ANDERSON, Calif. - Deputies arrested a man in Anderson Sunday evening for residential burglary.
On Sunday, Aug. 2, at approximately 6:21 p.m., Valerie Rosenstiel reported arriving home and finding an unknown man sitting in her living room. Rosenstiel ran out of her home and called 911, according to police.
Shasta County Sheriff’s deputies responded to Rosenstiel’s residence, on the 17000 block of Bright Path, Anderson. Deputies said they contacted her on the roadway. She described the man inside her residence as a white male adult wearing a red shirt and black shorts. Deputies, with the assistance of Sheriff’s Office K-9 Thor, set up a perimeter around the residence. As deputies approached the front door of the residence, they noticed the glass window on the front door was broken, and the door was slightly open.
Deputies made announcements inside the residence for the suspect to come out. A man matching the description Rosenstiel provided and later identified as 53-year-old Roger T. Darden, of Anderson, followed deputies’ commands, exited the residence, and was taken into custody without incident.
Upon inspection of the interior of the residence, it appeared Darden had searched through several of the rooms and Rosenstiel’s property, according to the sheriff's office. Darden was arrested and transported to the Shasta County Jail and booked for Felony Residential Burglary.
