Rescued and hungry! Stranded delta island dog rescued


STOCKTON - A dog reportedly stranded for weeks on a delta island has been rescued.

A terrier mix trapped on an island in Fourteen Mile Slough, next to Stockton, has been given a new lease on life.

Animal lovers have been waiting all week to find out what would happen to the ragged-looking, little dog trapped on the island since at least April when he was first spotted.

The dog would appear on an isolated beach, then disappear back into thick, almost impenetrable brush. Stockton Animal Services began working with San Joaquin Country sheriff's deputies earlier in the week, with a plan to set out traps at high tide, to avoid drowning the dog if he were to be caught.

Silva said investigators are hoping someone may have seen something that could help.

Why you won't be seeing any new pictures of 'sexy felon' Jeremy Meeks for a while


STOCKTON - The Stockton gang suspect who became widely talked about because of his mug shot is now in federal custody. Jeremy Meeks faces a federal gun charge, meaning there will be no more pictures of him in custody.

Meeks was arrested during a Stockton police gang sweep several weeks ago. He would have been just another inmate had it not been for his mug shot which generated national buzz, generally among women admiring his looks.

Though Meeks faced about a dozen state charges, the Federal Government is now charging him with a single violation; felon in possession of a firearm. That one charge could lead to a prison term of 10 years and a fine of $250,000. San Joaquin County District Attorney spokesman Robert Himelblau said federal gun charges lead to longer prison sentences.
