DA investigating where Alarcon really lives

Alarcon_profile.jpgThe DA's office served a search warrant at the Panorama City residence claimed by Councilman Richard Alarcon, part of an investigation to determine whether he really lives there or has illegally claimed residency in his 7th district. Another warrant was served at a home in Sun Valley, in the adjoining 2nd district. Both homes are owned by Alarcon’s wife, Flora Montes de Oca. LAT, LA Weekly
