A Citrus Heights man has been arrested in connection with several burglaries that have occurred in the city in recent weeks.
Citrus Heights police officers contacted a suspicious looking man in the 7800 block of Sayonara Drive about 2:34 a.m. today. The man, identified as Scott Alan James, 42, was found to be in possession of jewelry, and officers located a flat-screen television and other property nearby, according to a Police Department news release.
The property was found to belong to a resident in the 6600 block of Rinconada Drive. Police said the home had been broken into and the property stolen while the residents slept.
