Authorities this week released photos of a man and woman suspected of stealing two duffel bags during a private party at Raging Waters for Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies and their families. The bags contained hundreds of dollars worth of personal items, including two sheriff's deputy badges and sets of identification. Dozens of families were at the San Dimas water park on Sept. 22 when the bags disappeared, KTLA reported. “When badges are stolen it's very concerning to us because people can use these things and they can pose as deputy sheriffs,” said Sheriff's Deputy Johnie Jones.

Baltimore auteur Matt Porterfield, a distinctive talent among American indie filmmakers, shifts gears in his third feature, "I Used to Be Darker. " Forgoing the documentary elements but not the aesthetic rigor that made his previous film, "Putty Hill," an exquisite meld of genres, he adopts a somewhat more conventional fictional approach. The low-key movie revolves around a family in the midst of a sea change: the end of a marriage and the disparate coming-of-age trajectories of two cousins.

A fire at the Santa Monica Airport that started when a small jet crashed into a hangar Sunday night has spread to two hangars nearby and is burning uncontained, authorities told The Times. A two-engine Cessna that took off from Hailey, Idaho, landed at the airport around 6:20 p.m., veered off the right side of the runway and struck a storage hangar, authorities said. The jet and the hangar burst into flames during the crash, officials said, and the hangar partially collapsed on top of the jet. Authorities have not been able to access the wreckage or see the plane's tail number, sources told The Times; that has made it more difficult to access the plane's records or know who was onboard.

Unlike a bottle of beer, or a shot of spirits, a glass of wine is rarely an exact measure except in bars or restaurants. Researchers from Iowa State and Cornell universities found there were several conditions that could cause someone to pour with a heavy hand.
