A suspect was taken into custody by Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department personnel early afternoon Thursday, Aug. 4 near the intersection of Claribel and Crow roads in unincorporated Oakdale.

The man, identified by authorities as 28-year-old Modesto resident Jeremy Goodman, was taken into custody near the intersection of Claribel and Crow roads in unincorporated Oakdale “after an exhaustive search by law enforcement personnel.”

Earlier in the day, around noontime, the department issued a statement asking people to “avoid the area in and around the 5500 block of Ellenwood Drive” in the rural area outside Oakdale, “as deputies and investigators with the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Office are currently searching for a wanted person.”

Those that were already in the area were advised to stay inside and secure their property while the manhunt was underway.

Following the suspect’s apprehension, the department lifted the ‘stay away’ order, with regular traffic through that area allowed to resume.

Authorities said Goodman was being sought on warrants for fraud and identity theft, with warrants from Modesto and Livermore having been issued for his arrest.
