Paso Robles arrest two felons for outstanding warrants

December 24, 2022


Following routine compliance checks on Thursday, Paso Robles officers arrested a man and a woman who had outstanding warrants, according to the city’s police department.

Officers conducted compliance checks on 51-year-old Bill Benjamin Hernandez and 43-year-old Stephanie Joy Dukes, both residents of Paso Robles. Police arrested Hernandez on a warrant for felony traffic evasion. Dukes was arrested on 14 outstanding warrants.

Authorities booked both Hernandez and Dukes in San Luis Obispo County Jail. Neither Hernandez, nor Dukes is currently listed as being in custody, according to the county sheriff’s office website.

Paso Robles officers conduct compliance checks on individuals who are on active probation, parole or are deemed a threat to the community, police say.

Catch and release for 14 outstanding warrents is ludicrous.

A quick check Saturday morning online showed that the female (with 14 warrants) was not in custody.

Why bother arresting and putting them in jail if you’re going to release them anyway??????????
