A traffic advisory is being warned at Daubenberger and Verduga roads, as the Turlock Police Department reports a suspect allegedly set his house on fire and may be armed. Due to the ongoing incident, Daubenberger Road is closed at Canal Drive and East Avenue and Verduga Road is closed at Hawkeye and East avenues. East Avenue is closed at Daubenberger Road and Roselawn Avenue. The house fire is located on the 400 block of Verduga Road in Denair.
What is considered by many people to be a mysterious, if not downright creepy, old house, is actually nothing more than a massive annoyance and headache for owner Dennis Roach, 74. Roach said the house has been ransacked and broken into a half-dozen times since March, and during the latest break-in burglars stole thousands of dollars in lawn care equipment, including his Craftsman riding lawn mower and weed trimmer. The thieves also cut the power to the house, which was meant as a deterrent to would-be intruders.
