Daily Chaos: Stolen cars recovered; patrol car’s window shot out.

Last week a Manteca man died and the day after someone stole a bunch of his classic vehicles, including a motorcycle valued at $140,000. On Friday, all but one of those vehicles was recovered after a police officer spotted one being driven through downtown Tracy. The Delta Regional Auto Theft Team said that man was arrested, but wouldn’t release his name until the last vehicle had been recovered and other arrests had been made.

Much, much too early on Saturday morning a woman had to go down to the parking lot of apartment complex, in the 1700 block of North Commerce Street, to tell three men down there to be quiet. Police said one of the men pushed the woman, prompting her husband to come to her aid. When he did that, police said, one of the noisy men started hitting the woman’s husband with a baseball bat. A few more residents got involved and eventually two of the three were caught and arrested. The man who tried to protect his wife, however, was in critical condition at a local hospital. The two men who were arrested, Raymond Castillas, 22, and Victor Liniohan, 19, don’t even live in the apartment complex.

The Sheriff’s Office said that on Friday someone took a potshot at a deputy who was sitting in a marked patrol car parked in the 3200 block of South El Dorado Street. The deputy was using a cell phone when a group of cars passed and someone in one of the cars took a shot, shattering the patrol car’s rear window. The deputy wasn’t hurt. Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriff’s Office at (209) 468-4400.

I’ll be back Tuesday.
