Riverbank Police Services (RPS) deputies have had a number of calls for service this past week including DUI, collisions, illegal drugs, and theft.

Officials noted that within the next two weeks they will be adding two additional camera systems in the city as well. One of the cameras will be posted up at the Skate Park to provide oversight and the second one will be placed at Pioneer Park. It was reported that the additional systems would provide additional safety and security to residents that enjoy those public places. RPS will also continue to coordinate engagement and outreach with the homeless population in Riverbank.

During the early morning of Saturday, March 13, deputies stopped a vehicle driving erratically on Patterson Road near Silverock Road. Deputies determined the driver, a 26-year-old, was under the influence of alcohol. She was arrested for DUI.

Deputies received a report of a subject acting strangely in the 5200 block of Squire Wells Way during the late hours of the morning on Saturday. Deputies contacted a 32-year-old man, and he was arrested after he was found to have a warrant and illegal drugs.

On Thursday, March 11 in the afternoon, deputies responded to the Crossroad’s Shopping Center on the report of a collision involving a vehicle versus a cyclist. The cyclist received minor injuries; the investigation is ongoing.

During the afternoon on Wednesday, March 10, deputies received a call of a subject that locked themselves in someone else’s car in the 2600 block of Patterson Road. After deputies arrived, they were able to get the 31-year-old man out of the vehicle and he was arrested for trespassing.

Late in the evening on Wednesday, deputies attempted to stop a vehicle near Santa Fe Street and Snedigar Road for vehicle code violations. The driver led deputies on a short slow speed pursuit before he was stopped. The 44-year-old man was subsequently arrested for failing to stop for a peace officer and for driving without a license.
