A sheriff's plan to open the massive new Twin Towers jail in part with funds provided by leasing other county jail beds to state and federal law enforcement agencies was endorsed Wednesday by Los Angeles County's new chief administrative officer. Saying that the plan to ease jail overcrowding appears reasonable and fiscally sound, Chief Administrative Officer David Janssen sent it along to the Board of Supervisors, which is expected to approve it as early as today.

After years of planning and many months more of embarrassing political hand-wringing, the Los Angeles County supervisors voted Thursday to finally open the state-of-the-art Twin Towers jail amid bursts of self-congratulation and visible relief. The unanimous vote to open the 4,100-bed facility as early as January came after a brief discussion that largely avoided the political problems the towers have caused the supervisors and Sheriff Sherman Block.

More than a dozen teens have been charged in connection with a break-in at a La Habra Heights mansion, where they allegedly threw a party while the owners were away and stole, among other items, a mounted snow leopard. The 9,000-square-foot home sustained more than than $1 million in losses and damages in the November incident, authorities said. Among the looted items were pieces of armor, racks of designer clothing and the rare, $250,000 snow leopard. Detectives with the Los Angeles County's Sheriff's Department eventually found the leopard in one of the teens' possession.
