The Oakdale Police Department has arrested one of two suspects in Tuesday’s Veteran of Foreign Wars burglary case in Turlock.

Two men attempted to steal an ATM and when that plan failed they took items from inside the VFW.

Ricky Dean Beets Jr. was arrested after a vehicle he was in was stopped for a traffic violation Thursday afternoon.

During their investigation they realized Beets was a wanted suspect in the Turlock Police Department’s investigation.

The second suspect still has not been identified and the Turlock Police Department is still asking for the public’s help identifying him.

If you have any information regarding the suspect’s whereabouts call the Turlock police at (209) 668-1200.
