Folsom detectives track down, arrest suspected thiefBy: Telegraph Staff
In late December, Folsom Police investigated a theft of an expensive set of golf clubs from a vehicle at a Folsom home. Although the thief had gotten away with the golf clubs, he had left some evidence behind. The evidence was collected and analyzed, which led to the identification of Anatoliy Romanovich, 29, as the suspected thief.
Folsom police detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Romanovich based on the evidence they had collected.
Friday afternoon, they arrested Romanovich in North Highlands on a $500,000 felony warrant for grand theft.
“Getting away with the stolen property isn’t the same as not getting caught. Today was an example of how we pursue criminals in Folsom,” said Detective Sergeant Brian Lockhart.
Folsom police encourages residents to help fight crime by reporting suspicious activities to the communications center at 916-355-7231, watching out for their neighbors and participating in neighborhood watch programs.
