Profile PictureWhat a horrific crime that took place sometime early Thursday morning.  Who killed Robert Rainey, a popular chiropractor who was found dead on the floor of his Palms office in a very upscale part of Los Angeles..
The 54-year-old Rainey who lives in Culver City, was apparently killed between 7 and 8 a.m. at 9225 Venice Blvd. The victim is reportedly brother of Los Angeles Times reporter James Rainey.

This is a total outrage, and someone knows someone who is responsible for this killing.
Please, let's ALL find who is responsible.  Step up. Call local authorities.

Got a programming alert for you guys out there.  I will be back on the Fernando Espuelas Show (Univision Radio Network, AM 1020 here Los Angeles) with California State Assembly candidates Ian Charles Calderon, Rudy Bermudez and Noel Jaimes.
The show begins at 4 p.m., but you can tune in earlier (say around 3 p.m.) to catch this lively back and forth.
I really appreciate amazing journalists like Fernando Espuelas.  He and I are like two peas in a pod, in many ways.  We are both passionate about an open and honest Democracy, and we have no fear when it comes to getting to the truth, especially when it comes to elected officials.
Rudy, Ian, and Noel’s campaign is typical of what it happening in campaigns in California this June primary season.  This is “hardball” politics at its best, or worst, depending how you look at it.
Tune it.  Podcast to follow. I will also be taking my video cam….  Yep. Democracy in America lives on Latino Talk Radio.  Who KNEW!

This is my "crime story" of the night....

Love these two mugshots.  Here is what happened:

Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station detectives conducted an arduous investigation of numerous thefts from locked storage units within the Calabasas Public Storage facility, located at 23811 Ventura Boulevard, Calabasas, which occurred between the months of March and April, 2012. 

During the investigation, detectives received a tip from a citizen indicating Suspect Richard Traber, who is on parole, allegedly committed the thefts. 

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department

With this information, detectives went to Traber’s Woodland Hills residence on Tuesday, May 15, 2012, and conducted a Parole Compliance Check. As a result of the compliance check, several pieces of known stolen property were recovered and identified as belonging to several victims of residential and commercial burglaries. 
Some of the known burglary victims reside in the surrounding communities of Agoura Hills, Calabasas, and Thousand Oaks
 Suspect Richard Traber was arrested Tuesday, May 15, 2012, for Burglary and Violation of Parole. He is facing possible additional charges pending identification of additional victims and further possible prosecution. 

Traber’s girlfriend, Suspect Colette Kurtz of Woodland Hills, was also implicated in the thefts. She was also arrested Tuesday, May 15, 2012, for Receiving Known Stolen Property, but later released on a bond. 

Malibu/Lost Hills Station Sheriff's Detectives recovered two truckloads of suspected stolen property from Traber’s residence. The recovered items include china cabinets and hutches, silverware, paintings, and a large quantity of boxes of personal care items. 

Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in locating the legal owners of the recovered items. A public viewing of this property will be held on: 

Saturday, June 9, 2012, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM, in the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station parking lot, 27050 Agoura Road, Calabasas. 

Detectives are asking that if you were the victim of theft from a storage unit, vehicle, or residential burglary, to please attend the viewing. In order to confirm proper ownership of recovered property, victims are asked to provide proper identifying information such as crime reports, photos, receipts, and/or serial numbers. 

There is too much property for investigators to check through the recovered items based upon telephone requests. It is necessary for possible victims to come and view it for themselves. 

For questions or information, contact Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Station, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, Detective Ginni Alvarez 818-878-5584. Partner to prevent or report crime by contacting your local Sheriff’s station. Or if you wish to remain Anonymous, call “LA Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the website

The segment was broadcast live to millions of listeners throughout the Western United States. LCCN will post additional interviews by Mr. Hews and Mr. Economy in the future.

Los Angeles Local News, Weather, and Traffic
Los Cerritos Community Newspaper’s exclusive groundbreaking coverage into the corruption probe at the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office is now the focal point of a multi part series that began airing Wednesday night on Fox News 11 in Southern California.

LCCN was the first media outlet to break the story about the massive criminal investigation that has now gripped the entire Los Angeles County Hall of Administration. “We thank Fox News for recognizing featuring Los Cerritos Community Newspaper in their coverage,” said Brian Hews, President and Publisher of Hews Media Group.

“LCCN has been working with dozens of media outlets across the country on this massive scandal for the past eight months,” Hews said.

Featured in this report is LCCN Investigative Reporter Randy Economy who tells about how the community newspaper was able to “piece the puzzle together” that has resulted in the arrest of one former property appraiser, and the recent departure of Assessor John Noguez on a “paid leave of absence.”

Look for more segments on Fox News 11 during the next several days and weeks. Reporter Gina Silva is featured in this segment.
