Turlock Police are investigating an arson fire that scorched some of the wooden play structure at Donnelly Park. The fire was reported at 10 p.m. Tuesday night and quickly doused out by Turlock fire fighters. A propellant was used at the base of the structure to start the fire, Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Mayra Lewis said.
A year-long multiagency operation of federal and state law enforcement served search warrants and made arrests Wednesday at multiple locations in Stanislaus and Merced counties as part of an ongoing investigation into a narcotics ring trafficking in methamphetamine and marijuana.
Two Turlock men are prison bound for their roles in a drug operation that was busted by the Turlock Police Department last year in a raid that resulted in the seizure of half a pound of methamphetamine and more than $18,000 in cash.
