Woman with warrant arrested after lying to officer about her name early Thursday morning
On Thursday, April 13th, 2023, at 2:58 am, a Turlock Police officer near the intersection of Homer Way and N Tully Rd, Turlock, observed a driver violate the California Vehicle Code, so he made a traffic stop on him.
The officer made contact with and asked the vehicle’s two occupants to identify themselves. The driver complied, however, his passenger, gave a fake name.
The officer eventually found Aliya Chauvin, 21, of Waterford’s true name, and had his dispatcher run her. He discovered that she had a $25,500 misdemeanor bench warrant out of Waterford for possession of a stun gun by a convicted felon or person convicted of an assault crime.
Chauvin was arrested and booked into the Stanislaus County Public Safety Center on the charge of falsely identifying to a peace officer, as well as her warrant.
The driver was released and his vehicle was impounded.
Thank goodness this officer did an extra check on this person. Great work to all involved.
