The felony auto-burglary case against a grandson of former President Ronald Reagan moved closer to trial after a brief court appearance Wednesday by the defendant. Cameron Reagan, the 20-year-old son of Michael Reagan, waived a preliminary hearing, which determines whether the evidence is strong enough to sustain the charges. He has pleaded not guilty to burglary, grand theft and petty theft.

This burglar works the turf described by a line so often seen in San Fernando Valley real estate ads: "South of the Boulevard." That's Ventura Boulevard, as in the pricey Encino hills. A burglar who specializes in the upscale hillside area between the San Diego Freeway and White Oak Avenue has hit as many as 39 homes since September, making off with an estimated $500,000 in jewelry and cash, police say.

A Pasadena police officer is facing embarrassing questions after a suspect he was chasing on foot Thursday circled back and stole his police cruiser, leading officers on a high speed chase much of the way on wheel rims--before crashing in downtown Los Angeles. In a scene right out of a Hollywood movie, the man was taken into custody after negotiators spent two hours talking him down from a 50-foot ledge at the Department of Water and Power complex.

The safe burglar is quick, quiet and thoroughly professional. No neighbors spot his car as he pulls behind the Chinese restaurant after closing. No one notices him climb atop the roof, chop a hole and slip to a hallway. No alarms are tripped as he kicks open the office door, breaks into the safe and grabs $2,500. On a recent afternoon, after the restaurant owners discover the break-in, LAPD Det. Jim Becker arrives and studies the crime scene.

Two men were arrested Thursday morning after they allegedly used a power saw to cut through the roof of a cigar shop, filled two gunny sacks with expensive tobacco products and hauled them out of the store. Another burglar got away with the power tools, Los Angeles police said. Karan Takvoryan, 24, and Oganes Atkozyan, 44--both of Van Nuys--are also suspects in two other recent smoke shop burglaries, police said.

A 49-year-old woman was shot to death Wednesday afternoon, apparently during a burglary attempt, police said. Maria Casillas was found in her bed in her ground-floor apartment in the 15000 block of Parthenia Street with a gunshot wound to the upper torso, said Los Angeles Police Det. Marshall White. "This looks like a burglary at this time, but that could all change," White said. Two windows facing Parthenia Street were wide open and their screens were lying on the ground and marked as evidence.
