photos captured on security camera. According to law enforcers, the suspect was also caught on camera as he attacked a separate garage on Oct. 4, in “broad daylight”. He was seen wearing a baseball cap, a jumpsuit, and with glasses and gloves on.

The police furthered that the car linked to the burglaries with The James seemed to be a Hyundai Elantra’s older model, or the same small car, The Sacramento Bee reported.

Anyone with details on the burglars and their vehicle can call the Police Department at 916-625-5400. The reference number for the case is 21-265-2.
