Roseville, population 48,000, is a city located in Macomb County in the state of Michigan. It was founded as early as 1837 and was part of an area known as Erin Township. Roseville officially became an independent city in 1958. It is named after the Rose family, which helped established the Roseville Post Office.
Roseville has historically been a farming community. The town was home to a sizeable Irish community and was at one point named the town of Erin after the country of Ireland. One area of historic interest in Roseville is Gratiot Avenue, which is a toll road that was built in 1843 and connects the city to Detroit and Mount Clemens. More recently, Roseville has become home to a variety of industries as well as commercial and residential properties. The city’s location near the I-94 and I-696 highways, and its proximity to Detroit have resulted in its involvement in the automobile services industry.
In February of 2008, Roseville automobile repair shop owner David Pearson was charged with committing fraud. Following a five-month investigation, Pearson was charged with one count of false pretenses, as well as possession of a firearm by a felon. The charges amounted to over $20,000. The investigation began after several customers complained that they were being billed for work on their cars that was never done. They also complained about the sub-par quality of parts being installed and faulty engine repair. Pearson had previously been convicted of issuing false insurance certificates. Roseville detectives have instructed the community to report further instances of fraud to local authorities.
