A suspect was arrested for battery of a police officer Friday morning after it was reported that he was in possession of a handgun that turned out to be a toy.

Turlock police received a report of a suspicious person, possibly with a firearm, in the 600 block C Street shortly after 9 a.m. Friday.

According to Turlock police spokesperson Sgt. Stephen Webb, the suspect was panhandling in a parking lot when the reporting party called police.

When the officer arrived, he saw what appeared to be the grip of a handgun sticking out of the suspect’s back pocket, said Webb.

The officer gave the suspect commands, but he refused to comply and a struggle ensued between the officer and suspect, said Webb.

Ultimately, officers were able to gain control of the suspect, but had to place him in a restraint device as he continued to be combative, said Webb.

Officers found that the gun was a plastic toy and the suspect did not point it at anyone or threaten the officer with it, said Webb.

Jose Pacheco, 21, was arrested for battery of a peace officer and resisting arrest.

The ever-expanding, never-leaving community of crazy hobos is why we left Turdlock. If I have to pay $250,000 for a liveable house, I damn sure better not be seeing this kind of riffraff wandering around. Thanks churches! You've ruined beyond...

Liquor Store adjacent to 7-11, now closing around 9:00 p.m.
Salvation Army starting construction on wrought-iron perimeter fence.
Someone shooting up near Pizza Hut,
40 + homeless in Denair Park
Young teens arguing/talk to/ not sure... to the crew in the pit at Linwood and Lander. If you drive slowly enough you might get free entertainment from the "young lady" there.
Older homeless, on bikes, around Broadway...close to the shelter there.
Also observed: The church on East near taco trucks stopped their food services, West Side Ministries stopped feeding the adult homeless, and above comment about Salvation Army says a lot.
WHAT PART OF VAGRANCY LAWS, LOITERING, ILLEGAL POSSESSION OF DRUGS DOES OUR COMMUNITY Not Understand? It's not a delicate issue. These people are aggressive. If you have ever been to a party, with an open bar, and you have a lot of people addicted attending, there ends up being fights, vandalism, and behavior we do not want around our children. These losers don't belong here and it's not a "bleeding heart liberal" or a "church" problem. I am very concerned about this epidemic of people flocking to our town. It can be fixed, and Turlock needs to get their heads out of their "good old boy" mind-set and realize that this Town does not have walls and is not incubated from reality.
