BRIEFLY : CHILD PORNOGRAPHY SUSPECT ARRESTED.

Misdemeanor charges were filed Monday against a housekeeper who took pornographic photographs of the 6-year-old daughter of a couple she worked for in Encino, city prosecutors said.

Fabiola Navarro Gonzales, 20, is charged with one count each of possession of child pornography, sexual exploitation of a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, City Attorney Jim Hahn said.

Gonzales came to the attention of police May 1, after she brought a roll of film to a Hollywood drug store to be developed, said Deputy City Attorney Michele Anderson.

Police were waiting for Gonzales when she returned to the drugstore to pick up the film. She was booked at the LAPD Hollywood station then released.

Gonzales is scheduled to enter a plea to the charges on May 27 in Division 83 of Los Angeles Municipal Court.

Valley man held in molestation case

A San Fernando Valley man was arrested Monday on suspicion of molesting several children who lived in an apartment he rented, police said.

Scott Beeks, 42, allegedly fondled the children after gaining the confidence of their parents who rented a room in his house, said Los Angeles Police Department Detective Corrie Malinka.

Police would not provide Beeks' address because the victims live at the same residence.

Detectives from the LAPD Foothill Division conducted an initial investigation last Thursday, after one victim told his father he had been fondled. Police later discovered Beeks had molested the children of a previous tenant, Malinka said.

According to Malinka, Beeks disappeared Friday after hearing police were looking for him but surrendered at the Foothill station Monday at 2 p.m. Beeks has been charged with seven counts of child molestation, and bail has been set for $900,000, Malinka said.

Detectives believe there may be more victims and are asking anyone with information to call (818) 834-3115.

Automart salesman convicted of fraud

A used car salesman was sentenced Monday to 6-1/2 years in federal prison for selling hundreds of autos that had odometers illegally rolled back to show fewer miles, therefore increasing the cars' value.

U.S. District Judge Gary L. Taylor also ordered Leslie Barnett to pay a $10,000 fine and $54,974 restitution to two auto dealers. The judge called Barnett's scheme ``carefully planned and executed.''

Barnett, 52, of Placentia was convicted of nearly two dozen charges, including being a fugitive. Barnett ran His and Hers Automart Inc. in Placentia.
