On May 5, a Cherokee Freight Lines trucker carrying a sizeable tank of red wine was making his way down Highway 99 near Modesto, California when a vehicle pulled in front of him with its emergency flashers turned on, and the driver flagged him down to get him to stop.

The driver thought there might be something wrong with his truck, so he came to a halt on the shoulder of the road in an attempt to find out what was going on.

A car containing two people was pulled over by Ripton police officers performing a traffic stop for expired vehicle registration tags on Wednesday. Upon inspection they located items in the car that they believe had been stolen in a string of recent vehicle burglaries that took place in Santa Rosa and Modesto. In addition, the officers allegedly discovered methamphetamine and a fake gun in the car.

The driver of the Buick, 45-year-old Robert Lenton Ruiz, was found to be on probation and wanted for an arrest warrant for misdemeanor vandalism. 39-year-old Elisa Marie Cabonios, the passenger of the vehicle, possessed an arrest warrant for petty theft. The two were placed under arrest at the scene.

Ruiz and Cabonios are each facing allegations for possession of stolen property, possession of burglary tools, possession of a controlled substance and destroying or concealing evidence. Ruiz must also face charges for driving with a suspended license and violation of a court order.
