Two Arrested After Traffic Stop


At about 10:30pm Tuesday, Turlock Police Officer Macias made a traffic stop at Mitchell Avenue and N. Palm Street.

Macias made contact with and identified the vehicle’s two occupants, driver Todd Davis, 37, of Turlock, and passenger Tunet Taryorn, 39, of Turlock.

Taryorn identified himself as his brother, although this was quickly discovered as he’d done it in the past and the information was flagged. Taryorn was on searchable probation for obstructing or resisting a public officer and failure to appear and also had two misdemeanor bench warrants out of Tuolumne County for falsely identifying to a peace officer, possession of methamphetamines, possession of a controlled substance, and failure to appear.

After being confronted, Taryorn confessed and provided his real name which was known all along.

Additionally, while speaking with Davis, officers noticed he was displaying objective symptoms of being under the influence.

Based on the totality of the circumstances, Macias determined that Davis was under the influence of alcohol and arrested him.

During a subsequent search of Davis’ vehicle, Macias found a controlled substance.

Davis and Taryorn were both arrested and booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center, Davis on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol and possession of a controlled substance, and Taryorn on the charge of falsely identifying to a peace officer and his warrants.

Additionally, Davis was issued a driver’s license suspension order and his vehicle was impounded.
