PRESS RELEASE: Arrest Made for Two Incidents of Arson and Willful Harm / Injury to Children https://local.nixle.com/alert/8792808/ 

Posted on Twitter 2 days ago

PRESS RELEASE: Arrest Made for Two Incidents of Arson and Willful Harm / Injury to Children On Wednesday, June 2, 2021 at 8:15 a.m., Turlock Police Officers were dispatched to the 500 block of Sunnyside Drive for an arson. Prior to police officers' and fire department personnel's arrival, a neighbor noticed the fire and ran across the street to awaken the three adults and three young children who were all sleeping inside. The neighbor alerted the residents and they all safely exited without injury. Upon arrival, officers were informed by the Turlock Fire Department that an incendiary device had been thrown, causing a fire to the residence. Turlock Police Detective Gina Giovacchini was assigned to the case and responded to the scene. Through the course of the investigation, she learned that there was a previous fire that occurred at the residence on May 24, 2021, that the residents extinguished themselves and did not report to the police at that time. It was determined that fire was also caused by an incendiary device. On June 21, 2021, Detective Giovacchini was able to identify the suspect responsible for both arsons, J.D. Dwaine Lucas, a 37 year old male from Turlock. On June 21, 2021, Detective Giovacchini determined a location where Lucas would possibly be. He was located and taken into custody without incident. Lucas was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail and charged with eight felonies including two counts of arson on an inhabited dwelling and six counts of willful harm or injury to a child; which is the result of the three children inside the residence both times the fires were intentionally set. Anyone with any information regarding this case is encouraged to contact Detective Gina Giovacchini by calling (209) 668-6539. ### The Turlock Police Department is an active participant in the Crime Stoppers Program. Callers can leave an anonymous tip by calling Crime Stoppers at (209) 521-4636 and may be eligible for a cash reward.

Everyone Can Help Prevent Hot Car Deaths Parents and Caregivers: 1. Never leave a child in a vehicle unattended even if the windows are partially open or the engine is running, and the air conditioning is on. 2. Make it a habit to check your entire vehicle front and back before locking the door and walking away. Train yourself to Park, Look, Lock, or always ask yourself, "Where's Baby?" 3. Ask your childcare provider to call if your child doesn't show up for care as expected. 4. Place a personal item like a purse or briefcase in the back seat, as another reminder to look before you lock. Write a note or place a stuffed animal in the passenger's seat to remind you that a child is in the back seat. 5. Store car keys out of a child's reach and teach children that a vehicle is not a play area.
