  • IRS Scam Continues as Tax Season Passes
    IRS Scam Continues as Tax Season Passes The Turlock Police Department is warning Turlockers of an ongoing scam involving suspects posing as Internal Revenue Services agents. Turlock police originally warned Turlockers of the scam in March, after receiving a report of fraud on Feb. 28. At that time, a victim was told that he was behind on his taxes and he needed to wire transfer a set amount of money to an account given by the scammer, or face jail time. On Thursday, the Turlock Police Department announced that “officers have taken an alarming amount of fraud reports involving subjects posing as IRS agents who have defrauded victims of thousands of dollars.”

    Drunk Turlock Man Hits, Runs From Multiple Accidents After Argument With Woman A Turlock man was arrested Thursday afternoon after he fled from the scene of multiple accidents and abandoned his vehicle. The suspect, Harold Mitchell, 26, was arrested for DUI, hit and run, misdemeanor domestic violence, and child endangerment. Mitchell was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with a female victim in the 100 block of North Avenue, near Crowell Elementary School, around 3:45 p.m. on Thursday, said Turlock Police Department spokesperson Officer Mayra Lewis.
  • Weekly Lowlights From the Turlock Police Log
    Weekly Lowlights From the Turlock Police Log Combing through the police log this week, I couldn’t help but notice a disproportionate number of female arrestees. Nearly half of those arrested between April 10 and April 17 were women. Typically, the log is filled with male names, perhaps with a few females sprinkled in here and there. But I guess recently there were a lot of good girls gone bad. Well… I’m assuming they were good in the first place.
