Pitchess jail officials said Friday they have embraced a simple yet effective alternative that will cut the multimillion-dollar costs of removing illegally buried PCP: Leave the drugs underground and instead reroute rainfall runoff. Roger Anderson, the jail's civilian administrator who directed an investigation of the problem, said he will propose the plan to state regulators and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors in about six months, after more testing.

The California Supreme Court on Monday affirmed the death sentence of a man who murdered a West Covina police officer in 1983, and reversed the child molestation convictions of a Kern County couple. In the death penalty case, the court unanimously rejected Michael Anthony Jackson's contention that he was not responsible for the August, 1983, murder of Kenneth Wrede, a West Covina police officer, because he was under the influence of PCP.

After a three-year investigation, authorities announced Wednesday that 16 purported members of the Bounty Hunters street gang were indicted on charges of manufacturing and distributing about $30 million worth of PCP throughout Los Angeles County. The grand jury indictments against the defendants, all but one of them now in custody, could put an immediate crimp in the countywide manufacture and sales of the powerful drug, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Maria Ramirez.

Mark Edwin Taylor is clearly not the same person he was before he served almost 6 1/2 years of a 15-year-to-life sentence for a murder he never committed. Tattoos, like the one of the old Huntington Beach pier that spans his back, compete for space on his muscular frame. Jailhouse jargon permeates his speech. Weightlifting is "driving iron," his friends are "dogs" and the unofficial punishment dished out by correctional officers is "flashlight therapy." Prison, Taylor said, "made me harder.

A 34-year-old man allegedly under the influence of PCP battled several officers in "hand-to-hand combat" before he was shot with a Taser and arrested, Fontana police said Tuesday afternoon. The incident began Monday morning when Mario Granados allegedly tried to stab a man with a sharp object near Etiwanda Avenue and Santa Ana Street and then left the scene, according to the Fontana Police Department. An officer spotted Granados nearby and confronted the suspect, who "began to advance towards the officer," Sgt. Doug Imhof said in a statement.  The officer struck Granados in the legs with a baton but the blows "had no affect on him," according to police.
