FOUR THIEVES APPREHENDED IN WATERFORD

NEWS RELEASE DATE 11-09-10
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE TIME 10:40 AM
FOUR THIEVES APPREHENDED IN WATERFORD

Waterford, CA – Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department patrol deputies interrupted two in-progress property crimes overnight Tuesday, which resulted in four felony arrests in and around the greater Waterford area.

The first incident took place at the 711-Materials business located at 19412 Yosemite Boulevard. At approximately 12:16 a.m., off-site security guards monitoring surveillance cameras took notice of a man later identified as 38-year-old John Dompleling of Turlock making his way onto the property carrying bolt cutters and a backpack. Deputies were able to get into position, secure the outer perimeter of 711-Materials, and were in constant contact with dispatchers whom were relaying information in real-time provided by the security guards watching events unfold on their television monitors.

Dompleling attempted to flee by running along the river near the Hickman Bridge; however, deputies were one step ahead of him and were soon able to safely take him into custody. During the course of their preliminary investigation, deputies located a cellular telephone Dompleling had been carrying. He was found to have made a phone call only moments prior to being arrested. Deputies observed as a passing vehicle occupied by two women suspiciously drove passed the business. The first woman was 47-year-old Debra Dunuan, and the second was 42-year-old Patricia Vandunk. Both women were from Turlock.

Deputies called the same previously dialed number on Dompleling’s cell phone, which coincidentally made a second cell phone ring in the getaway vehicle driven by Vandunk and Dunuan. Both women were found to be on searchable probation out of Stanislaus County for various drug and theft-related offenses. Dunuan was also in possession of a substance believed to be crystal methamphetamine as well. The women were arrested for criminal conspiracy, attempted burglary, narcotics possession and probation violation charges. Dompeling was charged with attempted burglary, criminal conspiracy, trespassing and possession of burglary tools.

Only eight-minutes after clearing the call at 711-Materials, and returning to his assigned jurisdiction within the city of limits of Waterford, Dep. Jesse Ruelas spotted another apparent commercial burglary in-progress at Dry Creek Realty located at 12905 Yosemite Blvd. The man, later identified as 18-year-old felony probationer Kadree Lowrey of Riverbank, attempted to unsuccessfully run from Dep. Ruelas to avoid apprehension. Lowrey was the fourth unlucky criminal of the night and soon found himself in the back seat of a patrol car. He was booked for grand theft, receiving stolen property, resisting arrest and possession of burglary tools. Booking photographs have been attached for your convenience.

Sheriff Adam Christianson said, "This is another example of the outstanding work our deputy sheriffs do to protect the citizens of Stanislaus County and further reinforces why we should not be laying them off". Booking photographs have been attached for reader convenience.
