After arresting two suspects earlier this week, police are still searching for more than $300,000 of jewelry stolen from a woman's luxury car last month. Newport Beach police arrested Thomas and Brandy Watts on Wednesday and charged each with possession of stolen property, based on a confidential tip. The Wattses are suspected of stealing a safe containing about $350,000 worth of jewelry from the floor of the back seat of Vonda Simon's Bentley in mid-October. Others may also have been involved, according to Newport Beach Police Sgt. Evan Sailor.

Teachers in the Huntington Beach City School District reached a tentative salary agreement with district officials Wednesday after negotiations had stalled. Teachers are scheduled to receive a 3.5% pay raise retroactively for the school year that is weeks from ending, said Kathy Hogan, president of the Huntington Beach Elementary Teachers Assn. She said the more than 300 teachers in the elementary and middle school district will receive cost-of-living pay bumps next school year.

Less than a week after it went missing, the bronze Virgin Mary statue marking the front of Our Lady Queen of Angels Church is back. The 4- to 5-foot figure was found in the yard of a Tustin woman who called police about it Wednesday morning. The woman, returning from a trip, found the statue on her lawn and alerted police after reading a newspaper account of the theft. The statue went missing sometime between the evening of Nov. 14 and the morning of Nov. 15. The woman's teenage son apparently had friends visiting the house last weekend; at some point during the get-together, the statue arrived in the yard, said Newport Beach Police Lt. Craig Fox. The woman, who police said asked to remain anonymous, did not realize the figure was stolen at first, so it stood in the middle of her lawn for several days.

Heavy fog and low visibility contributed to a 15-car pileup in this small southwest Kern County community early Friday. Eleven people were injured, several of them seriously, authorities said. The chain-reaction accident began about 8:10 a.m. when a big rig truck heading south off an Interstate 5 offramp tried to turn left at a stop sign onto California 166, said the California Highway Patrol. The truck driver -- who told authorities he was having difficulty seeing through dense fog -- had begun to make the turn and his trailer was still blocking lanes when drivers heading west on California 166 began slamming on their brakes to avoid hitting him. A series of accidents followed.

A Corona del Mar couple has donated their $1-million yacht to the Orange Coast College School of Sailing and Seamanship, which will convert the vessel into a "classroom on the water," college officials said. The 68-foot motor yacht, named Por Nada, will be moored in Newport Beach for maritime training courses as part of the school's new professional mariner program that launches Aug. 25. The boat, donated by Gared and Frances Smith, includes a stand-up engine room, modern navigation and communication systems, and a salon for on-board lectures, said Brad Avery, director of the School of Sailing and Seamanship.

The State Water Resources Control Board unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday to spend roughly $2 million over the next two fiscal years to test ocean water for harmful bacteria. The action was taken at Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's request after he eliminated state funding for the program in his September budget cuts. Without the money, some coastal counties would have had to reduce or halt analysis of seawater to ensure its safety for beachgoers. -- Susannah Rosenblatt

Firefighters discovered a man dead early Monday in a burning apartment in the Palms neighborhood near Culver City, and officials were investigating the cause of death, authorities said. The victim, about 40, was found just after 5 a.m. in a second-floor unit in the 10900 block of West Regent Street, said Ron Myers, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department. "The fire itself was a relatively small fire within the structure," Myers said. The cause of the fire also was under investigation.
