At about 11:32 pm Wednesday night, a Turlock Police officer near the intersection of Columbia Street and Radio Street, 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 driver and identified him as Richard Jimenez, 26, of Turlock.
The officer then had his dispatcher run Jimenez and he returned with three warrants, a felony no bail for possession of ammunition by a prohibited person and vandalism, a felony $100,500 for driving under the influence of drugs causing injury, and a misdemeanor $3,020 for possession of a controlled substance and driving with a suspended driver’s license due to a DUI conviction. He was also on post release community supervision for possession of ammunition by a prohibited person, vandalism, and driving under the influence of drugs causing injury.
Jimenez was arrested and booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on charges of driving with a suspended driver’s license due to a DUI conviction and his warrants.
