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.
