A few Costco employees are being hailed as heroes after they were able to chase down and detain a male suspect who stole items from the store Monday afternoon.

At approximately 5 p.m., a suspect, later identified as 24-year-old Ravsager Singh, allegedly stole items from the Costco located at 2955 N. Tegner Rd.

Multiple Costco employees allegedly witnessed the theft, and chased Singh across North Tegner Road, to the area between Cool Hand Lukes and Candlewood Suites.

At this time, the Costco employees were allegedly able to catch the suspect and detain him until the Turlock Police Department arrived on scene.

Turlock police arrived at 5:09 p.m. and made the arrest.

Singh was arrested for grand theft.

    A few mistakes in your article, Mr. McMillan. The suspects name is Ravsagar Atwal (Singh is his middle, not last, name.) Also, the correct age is 23. Tip: Conducting a little research on crime suspects can help prevent reporting wrong information.

    Corrections, with these kinds of incidents, most of the news reported is initial information released by law enforcement agencies. Some stories are updated if and when more information is released and our readership stats show interest in an update.

    With this specific incident, Turlock Police emailed us the information.

    Thanks for the information, we may look into it further and need to get that confirmed by the Turlock Police Department.

    The correction above is CORRECT lol. DJ this is about your ex reporter cara's on again off again boyfriend Rav. And do you have any details on what he stole?
  5. Drama says:
    Why do you mention DJ? He didn't have anything to do with this story and looks like you're just muddying up the story with drama. Who cares if this is connected to Cara. She works at the Turlock Journal now.

    I would like to know what was stolen though.

    Stay professional TCN!!!

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."
