Team served an arrest and search warrant in the 1100 block of Pedras Road at the request of the Oakdale Police Department.

There were no injuries as a result of this incident and the incident was brought to a successful conclusion. Turlock Police Department was assisted by several agencies including Oakdale Police Department, Ceres Police Department, Merced County Sheriffโ€™s Department, and the Stanislaus County Sheriffโ€™s Department. The resources that each of these agencies brought forward to this incident ensured that Turlock Police Officers would be able to complete the task in a manner which kept the community safe, and reduced the likelihood of injury to its officers. โ€œI am very proud of our SWAT Team and our Hostage Negotiations Team (HNT). They did an outstanding job insuring the safety of the public and apprehending an extremely violent and volatile person. A special thank you to Ceres Police Department who allowed us to borrow their Bear Cat Armored Insertion and Rescue Vehicle. If not for the use of this vehicle, our officers would have been in critical peril. Another thank you to the Merced SWAT Team for bringing an electronic device to the scene after our only one was destroyed by the suspect, and to the Stanislaus County Sheriffโ€™s Department for the use of their drone.โ€ said Chief Amirfar.
