by Lynn Duvall East meets West in Local Family Home (Out of respect for an elder of the family profiled today, I have withheld a few details in this column, including the family's surname.)

I was surprised when I saw the menu because the dishes were authentic Afghanistan fare. It seemed like an adventurous restaurant choice for a typical American family.

GLENDALE — Byron Alder was sure he would not recover his vintage camera lens. His wife was positive that earrings she lost during a recent home invasion robbery were gone for good. But the Alders, along with about 1,000 other residents from around Southern California, were ecstatic to find their belongings Saturday displayed across a series of tables and rooms at the Crescenta Valley Sheriff’s Station. The display was made possible by the Sept. 26 arrest of Jeffrey Parcell and Tobias Reyes, who allegedly ransacked more than 20 homes in a more than 12-month span in La Crescenta, Glendale, Artesia and other cities, Det.
