Six people arrested in Roseville on burglary and drug charges

When it comes to criminal activity, most law enforcement officials would probably tell our readers that one thing often leads to another. So, when Roseville police officers arrested several people in connection with an alleged burglary ring, it shouldn't be much of a surprise that the authorities have also claimed that some of the individuals were also allegedly involved in efforts to sell drugs.

According to the reports, a seemingly random event sparked a nearly month-long criminal investigation in Roseville. Last month officers reportedly stopped what was termed as a "suspicious" vehicle, and as a result the officers are said to have recovered some stolen property. They also arrested two people who were in the vehicle.

But, that was just the beginning of the investigation. Officers subsequently served a number of search warrants throughout the local area. The searches allegedly turned up a number of stolen items that were reported as missing in commercial burglaries. A total of six people have been arrested thus far. Besides those who are facing charges in connection to the burglaries, all six are also facing drug charges.

These criminal cases are just beginning and it remains to be seen whether or not all of the charges will be consolidated into one case for each individual defendant, or if the burglary charges will be separated from the drug charges for each person. Prosecutors are often allowed to combine all of the charges into one case if the alleged criminal activities are connected. The good news for defendants when that happens is that there are often more charges that can be dropped in plea negotiations in one case, instead of working through separate cases that may be at different stages of prosecution - and may result in more total convictions.
