Glendale police will receive only $5,446 of the $43,000 requested from the state for costs to prepare for events that never occurred after the Rodney G. King federal civil rights case, officials said Friday. "In these budgetary shortfall times, we're glad we got some disbursement (of funds) from the state," said police Sgt. Lief Nicolaisen. "Although the city has to ultimately foot the bill, it's money that was well-spent if it kept the community safe."

Police spent the morning combing parks, video arcades, convenience stores and fast-food joints, snaring 36 wayward teen-agers Wednesday during a citywide search for truant students. The truants, some of them handcuffed, were taken to the main office of the Glendale Unified School District, where they were frisked and made to wait for a parent or guardian to come get them.

It was certainly an unusual sight--a man in civilian clothes tooling about town in a military transport vehicle with its lights out at 1 in the morning. * And the driver wore this bright orange- and green-striped cap. "Maybe that was the first clue," police spokesman Rodney Brooks said. Then, when a police officer who stopped him asked where he got the Humvee, an unarmed, Jeep-style vehicle used in the Persian Gulf War, the driver said President Clinton gave it to him. That was the second clue.

After coping with cramped offices, pipes that spew sewage into the locker room, and a faltering air-conditioning system, Glendale police hope to soon replace their aging 35-year-old station with a new, state-of-the-art headquarters that could cost $20 million. The existing structure at the corner of Wilson Avenue and North Isabel Street was built to accommodate a staff only half the size of the department's current work force of 350.

After a raid on a house that netted 262 pounds of cocaine and $630,000 in cash, Glendale police said they have already seized as much drug money in the first four months of this year as was collected in raids all last year. Capt. Thomas M. Rutkoske of the department's investigative services division said that Glendale officers confiscated the cash in the raid Friday in Tarzana, bringing the department's total this year to $2 million. Rutkoske said about 75% of the money is expected to be returned to the department as its share under anti-drug laws.
