Teen arrested after incident in Reseda

RESEDA - A teen was quickly arrested Friday after allegedly walking into a day care center a block from a police station, pushing a baby sitter and a 6-year-old aside, then going upstairs and rifling through some drawers.

It all started about 3 p.m. in the 19000 block of Archwood Street in Reseda, said Lt. Tom Smart of the Los Angeles Police Department's West Valley Station.

``He got into the apartment through the rear garden sliding door, and asked for a Mr. Walter,'' Smart said. ``There was no Mr. Walter.''

A police officer at the scene said the 17-year-old suspect was in custody within about two minutes.

Library materials reused in project

Windows, shelves and bricks from deteriorating libraries throughout the city will be saved and reused in new libraries, under a $100,000 project the Board of Public Works announced Friday.

The funding from the California Integrated Waste Management Board will benefit branch libraries in Pacific Palisades, Arroyo Seco, Palms Rancho, North Hollywood and Woodland Hills, said DPW's Tonya Durrell.

A mid-20th century, 30-foot-by-40-foot fresco and vault will be reinstalled at the Arroyo Seco Branch Library, while historic red bricks and wood framing will be preserved at other sites.

The projects are scheduled for completion in six months.
