The men denied the charges.Their attorney, Dexter Todd, revealed that his clients are cooperating with the prosecution to strengthen its case into the carjacking ring, and are being charged only as a result of a misunderstanding.The court heard from Police Prosecutor Arvin Moore that the welders, who operate at Soesdyke, EBD, reportedly had the two cars and chassis numbers taken to them to be welded on. However, Police swooped down on the workshop and the cars were seized. The vehicles were later identified by their respective owners.Further investigations were carried out, and the two defendants had the charged brought against them.They were each placed on $200,000 bail, and are expected to return to Court on March 12.Earlier this month, two ex-Policemen were among others charged for carjacking as ranks finally got a breakthrough into the series of car theft.Of the 15 persons taken into Police custody when investigators swooped down on the Lodge Housing Scheme, Georgetown home of the prime suspect in this investigation and conducted a search, Jason Harry, Shawn Archibald and Timothy Waldron have since been charged.During that surprise raid in Lodge Housing Scheme, investigators found a black Mazda Axela motorcar with licence number PTT 2794, and have unearthed 12 certificates of registration for various vehicles.

first_imgNearby, the conservancy already owns the 1,100-acre La Tuna Canyon Park. That’s right next to Burbank’s Wildwood Canyon Park and hundreds of acres of open space. Los Angeles has been piecing together parcels to enlarge Verdugo Mountain Park. In 2005, the city used local and state park bond funds to buy 145 acres that was the missing link need to join other parcels into one 485-acre park. The 80-acre parcel dedicated today will expand the park and provide easier access to fire-road trails. The city was able to buy the property after the landowner was denied a request to subdivide his property for homes. While he could have tried again, Greuel said, her office persuaded the owner to sell the land for open space. Because of high land prices and demand for housing, steep property once considered too expensive to develop is now being proposed for housing. Bill Eick with the Shadow Hills Property Owners Association said residents along the Verdugos know they have to act now to keep the mountains untouched. “It’s probably easier to save these parcels in big chunks, before it gets developed and we have to do it piece by piece,” he said.

The range of hills sandwiched between the Golden State and Foothill freeways has long been home to small ranches and open space, providing residents a semirural lifestyle. Greuel initiated a Verdugo Mountains open space task force last year with residents and officials from Glendale, Burbank, the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy and Congressman Adam Schiff’s office. The group aims to pool money, purchase parcels that could be developed and coordinate trails and public space in the hills. Swaths of land already have been saved from development. The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy is going to take over 610 acres of open space set aside by the Canyon Hills development. That will connect to 490 acres purchased by the private Fondland Preservation Foundation. An 80-acre parcel in the Verdugo Mountains once proposed for a housing subdivision will be dedicated today as a public park. The $2.1 million land purchase curves around an existing housing tract and halts development’s creep into the hills. It’s part of a quiet campaign by conservancy groups and Los Angeles City Councilwoman Wendy Greuel to buy land in the Verdugos that has been eyed for development. “When we saw the soaring home prices and the development in the community, we realized we had to start thinking about saving the Verdugo Mountains,” Greuel said. “We don’t want to look back and say, `If only we had purchased that land and preserved the Verdugo Mountains.”‘ last_img

first_imgJose Mourinho helped Chelsea to another Premier League title last season, but this campaign has not been plain sailing for the Portuguese boss. Chelsea were beaten by Bournemouth on Saturday, their eighth Premier League loss of the season, and the pressure is surely mounting on the 52-year-old. His plan to start without a recognised striker did not work as he introduced Diego Costa at half-time and heavy pressure in the second half came to nothing as his side could not score. Glenn Murray’s header after a late corner subjected them to another loss and Chelsea fans are growing increasingly impatient.Manchester United fans are not pleased with Louis van Gaal and some would like Mourinho if their Dutch boss is shown the exit from Old Trafford. See below… Jose Mourinho 1last_img read more

first_imgWayne Rooney’s injury-time penalty snatched Manchester United a 1-0 victory over Sheffield United in the FA Cup. The third round fixture will not live long in the memory as chances were few and far between. The League One side defended brilliantly, but the Red Devils mustered few chances on target, with Memphis Depay coming closest with two long-range efforts. The Man Utd playmaker was then involved in the all-important goal as he charged down the left wing and the Blades’ Dean Hammond slid in the box, taking down the summer signing. Rooney stepped up in the 93rd minute to coolly convert past George Long. Louis van Gaal fielded a strong United side but they created few clear-cut chances as Nigel Adkins’ men – ninth in League One – defended well in numbers.Former Wigan striker Connor Sammon did brilliantly well to bring a long ball down with a deft touch, firing on target and David De Gea tipped the ball over the bar. The referee pulled play back for handball, but that was the best piece of action mustered in the first half.The goalless scoreline meant United have not scored in the first half at Old Trafford in their last ten home games. The fans’ frustrations were felt in the second half as Depay came inside from the left channel and his long-range shot hit the side-netting, with home fans sarcastically cheering. Chris Basham had the first shot on target at the other end minutes later, while United fans could not believe their luck as they cheered again when Matteo Darmian’s tame effort was heading for goal, but for goalkeeper Long.Depay tried his luck again from a similar distance, his low shot bouncing past the post before he was involved late on for the penalty decision. As it looked like the tie was heading for a Bramall Lane replay, the home side were awarded a spot-kick.The Dutchman’s dangerous run into the box saw him in space and Hammond slid along the soaking Old Trafford turf, catching him with his trailing leg, and he went down rather easily. But the referee did not hesitate to point to the spot. England and Red Devils captain Rooney rose to the occasion to send Long the wrong way and seal their place in Monday’s fourth round draw.In the next stage they may be, but the result papers over the cracks at Old Trafford as Van Gaal’s men put in another lacklustre performance. But that should not be taken away from Adkins’ men, who performed brilliantly on the night. 1 Manchester United 1-0 Sheffield United: Van Gaal’s men snatch late win through Wayne Rooney penalty last_img read more

first_img In 1991, a drought year, its allocation was cut to 10 percent, LaMoreaux said. The extra water from Western Canal would come from that district’s long-standing rights to the Feather River, Western Canal general manager Ted Trimble said. The water would be made available for Palmdale either by rice farmers leaving some of their land unplanted or by pumping water out of their wells to supply the rice fields, Trimble said. Western Canal must complete an environmental impact report on the plan as well as get permission for the well pumping, Trimble said. No agreement is expected to be in place this year, which so far has been slightly wetter than average in both areas. In 2003, Southern California’s Metropolitan Water District signed an agreement with Western Canal for up to 20,000 acre-feet of water that summer. That spring turned out to be wet, however, so the water was never delivered, Trimble said. Metropolitan and Palmdale were part of another agreement in 2005, but that turned out to be the wettest rainy season in Los Angeles in more than 120 years, so Western Canal’s water was again unneeded, Trimble said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The talks come as Palmdale Water District and other Antelope Valley water officials face growing populations and a declining underground water table that feeds local wells. Farmers and local water districts are in a legal battle over the rights to pump well water. Other local water districts have been looking at storing underground in wet years the excess California Aqueduct water available then. The Palmdale Water District serves about 25,000 homes and businesses – some 95,000 people – and has been gaining about 500 new homes a year. It covers mostly central and eastern Palmdale, from the Antelope Valley Freeway eastward south of Avenue P. Palmdale Water both pumps water out of wells and gathers it from the California Aqueduct as well as from Little Rock Reservoir. From the aqueduct, the district is theoretically entitled to as much as 21,300 acre-feet a year, but state officials said the average it can expect is about 70 percent of that. PALMDALE – Palmdale Water District officials are talking with a Sacramento Valley water district about entering into a long-term contract that would supply Palmdale with extra water in drought years. Palmdale Water District trustees have approved a “letter of intent” for the purposes of securing long-term supplies from Western Canal Water District, which could send Feather River water south through the State Water Project’s California Aqueduct, officials said. “That would help us increase the reliability of water through the State Water Project,” Palmdale Water District General Manager Dennis LaMoreaux said. Prices and terms are still being negotiated, LaMoreaux said, but Western Canal’s general manager said his district is willing to supply Palmdale an annual average over 10 years of 7,500 acre-feet – enough for 7,500 Palmdale families a year – with as much as 15,000 acre-feet available in any one year. last_img read more
