Alarcon has a new story about his residence

Councilman Richard Alarcon now concedes he hasn't been staying at the Panorama City home his wife owns in his council district for three months, citing a break-in and attempted squatting by a mentally ill intruder. Alarcon said the man changed the locks on three doors, burned books in the fireplace and cut up the councilman's clothes. "I’ve been making repairs to make it a safe home. I’m not going to move my baby into an unsafe home,” he said, explaining that he has been staying at another home his wife owns in Sun Valley, outside his district. One neighbor told the Times no one has lived in the Panorama City home for three years.
