Halvorsen. Sheriff Bland reported that all the property involved in the present criminal complaints is located in the Lake Arrowhead area, but the investigation being made is not limited to that area. Information has been obtained indicating that other areas of the county as well as some in other counties may be; involved. Two Years Work The arrests made today climaxed two years investigation which started when questionable! deeds recorded on Lake Arrowhead property came to light in January, 1962. A detective was assigned full time to the case. There are indications that the defendants have had interests in property in other Southern California counties as early as 1959. To indicate that the suspects were not aware of the investigation which was being made regarding them. Sheriff Bland pointed out that thc defendants presently have a title order, false statements of information, and grant deeds at a San Bernardino title company with in- no problems arc encountered byj RjaUo al- , orncy . But the following have since been issued nominating petitions: —3rd supervisorial district, S. Wesley Break, incumbent. —Congress, V. Dennis Wardle, Republican. —72nd assembly. James L. Christensen and Clayton Stanhope, both Republicans. —Superior judges. James E. Cunningham and John W. Kerrigan. —Municipal judges, Thomas M. Haldorsen. —Justice court, Vando E. Un ger. Mission and David II. Roddick, Highland. —Municipal Water district, fdist. 1). C. Patrick Milligan, the dale of thc auction, ownership usually changes quickly on the lots. It appears that thc ownership is conveyed from one fic titious name to another by means of phony grant deeds. Finally the property is divided and sold to innocent purchasers. These final sales are often handled by reputable real estate firms and usually go to a title company who issue a title insurance policy to protect the new purchaser. } According to Sheriff Bland and District Attorney Lowell E Lathrop it appears that such frauds can be expected in other counties in this state or other states where there are large percentages of tax delinquent property. Sheriff Bland stated that the investigation was made with the full cooperation of G. Leon Gregory, Tax Collector, John Bevis, Tax Assessor and Ted R. Carpenter, County recorder. N.Y.

There are still no Democratic candidates in the race for U S. Representative of State Assembly from this district Most political observers believe that the Democrats are holding out until after the county Democratic clubs hold their convention on Saturday. There has been considerable conjecture that incumbent Harry R. Sheppard might still run for Congress despite his statement that he is retiring for health reasons. However, the Sun newspaper, a consistent supporter of Mr. Sheppard since 1940, said today that Mr. Sheppard, by tele-j phone, had reiterated his intentions to retire, particularly af ter another consultation with his doctor.
