Why isn't he arrested?: Man wants suspect in custody.


A Carmichael man with video and identification of a man who allegedly broke into his apartment Wednesday wants to know why the suspect isn't under arrest.

"I got his face, got pictures of his tattoos, found his Facebook and everything, got his full name, phone number," said John Best, of the suspect who broke into his apartment Wednesday.

The male suspect smashed out a bedroom window before ransacking Best's place and stealing a Playstation Four and other items.

"Here's him trying to sell the Playstation Four he stole from me here for $350.00 or best offer," Best said, pointing to the suspect's Facebook page.

Best was able to recognize the suspect in his security camera video as a man who'd visited his apartment with a friend a week before the break-in. But he claims detectives seem less than eager to solve the case.

Rancho Cordova cop mistakenly shoots at another cop


A Rancho Cordova police officer accidentally shot at a fellow police officer early Tuesday morning as he wrapped up looking into a call. Police said neither officers were injured in the incident.

The officer, a 10-year veteran with the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department currently working with Rancho Cordova, responded to an apartment building in the 11200 block of Point East Drive around 4:40 a.m. The resident called dispatch to report hearing voices taunting him from across the street. The officer talked to the man and determined he was intoxicated but able to take care of himself, creating no threat to himself and others.

As the officer was leaving the apartment, he stepped into the dimly lit and self-enclosed stairwell. At the bottom of the stairs, the officer encountered a “darkened figure” who he believed was holding a weapon.

The officer then fired a shot at the figure.
