A Glendale man clung to the trunk of a getaway car Friday after refusing to give up his friend's iPad to a man who tried to use counterfeit money to buy it, police said. The 25-year-old man advertised the sale of his friend's iPad for $500 on Craigslist and arranged to meet an interested buyer at Starbucks on Western Avenue and Glenoaks Boulevard, according to Glendale police. The buyer handed the seller an envelope containing money about 7:30 p.m., but the seller used a marker to check the authenticity of the bills and quickly determined they were fraudulent, police said.

The trial of three people accused of killing Hoover High School student Raul Aguirre was pushed back a few days while one of the lawyers in the case wraps up an unrelated hearing in Northern California. Mark Geragos, who represents 21-year-old Karen Terteryan, asked that the trial date of Sept. 8 be rescheduled for Sept. 15 because he had to attend a preliminary hearing in Modesto, Deputy Dist. Atty. Darrell Mavis said. On May 5, 2000, 17-year-old Aguirre was waiting for a bus in front of his school when two reputed gang members attacked his former Taco Bell co-worker, police said.

Darleene Barrientos After three years of delays, postponements, dismissals and appeals, the end does not seem much closer for those who want to see Raul Aguirre's alleged killers brought to justice. Aguirre, a 17-year-old Hoover High School student who loved the Los Angeles Lakers and the Dodgers, was killed three years ago today. He was not a gang member, but he tried to intervene in a fight between a former co-worker, who was a Latino gang member, and three Armenian gang members, police said.

CITY HALL — Glendale Police and Fire departments stand to get more than $2.7 million in federal funding to help pay for terrorism training, new equipment and a regional DNA laboratory. The City Council tonight is expected to officially accept the money at a time when officials say the city needs it most. “Obviously with budget reduction over the years, the grant funding becomes imperative for us to add any new items that typically would have been paid for through our capital outlay budget, so it’s very important for us in order to get the support equipment that we need,” Police Chief Ron De Pompa said.
