Two men panhandling outside the Service Road Quik Stop store were wanted on warrants and arrested early Tuesday, Jan. 1.

Police were called at 1:31 a.m. by a store clerk about two men asking customers for money and refusing to leave after a 40-minute wait.

Marcellous McDonald, 37, of Tracy, denied he had been panhandling. Police learned that he had an outstanding Ceres Police arrest warrant for a prior theft.

The other man, Clyde Smith, 44, of Modesto, initially gave police a fake name. He had several arrest warrants related to drug offenses and driving on a suspended license. Smith was arrested and charged with providing false identification to a police officer.

Both McDonald and Smith were both booked into the Public Safety Center without incident.
