Here are the top stories in Roseville today:

  1. Roseville resident, Olympian and wrestling coach, Quincy Lee Clark was arrested for “crimes committed against minors,” on Tuesday, Roseville Police said. Clark competed for Olympics Team USA in wrestling in the 2000 Olympics and, more recently, ran a sports training business out of his home in Roseville. On a tip from a local resident, police began an investigation of Mr. Clark. The case was sent to the Placer County District Attorney’s Office on September 15 and Clark was arrested on September 20. Police said Clark was arrested on several charges, including “lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 18 years old.” Police believe there may be additional victims and ask anyone with information on the case to call Roseville police at 916-746-1059.

  2. According to the Roseville Police department, a resident in the area of Fivestar Blvd flagged down an officer and told them that they had seen a suspect throw a flaming object at an unoccupied vehicle. The suspect then fled the scene. The Roseville PD officer put out a description of the vehicle and another officer was able to make a stop of the vehicle at North Sunrise. The primary suspect was taken into custody. It is unknown at this time whether the suspect had any connection with the victim vehicle. (City of Roseville Police Department via Facebook)
  3. Due to budget shortfalls, South Placer Fire is shutting down two of its stations and decommissioning a truck. The South Placer Fire Protection District serves the communities of Granite Bay, Loomis, and the southern areas of Penryn and Newcastle. According to the announcement, Station 19, located at 7070 Auburn Folsom Road will be closed as of Saturday September 24, as will Station 15, located at 4650 East Roseville Parkway. Personnel and operations will be relocated to other stations. According to Gold Country Media “At this time, the South Placer Fire Protection District has not provided any additional comment.” (Roseville Press Tribune)
  4. Roseville Electric Utility customers could see an 11% increase starting in January 2023. Roseville Electric Utility is proposing an 8% energy surcharge in addition to an already-approved 3% increase. “These are challenging times for the electric utility industry, especially here in California. Our state is grappling with unprecedented drought and a substantial reduction in hydroelectric resources in addition to skyrocketing fuel prices,” Roseville Electric Utility wrote on its website. The utility said that the 8% surcharge is meant as a stop-gap until they can understand the impacts of the current volatile energy market. Once they understand long term impacts they will propose a base rate change, if necessary. (ABC10.com KXTV)
