Officer Robert Winget succumbed to injuries sustained in an ATV accident while patrolling a remote area near the Stanislaus River at 11:40 am.

A search party was formed after dispatchers received an indecipherable radio transmission from him and then were unable to make further contact with him. He was located approximately 90 minutes later.

He was transported to Doctors Medical Center, in Modesto, where he succumbed to his injuries a short time later.

Officer Winget was a US Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Ripon Police Department for 3 years. He previously served with the Los Angeles Police Department for 20 years and the Stanislaus County Sheriff's Department for 14 years. He is survived by his wife, son, and three daughters.
