Sabrina Rodriguez/TurlockCityNews.com

School has been back in session for only a week now and police have already been called out to the Brown Elementary campus.

The Turlock Police Department responded to a report of a Turlock Unified School District employee finding a bag that contained a box of ammunition and a magazine at Brown Elementary.

Mike Trainor, TUSD Assistant Superintendent of Business Services, confirmed the Wednesday, 6:50 a.m. incident.

“Prior to students and staff arriving to the Brown campus, a custodian found a bag of ammunition hanging on a door handle,” said Trainor.

Turlock police spokesperson Officer Mayra Lewis added, “This appears to be an isolated incident and the students and school staff at Brown Elementary are safe.”

TUSD stated that the incident was resolved by 7:20 a.m. and Turlock Police said that the school grounds went back to being safe before classes were to be in session.

Turlock police confiscated the ammo and magazine, however, there was no weapon to be found.

TUSD notification of the incident was sent home to the Brown Elementary School families early yesterday afternoon.

“The school out of common courtesy, made a notification that was sent home to the parents/ guardians of the students that afternoon,” said Trainor. “We continue to work cooperatively with the Turlock Police Department on this isolated incident.”

    Out of common courtesy… really my children go to that school n was upset that all this happened before school and was notified after school. I have every right to know if ammunition was found on school grounds. I am upset to see that the school and police department seem to take it do lightly.

  2. Turk says:

    Yvette, what should they have done? Closed down the school? Demolished the block? Carpet bombed the town? Jesus stop complaining.

    Good Lord Yvette; get your panties out of a wad. Do you even participate in any school activities, like PTA, or do you just sit back and (*edited by tcn) at the district and school? And by the looks of your writing/grammar, i hope your kids get a better education than you received.

    Hey Turk? I bet you’re really mike trainer. If all the good ole boys didn’t back you up you’d be without a job little man. What? Now you gotta hide behind trevethan the pig farmer? Hahahahahahahaha

    My son goes to school there. I don’t care if they felt it was safe or not. Parents should have been notified immediately, not three hours after school was out. The teacher didn’t even mention anything when I dropped my son off that morning.

  6. Jill says:

    “Isolated incident” how many schools have mass shootings twice? This ended up being nothing, but parents should have been notified immediately.

  7. Grandma Dee says:

    Any fingerprints?

  8. The collapse says:

    It is no longer safe in turlock. The economic collapse is here and it’s about to get worse. You better prepare your families for what is about to come.

  9. One Who Knows says:

    Talk about blowing something out of proportion! How is it the school districts fault some idiot put a bag of ammunition on a door? Calling Dana Trevethan names is so uncalled for. And anyone else for that matter, you obviously have a personal beef. The officials were notified, the children were safe and it was handled appropriately. Dana is the best thing to happen to the school district in a very long time.

  10. Caninus spiritus says:

    Trevethan is an idiot. Why doesn’t Tusd try to bring in anyone from the Bay Area or Sacramento area to be at the upper levels in the district. They only hire their csu stanislaus buddies. Turlock’s always going to be stuck and will never grow. If you want to see what Turlock will become go to Antioch. Horrible schools, run by the good ole boys. I’m in Sunnyvale now, where you’re held accountable based on performance unlike pig farming town turdlock.

    Mike is actually one of the good ones over there. Be careful what you wish for. TUSD did being somebody from another district. It not always greener on the other side.

  12. Caninus spiritus says:

    Are you talking da marto? If so he was considered the worst principal in the peninsula. How is trainer good? He sits on his ass all day and doesn’t do anything. His position is pointless. You’re just a bunch of inbred Portuguese farmers anyway LOL

  13. You're such an ass Caninus spiritus says:

    You’re a troll with a beef. You’re in Sunnyvale because you got fired from TUSD for being a (*edited by tcn). This is a strong district and I’m glad my kids went to school here. Oh and in case you’re completely blind you’d know CSUS is nationally considered a very fine school. Get a life loser.
