Lt. Michael Morgan didn't know whether to smirk or cry this month when he first tried on the khaki colors of the California Highway Patrol. For the previous 25 years, Morgan wore the almost identical uniform of the obscure California State Police, so the new togs meant he wouldn't have to constantly correct people anymore. Sadly, though, the stiffly pressed suit also reminded the Newport Beach resident that the CSP's long and unique history was over.

From the cockpit of his souped-up State Police airplane, Tom Roberts scans the California Aqueduct, snaking across the brown carpet of the Mojave Desert like a discarded blue ribbon. The ground is perilously close--only 300 feet below his wings--but Roberts must fly that low to see what he needs to see: two motorcyclists preparing to swim in the cool, treacherous waters of the aqueduct near Hesperia.

A state police officer pulled out a hidden pistol and killed himself as he was being questioned in connection with an alleged child molestation case, officials said. Sacramento County sheriff's detectives had confiscated Donald Herman's service pistol and searched him after he was arrested at the state office building for questioning in a child molestation case involving a 12-year-old girl from Citrus Heights, near Sacramento, whose mother was an acquaintance of Herman.

Jason Harrington, wanted on a battery charge in Alameda County, was caught after a chase across rooftops in the Baja California fishing village of San Felipe. Alleged child molester Father Joseph Briceno of Phoenix was handcuffed amid a crowd of parishioners in Mexicali. Tony "The Big Homie" Rodriguez, a Mexican Mafia boss from Indio, hurled threats after being hauled off a street corner by Mexican police posing as junkyard dealers. All three fugitives had a similar escape plan: Flee to Baja California and leave their troubles at the border.

Mexican police were searching throughout Baja California and elsewhere in the nation Wednesday for suspects in a gangland-style ambush on a Tijuana street during Tuesday's evening rush-hour that left five people dead and six others injured. Five of the injured--including a 22-year-old female student who remains in critical condition--were motorists driving by in their vehicles when they were caught in the barrage of 200 or more bullets aimed at two other cars, police said.
