Los Angeles police said Monday they have developed enough information to bring criminal charges in the abduction of a 4-year-old boy against Enrique Palma Lopez, a day laborer who was hailed last month as a hero for "finding" the boy. Lopez, who was arrested Sunday in San Diego on an unrelated fugitive warrant as he tried to leave the country, is also under investigation for the disappearance and recovery of a 3-year-old boy in the Downtown area, said Lt. Louis Trovato.

As police sought to unravel a day laborer's involvement in the recovery of two children who were reported missing in the last month, investigators were skeptical Tuesday that the cases were mere coincidence. Enrique Palma Lopez, 31, called authorities Monday and said he had found 3-year-old Andrew Rodriguez, who had disappeared Christmas Day from a Downtown video arcade. In early December, Lopez found Matthew Vera, 4, who had vanished 40 hours earlier from the Downtown Greyhound bus station.

With one arm wrapped around her little boy, Patricia Flores was not taking any chances Saturday as she flipped through a row of compact discs at a store in the busy Broadway shopping district downtown. "I'm taking extra care because it's really strange what happened to those two boys," said Flores, 17, holding tightly to 3-year-old Mariano, who was decked out for a day of shopping in his cowboy boots, black jeans and freshly pressed white shirt.
