TURLOCK — A Turlock man was arrested Thursday in the burglary of Julien Elementary School sometime during the night between Tuesday and Wednesday. School officials on Wednesday reported stolen items that included a large public-address system, microphone and speakers.
Later that same day, officers were assisting Child Protective Services with an unrelated issue that led them to a resident in the 1400 block of East Avenue, Lt. Ron Reid said in a news release Thursday. The officers on scene saw a large speaker in an adjacent room, which led to the recovery of the stolen PA system.
No suspect in the burglary was at the scene, but officers returned there Thursday and arrested Michael James Bledsoe, 32. He was booked at the Stanislaus County Jail on possession of stolen property.
