    A Michigan sheriff is sounding the alarm on "burglary tourism" — a recent trend where international organized crime groups enter the U.S. to skillfully rob wealthy suburban homes. "We believe that there has to be some kind of training camp because they come so well-trained, so equipped, and so knowledgeable about how to move and how to attack a home," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard on Wednesday told "FOX & Friends." "They do a lot of pre-op surveillance. They determine as best they can when someone won't be in a home. They go very quickly to the home, they break...

    LA County Assistant DA Diana Teran, who oversaw George Gascón's efforts to prosecute law enforcement officers instead of criminals and to release thousands of felons from prison early, was arrested Saturday on 11 felony charges related to the "unauthorized use of data from confidential, statutorily-protected peace officer files." Like many alleged felons in Los Angeles County, Teran was out on bail less than an hour after her arrest. Unlike many alleged felons in Los Angeles County, the Diana Teran scandal has the potential to topple the county's power structure, or to put a severe dent in it. That potential exists...

Peter Meijer is dropping his bid for Michigan’s open Senate seat, the Republican said in a statement Friday. “The hard reality is the fundamentals of the race have changed since we launched this campaign.
