Significant Events and Trends
Street Crimes Unit
The Street Crimes Unit has been conducting follow up on a hit and run which occurred last week, where a 13 year old was struck on N. Olive Ave. A tentative identification has been made on the driver and he is a familiar gang member/associate. It appears the car was taken to San Jose and the unit is working to locate the car and develop enough probable cause to arrest the suspect.
An area of Turlock suffered a power outage due to an auto crash from a speed contest where officers discovered a collision with two poles down and individuals with minor injuries. The drivers state they were driving at 50 mph when one of their tires blew out, causing the wreck. Contrary to their statements, initial skid analysis shows speeds to be over 100 mph. The investigation should be completed next week to be forwarded to the D.A.’s office for prosecution of a speed contest.
During an argument, a 23 year old male was stabbed in the chest by a suspect 52 years old. The suspect began to walk away from the scene when he heard sirens, but was detained by incoming officers. It appears the fight was over approximately $40.
Commercial burglaries fell to almost nothing during the week. Residential burglaries fell very slightly, but continue at a high rate.
