Robert Chacon The Internal Revenue Service has 42,000 reasons to get in touch with residents in Glendale, La Crescenta and La Canada Flintridge. But don't worry. The agents don't want to conduct audits. They're trying to hand out lost refunds. For one reason or another, the IRS has failed to successfully deliver income tax refunds totaling $42,078 to 57 residents or former residents from those areas and, like a good tax collector, the organization would like to get the money back to its owners.

A Los Angeles man and woman have filed a federal lawsuit against the Glendale Police Department, alleging a wrongful search last year during a traffic stop that led to their arrest. David Thompson Boyd, 51, and Patricia Marie Hale, 52, claimed in a U.S. District Court lawsuit filed March 5 that they were stopped on their way to dinner on Aug. 31, 2012 in Glendale for unknown reasons, searched without probable cause, arrested and denied bail. The pair are representing themselves. “It went from simply going to have dinner to all of a sudden being Bonnie and Clyde,” Boyd said, adding that he wants to know why the traffic stop escalated to an arrest.

The court-appointed receiver in charge of liquidating the assets of Advanced Development Inc. - the affordable housing developer that allegedly bilked Glendale and Los Angeles out of millions of dollars - has started slashing prices to attract buyers for everything from land to a used Bentley. While that might be good for someone in the market for a $60,000 British luxury car, it's vexing ADI creditors who fear the bargain sell-offs will leave less money for collection. On top of the markdowns, the receiver, David Pasternak, plans to file years of delinquent tax returns, which Glendale attorneys opposed because it could reduce the amount of money left for the city and others to collect.

The trial for former Councilman John Drayman, who is charged with embezzling at least $304,000 from the farmer's market in Montrose, isn't expected to take place until next year after a judge on Thursday gave his new public defender more time to prepare. At a hearing in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Judge Stephen A. Marcus pushed Drayman's pre-trial hearing to November - with his trial slated for some time next year - so his new attorney can review all the evidence collected during a year-long investigation.

A federal judge this week ordered a Burbank tax preparer who allegedly bilked the IRS of roughly $6.3 million to cease operations. U.S. District Judge Jacqueline H. Nguyen issued the permanent injunction Monday after federal prosecutors alleged that Anthony R. Loya, owner of Anthony R. Loya & Associates at 1303 W. Magnolia Blvd., understated taxes on 3,294 returns by $6.32 million - or about $1,920 per return. Loya, who denied the charges on Tuesday, said the injunction would not impact the five other tax preparers at his office, and that he would continue to serve in a managerial capacity.
