Former LAPD, Placentia Officer Suspected In Bay Area Bank Robbery

LOS ANGELES (  —   A female former LAPD officer has been identified as the bearded suspect in a Northern California bank robbery. Police say Jennifer Rae McClary disguised herself as a man when she handed a teller a note and demanded money at a bank in Danville. Local police arrested her a few hours later. CBS2/KCAL9 has learned McClary served in the LAPD from 2006 to 2008 then worked as a Placentia police officer until 2010. Placentia Police Department Sgt. Bryce Angel says McClary was fired for “failing to meet probationary standards.” But he wouldn’t have guessed this. “I was surprised anytime a police officer is arrested for a crime like that. It is obviously a far departure from where they started,” he said. “I think the person was in a very desperate state of mind and was going for a quick payday and committed a federal offense.” McClary reportedly grew up in north Orange County but later moved to the Bay Area. Last year, it appears McClary posted a picture on Facebook of her flashing $100 bills in front of her face. Neighbors where her dad lives in Placentia had not heard about her alleged crime. “I find that hard to believe,” one neighbor said. “We raise our kids well, and it doesn’t seem like something she would do.” Read More »

In total, fifteen people were hurt, including three firefighters and four police officers. Officials say the police officers suffered smoke inhalation. Two of the firefighters were more seriously hurt by a combination of heat exhaustion and smoke inhalation, but their conditions have since improved. Eight civilians also suffered minor injuries. 2 @FDNY fire fighters seriously hurt in Staten Island apartment house blaze. #1010WINS — NYRogerStern (@NYRogerStern) May 21, 2017 The building suffered extensive damage, but the blaze left some parts able to be reoccupied. Residents started returning to their apartments as the morning went on. Some described what they saw as the flames broke out. “It was around 4:30 I saw some smoke coming through the window and I heard noise outside and I thought ‘oh my gosh, what’s going on?’,” Violetta Bartolome tells CBS2’s Ali Bauman. “Then my husband called and said get out, so I rushed out with the girls.” As WCBS 880’s Myles Miller reports, the woman who lives in the apartment where the fire started told neighbors she was downstairs doing laundry when she got a call from her son. “I knew this lady from the third floor or fourth floor, she has a cat, she came downstairs. She was doing her laundry at that time, and then she went to the laundry and had a candle on and her cat might have dropped it, like she said, and set the apartment on fire,” resident Maria Alvarado said. Officials say the cause of the fire remains under investigation, but at this time it does not appear to be suspicious in nature. Read More » USA, LLC
