A 30-year-old Ceres man was less than cooperative Wednesday morning, April 7 when Ceres Police officers tried to arrest him for a felony warrant. It took a number of officers to take the man into custody, after which they found a loaded concealed handgun in his waistband.
At 7:55 a.m. Officer Charles Rushing was notified that Sathaphone Manivongphaphonhsay, 30, of Ceres, had an outstanding felony arrest warrant for assault with a deadly weapon issued by the Citrus Heights Police Department. Officer Rushing knew where the suspect frequented and went to the 1200 block of Moonlight Drive with other officers. Manivongphaphonhsay was spotted inside a garage and was ordered to come out. He refused and began to walk to a door to the interior of the house but Officer Rushing stopped him from going inside. Officer Rushing and the other officers were able to arrest Manivongphaphonhsay, who was then booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on the Citrus Heights warrant and being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition.
