The suspects then drove away from the area in a black Pontiac, according to witnesses.The third shooting occurred near Catalina and 36th streets at 9:30 p.m., when police said a suspect shot and injured the victim. Witnesses did not see the suspect, but said he might have left the area in a burgundy Cadillac.Lucy Mueller | Daily TrojanLAPD requested the assistance of USC’s Department of Public Safety in response to the incidents, said DPS Capt. David Carlisle.“According to LAPD, this appears to be gang related and this appears to be specifically targeted victims,” Carlisle said. “It appears that [the three shootings] are related.”In response to the incidents, DPS plans to increase its presence in the area of the shootings, Carlisle said.“We are going to redeploy a variety of our DPS resources into that neighborhood … in hopes of discouraging any further violence,” Carlisle said.DPS released a university-wide crime alert early morning Wednesday, June 9, 2010.The victims are not connected to the university, but students in the area should be alert, Carlisle said.“When there’s that kind of violence in a neighborhood, students should be concerned and take reasonable caution,” Carlisle said. “We hope that they take the crime alert to heart.”“Students should continue to follow our normal crime prevention tips: Don’t walk alone late at night, take advantage of Campus Cruiser and other transportation services, be aware of your surroundings, and if you see something suspicious or you perceive something that doesn’t feel right, call DPS,” Carlisle said.Anyone with information about these crimes is asked to call DPS at 213-740-4321 or LAPD Southwest Area at 213-485-6571.

Long have been essentially even since Kimble’s return from a back injury, but Austin Wilson has lagged a bit behind. He struggled to start the spring, Lester said, and didn’t play in the first half of Saturday’s Spring Game because he has statistically been the worst of the four quarterbacks this spring.“A.J. and Mitch have had better numbers throughout camp,” Lester said, “so that was the order by the numbers.”But when Wilson finally did get his chance, he was flawless. He completed all six of his passes for 124 yards and led the offense on back-to-back touchdown drives during the second half. Wilson helped his side rally after blowing a lead and beat the defense 34-27.He was helped by some spectacular offensive plays after the catch by wide receivers Jeremiah Kobena and Ashton Broyld, who both scored their touchdowns on screen passes.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut Wilson looked poised managing the offense after it had sputtered to three straight three-and-outs to start the second half with Long and Kimble under center.“Ashton made a lot of great plays out there, so did all my other guys. They were all just doing what they had to do,” Wilson said. “They made my job easy.”Wilson also had the benefit of the offense setting things up for big plays in the second half. Kimble and Long did much of the dirty work and by the time Wilson came in, the Orange could open its playbook up and Wilson responded.But it’s still just one practice and Lester isn’t ready to make any judgments on his backup quarterback. Lester needs to see incoming freshman quarterback Alin Edouard, and also see who keeps improving into the summer and beyond.Said Lester: “Camp will tell us a lot more.” Comments
A babysitter managed to crack two different safes belonging to her employers and stole a total of €8,000.Marian Rodgers got a job as a residential childminder for a family in Letterkenny after losing her job in the insurance business.Rodgers, 25, owed money on a car loan which she could not pay and began to steal from the safe of her new employer Sarah McDevitt. Detective Garda Alfie McHale told Letterkenny District Court that he investigated claims that amounts between €400 and €2,500 had been taken from the safe at Ms McDevitt’s home in Letterkenny between August 2011 and March, 2012.He told the court that when money went missing from the safe initially, it had ben replaced with a new safe but that too was breached by the thief.Det. Garda McHale said he later saw the accused in the Oldtown area of Letterkenny and arrested her.A search of her car found items that included an envelope with the victim’s name on it and eleven used AIB banking bags and €394.45 in coins.Solicitor Michael Gillespie said the sum had now been repaid in full and she was fully co-operative with Gardai at all times.Rodgers, from Annagry East, moved to Lettekenny five years ago to work in the insurance business and secured a car loan at that time. Within a year she had lost her job and ended up in a “financial mess” and turned to money-lenders in an effort to keep her car.It was then she started child minding and became a residential child minder for Ms McDevitt.It was while in a “desperate state” she took the money as she had no one to confide in with her problems within her own family.She suffered acute anxiety and depression at the time and had a “unrealistic belief she could sort this out.”He added she was ashamed of her actions and wishes to apologise to the McDevitt family. She is now working in a shop and earning just over €200 a week.Judge Paul Kelly said there was a series of incidents over a period of seven to eight months during which a considerable degree of trust had been shown by the injured party.Judge Kelly convicted Rodgers on one count of theft, fined her €500 and took all other charges into consideration.BABYSITTER CRACKED TWO SAFES AND STOLE €8,000 FROM FAMILY was last modified: January 29th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Annagry EastchildminderDetective Garda Alfie McHaleinsurance businessJudge Paul KellyMarian RodgerssafeSarah McDevittstole
