Weekly Lowlights From the Turlock Police Log


This edition of the Weekly Lowlights is meant to “inform, not inflame.”

I’m just going to play it straight with no personality or humor at all because we wouldn’t want to make anyone uncomfortable or publically responsible whatsoever for their actions – or lack of actions.

On March 11, Paul Schriver, 48, was arrested by Turlock Police for allegedly being in possession of brass knuckles discovered during a probation search at 11:31 a.m. near the intersection of North Front Street and Almond Avenue. That is all.

Ah, who am I kidding, I’m too “Looney Tunes” to play it straight.

Speaking of “Looney Tunes,” this week’s lowlight of the week is one Fudd-tastic tale of tomfoolery at the Quik Stop on Geer Road. Police say that at 1:17 a.m. on March 18 a man entered the store in hunting attire, including a black and tan hat similar to the one Elmer Fudd from “Looney Tunes” might wear.

The man came into the store with what appeared to be a fake shotgun and demanded money, but eventually fled on bicycle with nothing stolen. Maybe it was one of those fake cartoon shotguns where the tip of the barrel is unusually large in comparison to real shotguns. I wonder if the suspect dressed like Elmer said, “be vewy vewy quiet, I’m hunting wabbit,” and then tip-toed out of the store without actually taking anything. Quickly pan over behind the register and there’s Bugs Bunny leaning against the register loudly chewing on a carrot, “Eh, what’s up doc? What a maroon!”

The suspect remains at large, but once in a while you might catch him on a random local cable affiliate channel. Which is a shame, because “Looney Tunes” are hilarious and should be aired on a regular basis. That’s it, now I will have to search programs and record with my DVR.

In another odd incident, at 7:25 p.m. on March 19 police responded to some sort of complaint at the Del Taco on Fulkerth Road. The suspect, who is not identified, was arrested for resisting arrest. Maybe the suspect just wanted to finish his taco before being hauled off to jail. Who wouldn’t? Del Taco has some tasty tacos and burritos.

On March 14 Arturo Rodriguez was arrested at Sharkey’s, 700 West Hawkeye Ave. Rodriguez was contacted as a suspect committing fraud at the business. Police found him with an allegedly stolen ATM card, fictitious currency and conveniently some hydrocodone. Rodriguez must have been pretending he was a big balla, shot calla, but without 20-inch rims on the Impala… and some allegedly stolen hydrocodone from his mom’s medicine cabinet.

Blake Amos, 24, was arrested for commercial burglary at 9:34 p.m. March 18 at Walmart on Fulkerth Road, after he allegedly concealed a pair of shoes on himself and tried to leave the store without paying. Perhaps Amos had a big date to get to, and he needed some new kicks to sport for his lady friend. His busted old shoes weren’t going to cut it, and he only had enough money for the date. What a pickle!

That same day at just before 10 p.m. in the 3300 block of Entertainment Way, Arturo Franco, 30, was found by police to be in alleged possession of methamphetamine and morphine pills. We can only hope he wasn’t going on a date and that those drugs were only for his personal “entertainment.”

    Wow, stealing shoes from Walmart. That's sad!!!

    At least you realized the Journal's article was aimed at you and what was once a news site, turned trashy tabloid. Too bad you didn't listen to what they had to say. The credibility of this site has diminished to the point where everything stated is questionable. Too bad, Turlock City News had potential, but because their "journalist" want to be the first to "print" "breaking news", rather than gathering all the facts first or getting all sides of the story, their credibility is shot.

    Too Bad,

    We saw “inform, not inflame” on Facebook... the questionable source for "news," apparently. It seems that title was from an opinion piece as well, not really a "news" article, but rather a blog post from an editor of a dying print media. The only way people saw it was by posting it on Facebook because the local newspaper probably gets thrown away in the Downtown garbage cans more than it is read.

    People post the pictures of the unread newspapers in the garbage cans on Facebook. We're sure the corporate newspaper company doesn't accept what's on Facebook as a legitimate source of what's really going on in our community, so you can keep ignoring reality.

    Thank you for visiting and commenting on Turlock's #1 news source!

  • PaulWatkins on How does a real estate agency work? "Hi Dans Andrew, I'm glad you have made the right decision because a real estate agency is a promising career. Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
  • paul on Why are customer reviews important during online shopping? "The most crucial component of every online store is its customer reviews. Reviews can assist other customers in determining whether or not the business and its items are worthwhile purchases. If you earn positive evaluations, your brand will gain an enormous reputation and rank better on Google. According to Google's recently modified algorithm, a business can increase its performance by obtaining reviews. This is the rationale behind inquiries about reviews on Google, Facebook, and other online clothing stores for women."
