ROSEVILLE (CBS13) – It was a “see something, say something” moment for some Roseville retail employees that led to the arrest of a man with eight warrants out in four counties.

The incident happened Tuesday morning at a store along the 900 block of Pleasant Grove Boulevard.

Roseville police say employees saw a man – later identified as David Franklin Tietjen – apparently casing some items at a store. Another man, Nathan Mark Gallagher, was seen circling outside in a car.

When officers arrived, Gallagher took off. But he eventually pulled over and officers found over $2,000 worth of stolen items in his car. Gallagher, as officers also discovered, had eight warrants for his arrest out of four counties.

Tietjen also led officers on a short foot chase but was also soon arrested.

Both men have been booked into jail facing charges of organized retail theft.

    Yep because California is basically getting rid of holding criminals accountable for their actions and instead just releasing them back into society. Just wait until October when they will be sited and released, because of the no bail prop. Stupid voters and politicians in California.
