Two men riding in a car stopped Thursday evening for code violations were in possession of methamphetamine and a gun and were arrested.

Officer Jacob Valenzuela was on patrol in the area of Don Pedro and Collins roads at 10:26 p.m. when he stopped an Acura TL. When the car came to a stop, both driver Burris Fisher, 36, of Keyes and passenger Michael Correll, 36, of Turlock, got out and began walking away. Burris stopped when ordered to do so but Correll ran off. Valenzuela chased Correll on foot and caught up to him on Moffett Road. While searching the pockets of Correll’s pants, Officer Valenzuela located three baggies of methamphetamine that had a combined weight of over 50 grams.

Officers who came to the scene located a gun next to where Correll was taken into custody. Correll was prohibited from possessing a gun and ammunition due to prior felony convictions. He was arrested and booked on charges of resisting arrest, possession of a firearm, possession of ammunition and possession of methamphetamine for sales.

Fisher was charged with possession of methamphetamine and heroin and charged. Both Correll and Fisher were booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center.
