Police Sunday were still looking for armed intruders who have been shopping for victims through ads in the Recycler, a weekly advertiser. Two men shot Saturday were the latest victims--but the first in the San Fernando Valley--of robbers who pretend to be interested in buying Macintosh computers from Recycler classified ads, but instead steal them by force. The thieves have struck in the Westside eight times since December.

Recycler Classifieds has grown beyond its founders' expectations by giving away mostadvertising and asking readers to pay for the newspaper. Though the paper wants to maintain itsimage as a struggling alternative publication, success is hard to ignore when devoted buyersline up each week. They gather early every Thursday morning at an unassuming brick building in the Silver Lake business district, forming a line that by 7 a.m. often stretches across the parking lot to the street.

While several states have passed laws requiring newspapers to use recycled paper, and similar federal bills are pending, Suffolk County is apparently the first local government to enact legislation.

The price paid for recycled newspapers has plunged in recent years and may drop further before rebounding, according to the author of a state report on newspaper recycling due out Thursday. As a result, many community groups that recycled newspapers as fund raisers have quit. Even the Boy Scouts have dropped out. The last of the troops in the Western Los Angeles County Council of the Boy Scouts, which includes the San Fernando and Santa Clarita valleys, quit recycling papers earlier this year.

It is the latest twist to the home invasion robbery. This time, the armed thieves responding to Recycler Classified ads have struck at least nine homes throughout Southern California, stealing high-end Macintosh computers and related equipment.
