Santa Monica officials are looking for a way to build a public safety building after voters rejected a $29.5-million bond measure Tuesday that would have helped pay for a facility to house the city's police, fire and emergency operations. Proposition EE, which would have authorized Santa Monica to issue general obligation bonds to pay for the building, fell short of the needed two-thirds vote by less than 5 percentage points.

The Santa Monica City Council has decided to issue up to $18 million in lease revenue bonds to help fund a new public safety building after voters rejected a $29.5-million bond measure to pay for the facility. Police officials said a new building is needed to house the city's police, fire and emergency operations because the 40-year-old headquarters now in use is overcrowded and run-down.

More than a year ago, when the city of Santa Monica hired the architectural firm Morphosis to collaborate with WLC Architects on the design of a $2.3-million fire station in Ocean Park, it seemed a shrewd match. Morphosis is world-renowned for its radically experimental work. The more mainstream WLC had previously designed more than 20 fire stations. The city would get a building both practical and unique.

A felon awaiting a life sentence under the state's "three strikes" law broke out of the prisoner lockup and escaped into air-conditioning ducts at the Santa Monica courthouse Thursday afternoon. As darkness fell five hours later, the 23-year-old prisoner was still missing and believed to be inside a crawl space in the building.

After a night and day of listening to a convicted felon scurrying through the duct system of the Santa Monica Courthouse, Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies Friday night captured the man, who was awaiting a life sentence under the state's "three strikes" law. The search for prisoner D'Marc Lee had disrupted events throughout the day Friday after he escaped by kicking a hole in the ceiling of his holding cell Thursday afternoon and crawling into a space between floors.
