Stockton man sentenced to prison for stealing mail

STOCKTON, CA - A man was sentenced to prison for stealing mail and ID fraud Friday.

Frank Antwoine Johnson, 33, was sentenced to three years and one month in prison for possession of stolen mail, credit card fraud and illegal possession of id documents, said Lauren Horwood, spokesperson for the U.S. Attorney, Eastern District of California.

According to court documents, in June 2011, Johnson and two others were seen in a van pulling alongside neighborhood mailboxes and stealing mail. When police pulled the van over, they found evidence that Johnson and his accomplices were cataloging mail, profiling people for ID theft and going through mail for information to use in id and financial fraud later.

Horwood said Alisha Grim, 40, was sentenced to three years and one month in prison and Courtney L. Williams, 24, was sentenced to two years and three months in prison in February for the same crime.

Winds prompt health caution in San Joaquin Valley

Winds prompt health caution in San Joaquin Valley

to gusty northwest winds across the northern San Joaquin Valley have prompted local air-pollution officials to issue a health cautionary statement through this evening. These winds are forecast to strengthen across the western parts of the District later this afternoon.

Winds in the northern and western part of the San Joaquin Valley may produce areas of localized blowing dust. Blowing dust can result in unhealthy concentrations of particulate matter 10 microns and smaller, or PM10.

Exposure to particle pollution can cause serious health problems, aggravate lung disease, trigger asthma attacks and acute bronchitis, and increase risk of respiratory infections. For people with heart disease, short-term exposure to particle pollution has been linked to heart attacks and arrhythmia, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Residents in these areas are advised to use caution through this evening.

Stockton homeless sweep results in downtown camp

STOCKTON, CA - A handful of homeless campers moved from south Stockton Wednesday resurfaced in downtown.

The day began with the city emptying the sidewalks of tents near the St. Mary's homeless facility on Harrison Street.  City officials have said living on the streets is unsanitary and a cause of crime.

But it wasn't long before Occupy Stockton leaders had set up a  few tents in front of the state building along El Dorado Street.

Organizer Lynne Prater said if the city attempts another sweep, they're willing to move from one spot to another.

"We're gonna continue our protest.  Before the posted time (for leaving) we will gladly break down everything and remove our footprint.  We will take it to the sidewalks and we will have a 24- hour vigil if we have to stay up walking around the block all night long," said Prater.

City rules do not allow for overnight camping in city parks.
