At about 12:43 am Thursday morning, a Turlock Police officer near the intersection of Lander Avenue and Montana Avenue, Turlock, observed a vehicle violate the California Vehicle Code, so he made a traffic stop on it.
The officer made contact with the vehicle’s two occupants, Michael Vanwert, 38, of Modesto, and Eric Douglas, 20, of Merced, and had his dispatcher run their information. Both subjects came back with misdemeanor drug related warrants, while Vanert came back with an additional felony burglary related warrant.
Both Vanwert and Douglas were arrested on their warrants. Vanwert was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center, while Douglas was released on a citation.
