Here are the top stories from Orange County today:

  1. An oil spill was spotted in Huntington Beach’s Talbert Channel, and cleanup crews had to use multiple booms to contain the spill. Public works crews spotted the splinter around 7 a.m. Friday in the Talbert Channel in Huntington Beach. A California Department of Fish and Wildlife official said in a tweet: “Due to the milky brownish characteristics of oil officials, they believe this may be from an abandoned pipeline.” Fortunately, no oiled wildlife was seen, they posted. The spill is “a rainbow”. – colored sheet that stretched about 200 meters long and 75 feet wide on the surface of the water. (OCRegister)
  2. More than 80 people have been charged and 56 have been arrested for stealing more than $5 million in paychecks and birthday checks from grandparents of California residents. Since 2018, the criminal network, made up mostly of members of two Los Angeles street gangs, has been stealing checks, “washing” names, writing fraudulent names and recruiting people on social media to deposit them. the United States Postal Inspection Service, California Attorney General Rob Bonta, and other agencies worked together to make the arrests. Bonita warned, “If you steal a family’s hard-earned money, we will find you.” He added: “We will come after you; we will hold you accountable”. (CO register)
