Authorities finish search at home of ex-cop’s mom

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) — Authorities hunting for an ex-Los Angeles police officer suspected of three killings have wrapped up a four-hour search of his mother’s Orange County home.

Irvine police Lt. Bill Whalen says his department and U.S. marshals removed 10 paper grocery bags of evidence from the home today in La Palma. He didn’t elaborate.

Computer forensics lab technicians removed five items as evidence.

Whalen says Dorner used to live at the home, but nothing indicates he’s been there recently. Dorner’s mother and sister cooperated with the search.

Dorner is suspected in a spree of violence as revenge for being fired from the Los Angeles force.

A former LAPD captain’s daughter and her fiance were killed in Irvine last weekend. A pair of shootings Thursday killed one officer and wounded two others.
