Three men suspected of burglarizing a La Cañada Flintridge jewelry store are in jail as authorities search for a Glendale businessman suspected of leading an alleged jewelry-store theft ring believed to have taken millions of dollars worth of jewelry in recent months, authorities said. Almost a month after a May 12 burglary at La Cañada's Aviani Jewelers, at 2147 Foothill Blvd., detectives from the Sheriff's and Los Angeles Police departments tracked leads to an undisclosed location in Van Nuys where a surveillance operation resulted in the arrests of six men, Sheriff's Detective Richard Lutz said.

Independence Day — 4th of July. Though the American geographic, political, economic, psychological and sociological landscape has greatly changed since 1776, one thing has remained the same: the great American metaphor of the open road. Back then, dirt roads were grooved with wagon wheels driven by pioneers; now our asphalt byways and highways take us to nearby cities within minutes to our destination. Whatever our pursuits, our American open road still represents freedom, mobility, destiny, conquest, passion, independence and opportunity.

I banged up my car last week as I was backing out of the garage. And while there's no excuse for doing what I did, I would like to say in my defense that the spot it was parked in is small, tight, cramped and difficult to get out of. The banging up isn't actually that serious. I just wasn't careful enough as I was backing out, and ended up accidentally hitting the right mirror against the edge of our garage. It made an ugly ghastly noise that sounded like the devil's orchestra and the mirror has now been horribly disfigured.

Colleagues and friends of the man involved in the alleged murder-suicide in La Cañada identified him Monday as Aaron Welch, an auto mechanic, tow-truck driver and longtime La Crescenta resident.

The shooter in the murder-suicide that occurred in the 4500 block of Lasheart Drive in La Cañada last month once lived in a house with the female victim and her husband, investigators said this week. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Detective Steve Lankford said that Aaron Welch, 47, was previously a tenant of the Herrera family, having rented a room from Genny Herrera, 39, and her husband, Gerardo Herrera. Lankford could not say how long Welch lived with the Herreras, nor where the residence was located.

A man who drove into a traffic median island on Verdugo Boulevard during a December downpour said he will sue the city after council members rejected his claim for damages last week. Attorney Roderick Lipscomb, a longtime La Cañada Flintridge resident, struck the median on the evening of Dec. 20, 10 days after a distracted driver jumped the median’s curb and destroyed a lighted city welcome sign there. City Council members discussed the claim during closed session May 2 after hearing Lipscomb argue two weeks earlier that the previous collision had knocked out lighting for the welcome sign that would have made the median more visible.

A potential traffic tragedy was averted on Monday when a woman whose car would not stop accelerating on Foothill Boulevard was able to stop the vehicle, thanks to the instructions of a Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station dispatcher. The woman, a 40-year-old resident of Sunland, and her daughter, 5, were eastbound on Foothill Boulevard at 10:55 a.m., approaching Sport Chalet Drive, when their car's accelerator became stuck, forcing the vehicle to move at 20-25 miles per hour. The woman called 911 from her cell phone, and said, sobbing, “There are cars in front of me and I can't stop.” The 911 operator patched the woman through to the local Sheriff's day shift dispatcher, Richard Engersbach.

Angeles National Forest is a beautiful area where families and outdoor enthusiasts hike, picnic and camp. One thousand miles of twisting roads, paved and unpaved, wind through the forest. Those roads not only entice nature lovers, but those who love to speed. On a Saturday ride-along with California Highway Patrol Officer Michael Morrin, the reality of this urban forest became apparent to a reporter the minute the early morning shift began. “We already have a report of an accident,” Morrin said as he began working at 7 a.m. The accident was a single vehicle that had overturned on Angeles Crest Highway.
