Infamous Kando back to causing problems Thursday evening, just a week after release from jail

On Thursday, October 14th, 2021, at 7:50 pm, the Turlock Police Department was dispatched to a reported suspicious person in the parking lot of Walmart Neighborhood Market, 2480 Geer Rd, Turlock.

Officers arrived in the area and noticed a subject matching the description of the suspicious person, later identified as Donald Kando, 42, of Turlock, in the parking lot of 7 Eleven, 2500 Geer Rd. Officers got out with Kando and conducted a records check on him which revealed that he had previously been trespass admonished from Walmart Neighborhood Market, was on probation, and was a sex offender out of compliance with his registration terms.

Kando was detained and searched as allowed by the terms of his probation.

Because officers did not actually see Kando in the Walmart Neighborhood Market parking lot, they were unable to arrest him for trespassing and no one who saw him wanted to make a citizen’s arrest.

Kando had been in jail all year after being arrested on January 1st for not being in compliance with his registration terms, and since he was just released a little over a week ago and did not have enough time to get in compliance, he was lectured and released.

It is currently unknown what exactly made someone call in to report Kando.

Kando is well known within the Turlock community and has been panhandling for over 15 years. At times, he can be aggressive towards women, the elderly, and children. Kando also used methamphetamines prior to his January 1st arrest, however, he has not yet been seen using them since his release.


  • Put him back in jail and toss the key…………enough is enough


    • Really?! Do you believe jail is the answer for Donald? After all the years of panhandling and being on the street, using drugs etc, there is a world of mental illness going on there (jmho). Whether or not it’s been diagnosed, I guess would be the question and I am assuming that at since point it has been. Yes, he needs to do time for any violations, but then send him to a hospital for some extensive treatment, or maybe that’s where he needs to stay, to keep himself safe and others around him.


      • He’s a sex offender ! There’s no cure for that but a bullet in his fucked up head . Like all sex offenders,they need to die. They’re wired differently and need to be exterminated! Jail, counseling, medication , etc. Is . not The answer!
