Teens hurl limes at cars
TPD crime scene

Four juveniles were arrested Sunday on allegations they had been throwing objects at passing cars, including limes, the Turlock Police Department reported.

The first incident was reported by a man around 12:40 a.m. Sunday. The man told police officers he was driving on E. Canal and in the area of Turlock High School he heard something hit his vehicle. Once home the man saw the object had left a dent in his car.

Officers checked the area and spotted four juveniles running through Julien Elementary and THS. The teens were not apprehended at the time. Officers did find limes in the area.

The second report came in around 2:40 a.m. Sunday from a caller reporting four juveniles wearing black were throwing objects at cars around Dutcher Middle School.

Officers responding to the call saw the juveniles running southbound and were able to catch one in the area of Pioneer and Wakefield, Turlock Police spokesperson Officer Mayra Lewis said.

Through the investigation, officers were able to identify the other teens involved and arrested them as well.

The police department had received similar reports in the week prior, Lewis said.

The teens, all males, were 14 to 16 years old. They were cited for vandalism, throwing objects at vehicles, and curfew violations. All were released to their parents.
