Sheriff: Oxycontin Pills Seized During Placer County Arrest Were Laced With Fentanyl

PLACER COUNTY (CBS13) — Authorities are warning residents after tests done on pills seized from a man arrested back in June revealed they were laced with Fentanyl. The Placer County Sheriff’s Office says 20-year-old Sacramento resident Edmond Danny was arrested back on June 18 for a felony probation no-bail warrant on burglary charges. While taking him into custody, deputies discovered he had about 1,000 pills of Oxycontin. Detectives sent the pills off to a lab to be tested. On Thursday, the sheriff’s office revealed that the lab found that the pills were laced with Fentanyl – a powerful synthetic opioid responsible for a rash of overdose deaths across the country. The sheriff’s office says there have already been 14 documented Fentanyl overdose deaths in Placer County since January.

Carl DeMaio working to suspend AB 5 to protect parents from being penalized for hiring at-home tutors

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – California law, Assembly Bill 5 has caused thousands of people to lose their ability to earn money working as an independent contractor in.

Her bill has attracted criticism from various industries, and KUSI News has interviewed dozens of people personally impacted by it. The former independent contractors say they preferred the freedom of not being an employee, something Gonzalez says they will still have once converted to an employee. On KUSI News, Gonzalez claimed that “there is no proof thousands of jobs have been lost from AB 5.” Now, a new industry of workers may be facing tightened restrictions as a direct result of Assemblywoman Gonzalez’s bill.

Photos: Mama bobcat – and her bobkittens – make cameo appearance in photographer’s yard

My yard in the Santa Clarita area backs up to a large barranca, so I’m used to seeing all types of wildlife. But I noticed a new, more unusual visitor a few months ago —  a female bobcat began appearing regularly,  “marking” the grass. A mother bobcat and her three kittens play in our backyard in Santa Clarita, CA. We first spotted the mother hanging around the yard a few months ago, thinking she looked pregnant, then she disappeared and we didn’t see her until our neighbor said he thought he spotted some little kittens down in the barranca the previous week. It was wonderful to see the family all looking great and playing just like kittens in our back yard.

DWP to Shut Utilities in Response to ‘Egregious’ Gatherings Amid COVID

Share this article:MyNewsLA.com photo by John Schreiber. The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power will have the authority to shut off utilities to homes and businesses that host “egregious” gatherings amid the COVID-19 pandemic, says Mayor Eric Garcetti. “We’re Angelenos, we like to be with each other, we like to be around people, we want to see our friends and family, and I know how tough these months have been for all of us,” Garcetti said Wednesday, one day after a gang-related shooting at a large party at a mansion in Beverly Crest north of Beverly Hills left a 35-year-old mother of three dead and two other people hospitalized. “Everything that we are doing, though, everything we individually and collectively are sacrificing depends on each one of us doing our part to reduce infections, hospitalizations and deaths.” Garcetti said the house parties usually take place at short-term rental homes, but the city’s house party ordinance prohibits gatherings that could cause risks to people’s health and safety. That law includes a series of escalating fines on both the party host and homeowner, as well as…
