ID theft for GUSD records

At 12 a.m. on Nov. 7, it was reported that someone used a fake identification to obtain confidential information about an incident at Brownell Middle School. The investigation is developing and police would release few details.

Spat over stolen drugs 

A man on the 7000 block of Hanna Street displayed a concealed handgun at another man at 11:44 p.m. on Dec. 5, who he claimed owed him money for stolen drugs. The victim claims he does not know the suspect but was “familiar” with the incident, according to Police Sgt. Pedro Espinoza.
