MAN WHO CALLS 911 ENDS UP GOING TO JAIL


Modesto, CA – Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 20-year-old Modesto man early Monday morning on several felony warrants after he called 911 on himself in order to report a disturbance with his parents.

Amos Morrow, who was living in the 2100 block of Peggy Lane with his mother and stepfather, called for law enforcement assistance at approximately 1:49 a.m. to complain that his parents were threatening to throw him out of the house.

Dispatchers took the liberty of conducting a records check on Morrow, in order to check for any warrants, prior to sending deputies to the house. It turned out Morrow was wanted on three separate burglary cases beginning in 2008 and continuing into this year. Those burglaries included break-ins to Modesto High School, Burbank Elementary School on Paradise Rd. and to a vehicle in the summer of 2008.

Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department patrol deputies arrived within a matter of minutes and located Morrow standing near the driveway of his home ready to lodge his complaint against his parents. Instead, Morrow was safely taken into custody and provided with a ride to the county jail. He was booked on those three previously mentioned felony warrants, which had a combined bail valued at $151,500.

Morrow’s booking photograph has been attached to this press release for reader convenience. His first Superior Court appearance will be on the morning of Wednes., Nov. 24th.
