    Brenda Gazzar bgazzar@scng.com @bgazzar on Twitter A Los Angeles street gang member who starred in a rap music video about “flocking” — a slang term for breaking into a home in order to steal — has been on the run for months after being charged by Ventura County prosecutors with four counts of residential burglary, authorities said. After 27-year-old Darren King was arrested in the Simi Valley burglaries, he posted bail of $50,000 last August but failed to appear in court later that month, according to police. A warrant in the amount of $1 million was issued for his arrest....

Homeowner Adam Pearl said he immediately knew something was awry when he returned home that day. His first clue was the footprints in the snow leading through his front yard and around to the back of the house. When Pearl entered his house, he was instantaneously met by Joey, his pet squirrel.

    It took only seconds before Kibet made the connection: Someone had broken in and rifled through the team’s belongings. In the hallway, he saw the stairwell door closing at the end of the corridor. Kibet did what comes naturally: He ran. With his pack on his back and dress shoes on his feet, he flew down five flights until he reached the bottom floor of the Courtyard Marriott, where he found a man with his teammates’ bags. “I got a knife,” the man told Kibet, and then he ran. Kibet briefly pondered what to do, then gave chase, keeping his...

    RUSH: All right, here's the Sandy Burglar stuff. By the way, this news coming out yesterday and today is a typical dump going into a slow news time. "Former national security advisor Sandy Berger removed classified documents from National Archives in 2003 and hid them under a construction trailer, the Archives inspector general reported yesterday." Now, this has been chalked up here to, "Sandy wasn't thinking," or "Sandy is sloppy," or "Sandy is such a hard worker," or Sandy this or Sandy that. He put it in his socks. He put the papers down his pants or whatever. Now we...

The intruder started walking toward the front door, carrying a hamper full of property. That’s when Gaither opened fire. “I shot through the hamper he was carrying,”...

That decision proved fatal. While hiding near the water, it seems the burglary suspect, identified as Matthew Riggins, ran afoul of an 11-foot alligator. Seeing easy prey, the gator attacked.

    The Obama administration's nominee for a senior legal position at the Pentagon is one of the congressional staffers accused by Republicans and intelligence officials of stealing classified documents from the Central Intelligence Agency, Fox News has learned -- and the controversy could imperil her shot at a major career promotion.

    Suspect Jaime Lewis When you are an elderly woman, you are likely to have more leeway in how you interact with criminals.  It is partly a matter of being more vulnerable; and partly a matter of the statistics reinforcing the stereotype that women are less aggressive than men.  In Georgia, a 73-Year-Old woman shot an intruder through her bedroom door, after he had broken into the house.  The woman heard the doorbell ring a little before 10 pm, but did not answer.  She saw a truck parked in the middle of an intersection, and called 911.   From ajc.com:...

The couple had set up sensors and cameras around their garage, whose door they left open; Kaarma's wife, Janelle Pflager, left her purse there "so they would take it," she said, per court documents.

    RINGGOLD, Ga. — It's now more clear how 17-year-old Dalton McConathy wound up dead Monday afternoon, shot, police say, by 69-year-old Fred Steven Youngblood outside Youngblood's Post Oak Road home.

And in spite of that shooting -- or maybe because of it -- Youngblood answered his front door Wednesday afternoon, gun in hand. "You need to leave right now," he told a Times Free Press reporter.
