Mercedes-driving dognapper of Malibu

DognappedVeronique de Turenne at Here in Malibu says signs are posted everywhere about the year-old German shepherd taken by a 50-ish overweight woman with bleached blond hair who drove a silver Mercedes. She apparently lied to neighbors to steal the dog. On the subject of Malibu, Jenny Price posts at Native Intelligence that a truly unusual event has occurred at Carbon Beach: a homeowner voluntarily opened a public pathway to beach access. Jenny, by the way, will take John Rabe of KPCC's "Off-Ramp" on a sojourn to the hidden public beaches of Malibu this Saturday at noon on 89.3 FM. Her latest LA Observed guide to the beaches was posted today, with links to the earlier installments.
