Officers responded to the 14100 block of Stanislaus Court last Thursday after a resident called around 2:42 a.m. to report a male intruder in her home, according to a Fontana Police Department news release. The woman told police that a naked man went into her teen daughter's bedroom and started masturbating while she slept, the release stated. The victim woke up to find the man hovering over her and screamed, causing the suspect to flee, according to police. He ran from the girl's room, down the stairs and left the home. Officers arrived at the home within minutes, but the man was gone by then. However, they were able to obtain surveillance video from the residence that showed the naked man inside. At one point, he "looked directly into the camera and placed his finger over his lips as if signaling to be quiet," the release said, describing what some of the footage showed. Detectives quickly identified the suspect as 21-year-old Jonathan Emmanuel Ward of Fontana. He was arrested at his home in the 7000 block of Nebraska Street later that same day, authorities said. When detectives interviewed Ward, they identified other potential victims -- and believe there could be others who haven't contacted police yet, according to the release. Ward possibly focused on a dance studio in the Inland Empire, though they did not give the name or area where it was located. He allegedly "became infatuated with several young girls" at the studio, police said. The suspect is accused of targeting girls through social media, using photos posted to their accounts to figure out where they lived. "Ward would often enter the rear yards of the victimís residence and on occasion, enter their homes when he would find an unlocked door," the release stated. He was booked into the West Valley Detention Center on suspicion of burglary, child annoyance and indecent exposure, according to inmate records. Because of a similar arrest last year in Fontana, a $1 million bail enhancement was issued. Police have scheduled a news conference for Wednesday morning where they are expected to release images and video of the suspect as they try to locate other possible victims.
From: Edoard Re: Lights Dear Webby, Not a web question, Sorry! What's the story about the LED lightbulbs? I am disenchanted with the pig tail fluorescents, that were promised to last 25 years. On my porch motion detector light, they last a year, max. And in cold weather they take forever to light up. Now they promise 25 years for the LED lightbulbs. And they are almost as expensive as the pig-tail lights were initially. Same BS? Edoard Dear Edoard The BS is the same. They are just re-using the same old propaganda, without having a clue about it. However, the good news are that the LED lights don't mind -40 at my front door, they turn on instantly when a deer or a magpie trigger the motion detector, and have been working steadily for over 2 years. One got smashed by horizontal golf ball size hail a couple of years ago, but that hail would have smashed any kind of lightbulb. If you put them into a jam-jar fixture, then they should survive horizontal hail quite nicely. So far I am quite impressed with the LED lighbulbs and use them to replace any bulb that burns out. Have FUN DearWebby

SO MUCH FOR PEACE OF MIND Security and peace of mind were part of the reason we moved to a gated community. Both flew out the window the night I called a local pizza shop for a delivery. "I'd like to order a large pepperoni pizza, please," I said, then gave him the address of our condominium. "We'll be there in about half an hour," the kid at the other end replied. "Your gate code is still 1238, right?"

A truck driver was having lunch at a truck stop when 8 motorcyclists came in. They ate his crackers, drank his water, etc., and he made no move to object. After he left one of the group laughed and said, "He wasn't much of a man, was he?" The waitress behind the counter, looking out the window said, "He's not much of a truck driver, either. He just ran over 8 motorcycles!" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Check Around Your Home's Foundation Check the grading around your house to make sure the ground is sloping away from your house and no plants or dirt is in contact with your siding.
