Pomona resident Gandy Ochoa was 27 years old, said Supervising Deputy Coroner Larry Esslinger. Ochoa was washing the windows at 17742 Beach Blvd. on Tuesday when he was electrocuted by a 12,000-volt power line that killed him instantly.

If there's one thing Hollywood has taught us all, it's not to stray far from the pack when there's a homicidal maniac on a killing spree. In "Identity," travelers find themselves sharing a seedy desert motel with a mass murderer. Was it just the AAA discount that drew everyone to the same motel, or are their supernatural forces at play? It's not that this movie is so bad that the answer is "who cares?" but it's questionable whether it's really worth $9.50 to solve this mystery.

The Huntington Beach police and fire unions have endorsed nearly the same slate of candidates for this year's election, with the two groups differing only on a single council member. The Huntington Beach Police Officers Assn. and the Huntington Beach Firefighter's Assn. announced last week that they support incumbent Councilman Joe Carchio, former Mayor Connie Boardman and Planning Commissioner Fred Speaker for the council. The police union gave its fourth nod to Jim Katapodis, a sergeant with the Los Angeles Police Department, while the firefighters tapped Planning Commissioner Blair Farley as their fourth choice.

The Fullerton Police Department has announced that a group of criminals has been committing credit card fraud in Huntington Beach and Fullerton through the use of “card skimmers.” When the illegal device is slipped into the card slot on an ATM, it can capture personal identification numbers (or PINs) when a customer uses the machine. The skimmer records the data on a microchip. It is later used to make false debit cards, and the perpetrators begin to withdraw funds from the victim’s account.
