ORANGEVALE (CBS13) — An Orangevale man was arrested on several charges including robbery and grand theft of a dog on Tuesday, Roseville police said.
Police say detectives were following up on a residential burglary suspect around 8 a.m. Tuesday and tracked the suspect, Sergey Artemenko, to a home on the 8700 block of Pershing Drive. When the detectives arrived at the home they quickly took the suspect into custody.
While executing a search warrant of the suspect’s home, detectives located a suspicious device that resembled an explosive and numerous pieces of suspected stolen property. The Sacramento County Explosive Ordnance Device Team responded to the scene and ultimately deemed the device safe.
A nearby school, Orangevale Open, was placed on lockdown for approximately 10 minutes due to the police activities, San Juan Unified School District said.
Police also found a stolen dog, Mona, in the home. The dog was returned safely to its owner.
Artemenko was booked into the South Placer Jail on robbery and theft of a dog charges. He is being held on $190,000 bail. Detectives also linked him to a vehicle burglary, identity theft, and being a felon in possession of ammunition. Those charges will be sent to the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office for review.
