A man who allegedly began throwing merchandise around inside of a Hatch Road store was later apprehended and determined to be on drugs.
Police received a 1:15 p.m. call from the store on Monday, Nov. 9, saying the man was causing problems. Before Officer Ross Bays arrived in the 1700 block of Hatch Road the suspect left, walking eastbound on Hatch Road. Officer Bays located Talwinder Bains, 30, of Ceres, in the driveway of Urgent Care in the 1900 block of Hatch Road. Bains saw the patrol car approaching and took off running. Bays ran after Bains and the suspect turned around and took a fighting stance. Bays ordered Bains to the ground but did not comply. The officer was able to handcuff the suspect after a brief physical struggle.
Bains was evaluated by paramedics and fire first responders and determined to be under the influence of drugs. Bains was booked for resisting arrest, battery on a peace officer, and violating the terms of his parole.
According to Ceres Police Department spokesman Lt. James Yandell, Bains, 30, has been arrested numerous times and is a "big time meth(amphetamine) user."
