Crescenta Valley Sheriff detectives arrested a man after he allegedly attempted to pay for a Domino?s Pizza with a counterfeit $50 bill. According to Det. Frank Diana, at 3:50 p.m. on Saturday Theopolis Pollard, 36, of Pacoima entered the Domino?s Pizza restaurant at 2712 Foothill Blvd. with a pre-school aged child and ordered a pizza. He handed the Domino?s employee a $50 bill, which she recognized as being a forgery. She told him that she could not accept the money because it was counterfeit and he began yelling at her that it was real.

Even a Safe Community Cannot Afford to be Complacent A collectible car is whisked away in the dead of night; a newspaper deliveryman's van is taken from under his nose; a bank robbery suspect makes a clean getaway in broad daylight. All three events happen within about 24 hours of each other in our little corner of the county. But far worse than any of those events, to my mind, is the potentially terrifying experience of one of our city's children, a 13-year-old. She's walking along busy Foothill Boulevard, presumably minding her own business, when she's accosted by some creep in a car. The good news is, she's a bright girl who keeps her wits about her and uses her cell phone to call her parents for help.

A little less than a month after a 30-day rash of armed robberies of La Cañada Flintridge businesses, employees working at a pizza place were robbed at gunpoint. Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station Sgt. Victor Ibarra said a black man entered the Domino's Pizza at 456 Foothill Blvd. at about 9:30 Thursday night, Dec. 10. He allegedly brandished a gun and ordered the employee working in the front to open a cash register. Finding no money in that register, he ordered the two working employees to the back, where they gave him about $150 from another register.

The Girl Scout Mount Wilson Vista Council will host a Girl Scout Pizza Night on March 29 from 5 to 9 p.m. at Round Table Pizza in La Cañada.

The familiar face of Foothill Boulevard?s Georgee?s Pizza will take on a whole new look in the coming months. The city has approved plans for demolition of the pizza restaurant and construction of a completely new structure. The new facility will replace the current 1,300-square-foot building with a 5,500-square-foot structure that accommodates a 2,000-square-foot pizza restaurant, an additional retail space, and underground parking. ?It?s going to be a beautiful building,? said George Jacobs, restaurant and property owner, of the project he calls, ?

D eep dish, thin crust, Napolese — you might think you have sampled all the pizza the world has to offer. But La Cañada's newest eatery, Hello Pizza, delivers a pleasant surprise with every slice. The pizzeria, at the northeast corner of Ocean View and Foothill boulevards, is the brainchild of South Korea native Brandon Tak. Opened last month, it boasts fresh, healthy ingredients not often associated with the standard American pie. Customers can choose between original and whole wheat crusts, the latter of which lends a dynamic flavor to the pizza, Tak said.

Pizza in a flash made a splash in La Cañada Flintridge on Tuesday at the grand opening of Blaze Pizza in La Cañada Town Center. Blaze Pizza utilizes an oven that burns as hot as 800 degrees and an assembly line of 39 ingredients - three sauces, eight cheeses, eight meats and 20 veggies - to prepare made-to-order 11-inch pizzas in about two minutes. “It's whatever your taste buds are asking for, and by the time you pay your pizza is waiting for you,” said Sheela Patel, a La Crescenta native and one of four partners operating the Town Center franchise.
