…found in house he was hiding inA unemployed 23-year-old Soesdyke, Linden Highway resident was on Wednesday night arrested following the discovery of an unlicensed firearm in an East Ruimveldt, Georgetown house where the man was reportedly hiding.According to a Police release, the weapon’s discovery was made at around 20:15h by ranks on a mobile patrol commanded by an Assistant Superintendent.The press statement said acting on information, the ranks conducted a search in a house located at Self Help Square, East Ruimveldt, and the unlicensed Taurus pistol with four live rounds were found.The suspect was also found hiding and taken into custody. Investigations are continuing.
Botched robberyThirty-one-year-old Calvin Dover of Lot PP 6 Bent Street, Worthmanville, Georgetown, who was shot and killed during a standoff with Police on Friday, is a known character to the Guyana Police Force (GPF). This is according to Acting Police Commissioner, Paul Williams during an interview with the media.The acting Top Cop, who is the substantiate GPF Crime Chief, explained that based on Criminal Investigation Department (CID) records, Dover’s name has been at the central point of discussions from time to time. He was reportedly implicated in several armed robberies. When asked about the other bandit, Trevor Barrow, who was shot and killed by the businessman as he and Dover attempted to rob him, the Crime Chief noted that he did not have information with respect to his character. He said the Police will run their database to ascertain whether or not Barrow, called “Budda” was implicated in any criminal activity.Barrow, 26, of Lot 1010 Norton and Cemetery Road, Georgetown, and Calvin Dover had attempted to rob Roy Myers, a businessman, who owns the Les Variety Store on D’Urban and Hardina Streets, Georgetown on Friday morning.The Police related at about 10:30h, Barrow and Dover were armed with a .38 Rossie revolver and a Black Glock 17 pistol respectively when they entered the Les Variety Store.At the time, the owner was reportedly packing goods to send to his other business at Port Kaituma, North West District (NWD). The two-armed men, according to initial investigations, demanded that the businessman hand over his cash and jewellery.He was reportedly wearing a 60 penny-weight gold chain, two gold and diamond finger rings and a gold and diamond hand band. His licensed firearm was also strapped to his right ankle. The alleged bandits however, attempted to relieve him of the items but upon hearing a loud explosion, Dover ran out but Barrow continued in his quest to rob Myers.A scuffle ensured between the two men during which Barrow allegedly whipped out a gun from his pants waist, pointed it at Myers and pulled the trigger. However, the safety on the gun was on and it did not fire. In retaliation, the businessman reached for his firearm and discharged several rounds fatally hitting Barrow.The Police stated that during the ordeal, a woman, who saw the two-armed men entering the store, immediately stopped a Police patrol in the area and related to the ranks about what she saw.On arrival at the store, the ranks saw Dover exiting and upon seeing the Police, he discharged several rounds in their direction. Dover continued to run, and the Police gave chase, but the bandit managed to evade the lawmen.The ranks then noticed a blood trail and followed it. This, according to the Police, led them to a Bent Street, Georgetown house. It was reported that while there, the ranks were greeted with rapid gunfire and without hesitation, they returned fire fatally wounding Dover.Meanwhile, further investigations revealed that at about 01:30h on Friday morning, Odingo Wills, a security officer attached to KGM Security Services was robbed of one 9mm pistol along with 14 matching rounds.Police have since confirmed that the firearm was found in Dover’s possession after the shootout.
Croatian prosecutors charged Modric in March with committing perjury during evidence he gave in the multi-million-euro corruption trial of former Dinamo Zagreb boss Zdravko Mamic.Modric, 33, testified in June last year over the details of his 2008 transfer from Dinamo to Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur.He went on to join Real Madrid in 2012.The offence carries a maximum penalty of up to five years in jail.But, the Zagreb municipal court decided not to confirm the indictment — a step required by Croatian law for a trial to open — according to an online report in the Vecernji List daily quoting the tribunal.The report could not be immediately confirmed with the court.Vecernji List said the court ruled that the indictment was “premature”, meaning it should have not been brought before rulings in the trial against Mamic become final.Mamic and three other defendants were found guilty of charges of abuse of power and corruption that cost Dinamo, the current Croatian champions, more than 15 million euros ($17.3 million), and the state 1.5 million euros.Mamic, who is currently in hiding in neighbouring Bosnia, was sentenced in June to six and a half years in jail.Prosecutors allege cash was embezzled through fictitious deals related to player transfers. Liverppool defender Dejan Lovren, who also testified at the Mamic trial about his 2010 transfer from Dinamo to French side Lyon, also faces perjury charges.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Luka Modric was crowned FIFA’s best player of the year © AFP/File / GABRIEL BOUYSZagreb, Croatia, Oct 2 – A Zagreb court has rejected charges that Croatia captain and Real Madrid star Luka Modric gave false testimony in a corruption trial, a Croatian newspaper reported on Tuesday.The decision, which can be appealed, came just a week after Modric was crowned FIFA’s best player of the year, after starring for both his club and Croatia.

But now, everything’s a blessing, you know? People just love it so much. I embrace it.” Britney sees kids more under ruling Britney Spears is gonna get to see her kids more, but it will be under watchful eyes. Los Angeles Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon on Tuesday granted Britney three visits per week with her two young sons, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, from noon to 7 p.m. and one overnight visit. To look at her, it doesn’t seem possible that Cheryl Ladd made her debut on “Charlie’s Angels” THIRTY years ago. She still looks spectacular, not much different from when she was picked out of relative obscurity to replace Farrah Fawcett on the iconic female detective series. I got to catch up with Cheryl this week and things started off on a funny note when I told her how little she has changed since her days as an angel. Cheryl, 56, laughed and said: “Your eyes must be going, Honey.” They are not. She also must continue with random drug and alcohol tests twice a week, child-proof her homes and promise to properly use car seats. Britney was recently observed by a court-ordered “parenting coach” whose report was quite damning, although it also states that it is clear she “loves her children and the children are bonded to (Spears).” Gordon, in an eight-page opinion, writes that during initial visits “the environment at the house ranged from chaotic to almost somber with little communication at all” and that Britney “rarely engaged with the children in either conversation or play.” Despite an improvement from the last visit, it is the coach’s opinion “the problem is that unless Ms. Spears realizes the consequences of her behavior and the impact that it has (on) her children, nothing is going to be successful.” Let’s hope, that for the sake of her kids, Britney wakes up soon and smells the Starbucks! Retired 007’s moves slipping? Pierce Brosnan, the former Agent 007, is being investigated on suspicion of striking a photographer who was trying to snap pictures of the actor and one of his children over the weekend in Malibu. TMZ.com reported Tuesday that the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department is investigating details of what occurred outside Casa Escobar on Friday evening in a Malibu mall. A witness said Brosnan said, “Why don’t you **** mate,” then struck photographer Robert Rosen in the ribs. Rosen, according to the witness, then kicked the actor in the stomach. Geez, couldn’t Brosnan have just used some kinda fancy gizmo to get rid of the guy? Must suck not to be Bond anymore. Rosie O’Donnell Factors Bill in Monday night, Rosie O’Donnell found herself unexpectedly appearing on “The O’Reilly Factor.” Wondering how THAT happened? It seems that Bill O’Reilly sent a producer to a Long Island book signing where Rosie was autographing copies of her new memoir “Celebrity Detox.” Rosie signs his book; then the ambush interview begins, with the producer asking why Rosie hadn’t returned O’Reilly’s phone calls and saying, “Rosie, he wants to know if you regret saying that 9-11 was an inside job?” Rosie: “I did not say that. He is quoting the wrong people.” After more back-and-forth, Rosie finally loses her patience: “Sir, you’re done. Get out of the store. You made your point. You have your tape. Go home.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champBy Friday, that number had jumped to 70, El Monte police Detective Brian Glick said. The reported monetary losses had also jumped from $10,000 to $30,000 – and Glick said that number could reach $100,000 once all of the cases are investigated. “The victims are still coming in,” said Victor Hernandez, a police investigator. “I am getting just swamped with calls of people hearing about this.” Many of the victims – one is an employee at the gas station – are patrons of Washington Mutual, Bank of America, Citibank, Vons Credit Union and the El Monte City Credit Union, Hernandez said. No illegal devices have been found at the gas station, but authorities say the fact that all the victims have used their cards there is more than a “coincidence.” EL MONTE – The number of victims in a debit-card scam linked to an ARCO gas station has nearly doubled in three days with losses estimated at tens of thousands of dollars. El Monte police detectives believe the common denominator of more than 60 identity-theft victims is that all used debit cards to buy gasoline at a gas station at 4378 N. Santa Anita Ave. Authorities said they noticed the trend after receiving information from local banks and credit unions whose customers had been victimized. On Tuesday – when detectives shut down the station to search pump terminals for illegal devices – they had identified as many as 45 potential victims. Police do not believe the gas station’s owner is involved. In this case, investigators believe an advanced computer device was used to capture information from cards’ electronic strips and personal identification numbers (PIN). The thieves then used the information to make cash withdrawals – between $400 and $1,500 – from locations in Palm Springs and New York, and out of 7-Eleven stores in Las Vegas, Glick said. El Monte resident Douglas Trujillo said $1,100 was stolen from his account between Dec. 7 and Sunday evening. “I do online banking and I looked at my account and I noticed my checking account at zero dollars,” he said. “That set alarms off for me.” Three illegal withdrawals – two in Las Vegas and one in Simi Valley – were made. Trujillo is a frequent customer of the Santa Anita Avenue gas station and called himself an “avid user of check cards.” Hernandez said a group of people are likely behind this debit-card scam because withdrawals are being made simultaneously in locations hundreds, sometimes thousands, of miles away from one another. Police have also spoken with other investigators working similar cases at ARCO gas stations in other cities. “There seems to be more ARCO gas stations than other gas stations targeted,” Glick said. “It’s possible a specific group or groups are working these pumps.” At ARCO stations, customers are only given the option of authorizing a debit transaction, which requires a PIN, rather than a credit transaction, which doesn’t. ARCO officials said the company only accepts debit cards because banks impose higher fees for credit transactions. “ARCO considers the safety and security of every customer a top priority,” said Todd Spitler, a spokesman for the company. “But there are other businesses throughout California, not only us, that only accept debit cards.” The company often updates its technology to thwart criminal activity, and any time their pumps are compromised, ARCO officials work with law enforcement agencies, Spitler said. But identity theft is a global issue, he said. Anyone can be at risk, according to Glick. “You could go to a restaurant, give your card to a waiter or waitress and they could walk away and skim your information,” he said. “You would never know it.” Glick said the best thing patrons can do is check their accounts daily and access their credit reports. “I’m actually going to change my whole process,” Trujillo said. “Now that I’ve seen how easy (thieves) can do this, I’m just going to stick to using cash and secure ATMs.” firstname.lastname@example.org (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2109160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA – The powerful Chaffey College offense places a lot of stock in one general principle: The first team to 100 points wins. It held true on Wednesday. Jamar Smith scored a game-high 28 points and Jerome Habel added 25 – with 24 coming in a second half that had San Bernardino turn a nine-point deficit into a two-point lead. The lead changed hands six times inside the last four minutes of the game, with the Wolverines taking a 94-92 lead – their largest of the game – when Habel completed a three-point play with just over two minutes to play. But Vince Alvarado answered with one of his pair of three-pointers in the game and T.J. Smith pushed Chaffey’s advantage to 100-96 with a long jumper with less than a minute left. It was just enough time for the Panthers to invite the Wolverines back into the game. Jamar Smith drove for a bucket with 25.7 seconds left and T.J. Smith threw the ball away on the ensuing possession, leaving 17.9 seconds left for San Bernardino to work the ball inside to Habel for the tie. At least that’s what Chaffey planned for. Instead, Dewayne Pettus got the ball, drove inside and came up short on a layup. McClure grabbed the rebound and the foul, and then completed a 6-for-6 effort at the foul line with two free throws that iced the win. Chaffey made 30 of its 35 free throws, including 17-of-19 in the second half, in an effort that began with early execution of the game plan: get the Wolverines into early foul trouble and make the freebies count. Habel, with two early fouls, had four points and a lot of minutes on the bench in the first half, and five Wolverines finished with three or more fouls. “We were able to attack them,” Klein said. “We did what we needed to do.” CHAFFEY WOMEN 61, SBVC 39: Alysia Lewis scored a game-high 17 points, Tynisha Utz added 14 and Chaffey snapped a three-game losing streak with a 61-39 victory over San Bernardino Valley, the Panthers’ first victory in the Foothill Conference. The Panthers (4-14, 1-2) opened the first half with an 18-4 run and maintained a double-digit lead for virtually the entire game, with Lewis sinking three 3-pointers and Mary Barbera hitting two in a 10-point game. Zulema Barajas led San Bernardino Valley (1-16, 1-3) with 11 points, Janae Westmoreland scored 10 and Rocky Malloy added eight before fouling out late in the game. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

San Jacinto. So far, Chaffey’s answer to the preseason poll has included surviving a nail-biter against Mt. San Jacinto on Saturday and getting 24 points from Larry Dew and 21 from T.J. Smith on Wednesday in a victory that has Chaffey headed to Antelope Valley College on Saturday with sole possession of first place in the conference. “We have to guard against the letdown now,” Chaffey head coach Jeff Klein said. “Going to play at Antelope Valley won’t be easy.” Just like it wasn’t easy for the Panthers to hold onto the 45-40 lead it built by the half.

Loris Karius is the spotlight once again 1 Loris Karius endured another night to forget on Thursday.The goalkeeper left Liverpool for Besiktas on a two-year loan deal in the summer after he made two shocking howlers in last season’s Champions League final. He’s looking to rebuild his career in Turkey and had made a positive start to his Besiktas career, impressing in his early appearances.However, the 25-year-old made his first big blunder for his new club in Thursday’s Europa League clash with Malmo.Karius completely misjudged a cross, with the ball looping over his head and into the back of the net.It gifted Malmo the lead and the Swedish side went on to seal a 2-0 victory, leaving Besiktas third in Group I.
