HIGH SPEED CHASE (02/17/1999)
Two boys, a 17-year-old and 14-year-old, stole a counselor's van and made a break for it from the Boys To Men home in Lancaster, California this afternoon. The boys led police on a high speed chase reaching speeds of 95 miles per hour at times through two counties, ending up in Anaheim. The boys eventually pulled into the parking lot of a Holiday Inn near Disneyland and ran inside, hiding out in the hotel. A floor by floor search with canine units eventually turned up the two hiding in a stairwell. When asked why they stole the van, one boy said that the home wouldn't allow him to see his grandmother, who had just died, so he took the car and left anyway.

A reckless race across a California highway last night ended in a mangled heap. But the arrest that followed may open up a new lead in an unsolved police murder case. Investigators are now looking into the possibility suspect Robert Brog may have been the same suspect who shot and wounded a security guard in January of 1993 and then two months later shot and killed a California police officer during a traffic stop.

BONNIE AND CLUTZY CLYDE’S CAPER 2009
Anaheim Police released today surveillance images of a man and a woman who robbed a market at gunpoint in hopes that the public can help identify them. The robbery occurred at 3 p.m. Jan. 17 at M & M Grocery store in the 500 block of South Citron Street, near Santa Ana Street, said Anaheim Police Sgt. Rick Martinez. A man and a woman entered the store posing as customers, according to police. Surveillance images show the couple shopping in the store and then placing their items on the counter, including an 18-pack of Bud Light, Martinez said. Other customers in the store left and that's when the woman handed the man a gun. He dropped it, but picked it up quickly and then pointed it at the clerk, Martinez said. The armed man told the clerk to open up the cash register and demanded all the money. The clerk complied and the woman walked behind the counter to grab the cash, Martinez said. During the robbery, two uninvolved male customers entered the store and the robber waved his gun at them and told them to get out. The men raised their hands and quickly left, Martinez said. The man is described as in his 30s, about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 185 pounds. He has short black hair and a tattoo on his left arm. The woman is described as being in her 30s, about 5 feet, 4 inches tall, with a thin build and long black hair. They were believed to be driving a white sedan, possibly a Toyota Camry. "We want to get these people identified and want to take them off the streets as soon as possible," Martinez said. Anyone with information is asked to call Anaheim Police Detective R. Celello at 714-765-1955.

Musicians in Plane Crash (2007)
A man who came across a fiery jet crash said he saw former Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and disc jockey Adam "DJ AM" Goldstein trying to extinguish the flames on their bodies by ripping off their clothing. "We turned to the jet to try and see if there was anything we could do, but immediately, there was nothing anyone could do," William Owens told CNN affiliate WIS in Columbia, South Carolina. "I felt ill or sick to think that these lives were snuffed out at that point." The two men were in critical condition with extensive burns Saturday. The crash killed four other people on board, authorities said. The Learjet 60 carrying six people, including Barker and Goldstein, was taking off from the Columbia Metropolitan Airport in South Carolina on Friday night when it went off the runway. The plane crashed through light towers and an antenna array before crossing a road and stopping at an embankment, authorities said. Owens came across the plane wreck while driving and stopped to see whether he could help. Lexington County Coroner Harry O. Harman said all the dead in Friday's crash were Californians. He identified them as pilot Sarah Lemmon, 31, of Anaheim Hills; co-pilot James Bland, 52, of Carlsbad; Chris Baker, 29, of Studio City; and Charles Still, 25, of Los Angeles. The Associated Press reported that Baker was an assistant to Barker and Still was a security guard for the musician. Owens told WIS-TV he was driving on Highway 302 when he saw a fireball. Owens stopped and crossed across the road, which was doused with fuel, to get close to the wreckage. Barker was standing in the road, trying to extinguish his burning pants, Owens told WIS-TV. Owens and Goldstein walked toward the plane, but there was nothing they could do to help, he said. Federal investigators recovered the cockpit voice recorder from the crash site but said they aren't sure whether information on the device survived the blaze. Investigators are also obtaining recordings of conversations between controllers in the tower and the jet's two-person crew, said National Transportation Safety Board spokeswoman Debbie Hersman. "Air traffic controllers did observe sparks from the aircraft as it was going down the runway and immediately alerted fire-rescue crews at the airport," Hersman said Saturday evening in West Columbia. The National Transportation Safety Board has sent team to West Columbia to investigate the crash. The Learjet 60 crashed on takeoff at 11:53 p.m. Friday. Beth Frits, spokeswoman at the Joseph Still Burn Center, in Augusta, Georgia, said Barker and Goldstein arrived at the hospital early Saturday. She said both men had "extensive burns." Video Watch charred wreckage of the plane » Barker and Goldstein had played at a huge free outdoor concert in Columbia's Five Points district on Friday night, CNN affiliate WIS-TV said. Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said the twin-engine private jet was cleared for takeoff on a flight to Van Nuys, California, and began its takeoff roll a few minutes before midnight. Air traffic controllers "saw sparks coming from the runway -- whether that was from the aircraft or its engines, we don't know," Bergen said Saturday. "They overran the end of runway 11. They impacted the antenna array and a number of lights at the end of the runway. They went through the perimeter fence and across the roadway here," Hersman said Saturday. "There was a significant post-crash fire." The crash closed the airport, which is Columbia's main commercial and passenger terminal, and it remained closed late Saturday afternoon. The airport's Web site listed nine commercial airline flights canceled through 7 p.m. Saturday. Hersman said the airport would not reopen until investigators finished collecting debris from the runway and crash site. advertisement She said investigators would look at every aspect of the crash, from the pilots' schedules to the aircraft's condition. She said it was a fairly new airplane, manufactured in 2006 and certified to operate in 2007. In addition to playing with Blink-182, Barker appeared in the MTV reality show "Meet the Barkers" along with his wife at the time, former Miss USA Shanna Moakler, according to MTV's Web site. COLUMBIA -- It was an escape that mystified those who stood before the fireball. Travis Barker, a rock drummer, and celebrity DJ Adam Goldstein climbed onto the right wing of a flaming Learjet that was to have delivered them and four others Friday to Los Angeles. "Once they slid down the wing, they had to jump on each other to put each other out," Lt. Josh Shumpert of the South Congaree Police Department recalled the men telling him after the commuter jet crashed about midnight. Shoeless, in shock and in pain, Barker and Goldstein kept asking for an ambulance and worrying about their friends still inside, said Shumpert, one of the first responders on the scene. "They were pacing back and forth," he said. The men did not appear to be burned as badly as he expected. The crash killed four people, including Barker's two assistants and the plane's crew. Shumpert said Goldstein, dressed in a T-shirt and shorts or boxers, was hurt the worst. The lieutenant and Columbia resident Bill Owens were among the first to arrive. A dashboard camera from Shumpert's cruiser captured the turmoil, and the officer gave his first extended interview Tuesday. "I remember seeing the DJ guy with burns on his arms and the back and top of his head." Shumpert said he did not see burns on Barker, though he acknowledged it was dark. "I think he had on one sock. Either that, or they were both real nasty. He did not have a shirt on." Doctors at an Augusta burn center said Barker, 32, and Goldstein, 35, have second- and third-degree burns. They are likely to recover fully, doctors have said. "Travis was more visibly shaken than the other guy," said the 25-year-old lieutenant. Neither Barker nor Goldstein said much. Shumpert tried to comfort them, not knowing until an hour later that they were celebrities. Barker was a member of the multiplatinum-selling rock band Blink-182. Goldstein, known as DJ AM, once was engaged to celebrity Nicole Ritchie. Four days later, Owens said he feels guilty. "I'm concerned that I didn't react quickly. I reacted cautiously."
