He was a personable young man from an upper-middle-class family in Brea. He attended Brea High School, got married and served a stint in the Army. But somewhere along the way, Gregory Alan Rosenberger began to drift in life, family members said Wednesday.

An Irvine attorney was arrested Sunday night after allegedly tipping off police about narcotics in his own office. Gregory G. Brown apparently was working late at his office at 38 Corporate Park. After hearing unusual noises, the 37-year-old attorney called police, telling them he suspected that a burglar had found a way into the building. As police officers arrived, Brown, who police said seemed to be confused, was waiting outside the office building.
