A Ceres police officer who on Monday evening was attempting to run three swimmers out of the TID canal resulted in one fleeing into the Mitchell Road business district because he had warrants for his arrest.

Police ultimately captured Zackeri Moore, 28, of Rapid City, S.D., and booked him for an outstanding arrest warrant.

The incident began at 7:27 p.m. when Officer Eric Souza spotted three men swimming in the canal just east of the abandoned Walmart building. One of the men who were trespassing, provided a false name. When Officer Souza confronted Moore about this, he jumped over the block wall and into the parking lot of the closed store.

Witnesses told police that the suspect had crossed Mitchell Road and went behind Food-4-Less. There he jumped a retaining wall into the condominium complex on Parkway. Officers found Moore and apprehended him as he was coming out on Moffett Road, just north of Mae Hensley Jr. High School.

Moore was arrested for the warrant, giving false information to a peace officer and obstructing a peace officer. Moore was booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center.
