Authorities arrested peace activists, including actor Martin Sheen, during a protest Saturday to return the study of outer space solely to scientific research instead of military purposes. Air Force police and Santa Barbara County sheriff's deputies arrested 23 people on suspicion of misdemeanor trespassing and failure to disperse, said Sheriff's Lt. Mike Burridge. They were cited, warned in writing not to return to the base for at least a year and then released, he said.

Serena Sutherland was hanging laundry in the back yard of her modest home half a mile from the ocean when Santa Barbara County sheriff's deputies pounded on her door, waving a search warrant. A clerk at a nearby liquor store had identified Sutherland, a frequent customer, as the woman who robbed him at gunpoint on New Year's Eve in 1993. In her den, deputies found a gun--a legally registered pistol--similar to the holdup weapon.

More than 100 law enforcement officers patrolled the streets of Isla Vista on Saturday, arresting about 200 people and citing another 200 for mostly alcohol offenses at the annual Halloween party in the small community near UC Santa Barbara. The revelry attracted a smaller than usual crowd of students, and no serious incidents were reported, a spokesman for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department said. "It was toned down considerably," he said.

A 19-year-old man kidnaped two weeks ago was rescued early Saturday by FBI agents, and two suspects were arrested in an alleged plot to obtain $800,000 in ransom from the victim's family, authorities said. The youth--whose name was being withheld to protect a continuing investigation--was found bound but unharmed in a luxurious hillside home in Hope Ranch, his own neighborhood, law enforcement sources said. The victim was abducted Sept.

Santa Barbara County sheriff's officials said Monday they have arrested three people in an alleged plot to kill a Santa Barbara municipal judge and two local law enforcement officers. Officials said a man serving a sentence for a drunk driving conviction offered $150,000 for the murders of Judge Harry Loberg, Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Deputy Todd Graham and California Highway Patrol Officer Shawn Snyder. All three apparently played a role in the man's arrest and conviction.

Crime is choking the criminal justice system in Los Angeles. Numbed by rising violence and overwhelmed by drug offenses, the system routinely gives short shrift to all but the most serious crimes. Police often take hours to respond to burglaries and other property crimes, if they respond at all, and most of the cases are never investigated. Prosecutors trade guilty pleas for lesser sentences for nearly every crime, including homicide, rape and robbery.
