A fourth suspect was arrested Tuesday at his Pleasanton job in the Tracy torture case that's made national headlines of a 16-year-old boy, who escaped to a local gym begging for help last week.
On Tuesday, Tracy police detectives arrested 29-year-old Anthony Waiters at his workplace in Pleasanton. Waiters is employed at the Bay East Association of Realtors. He works as part of the Bay East technical support group, taking phone calls from Realtors and helping them access and use technical and software materials.
Waiters was booked at San Joaquin County Jail on the following charges: torture, conspiracy, child endangerment, corporal injury to a child and false imprisonment.
Tracy Police Department spokesman Matt Robinson declined to answer questions about the case, citing a gag order that's in place and referred questions to the District Attorney's office.
The teen was wearing a shackle and chain around his ankle when he entered a Tracy gym last week asking for help. The other three suspects include Kelly Layne Lau, 30, and her husband, Michael Schumacher, 34 and Caren Ramirez, 43. They are being held in lieu of $2.2 million bail. No pleas have been made and their next court date is Jan. 5.
