A 19-year-old Turlock resident was arrested by the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department after he was found with narcotics and a replica handgun during a traffic stop.

The suspect was identified by the sheriff’s department as Daniel Fore, 19, of Turlock.

Fore was stopped by a Community Resource Deputy assigned to the Waterford Police Service for a traffic violation around 10 a.m. Thursday near Tim Bell Road and Heather Drive.

Fore is a convicted felon on probation and had a “propensity for committing armed robbery,” according to the sheriff’s department.

A probation compliance check was conducted in accordance with his court-imposed search terms. Located in the front waistband of Fore’s pants was an all-black replica Air Soft gun closely resembling a Glock semi-automatic firearm.

“Furthermore, we located a bottle of pills from Mexico, which are a generic form of Xanax,” said sheriff spokesperson Sgt. Luke Schwartz. “The pills are a controlled and federally scheduled substance prohibited from possession without a properly obtained prescription.”

Fore was arrested and booked into the Public Safety Center for possession for sale of a controlled substance.
