An early Monday traffic stop on a car that had mechanical issues which needed to be addressed with the driver yielded the arrest of a passenger who had several warrants for his arrest.
Sgt. Vince Hooper pulled over a Honda at 1:30 a.m. at Aristocrat Drive and Malik Avenue. A routine check of passenger Jitender Pal, 29, of Ceres, revealed he had warrants. Pal was arrested without incident and booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center.
