Tait's misguided memorial priorities

ANAHEIM – An 11-year-old autistic boy is in protective custody after police accused his parents of keeping him caged inside the family home.

Police received a call at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday from Orange County Child Protective Services, which had received a report the boy was being kept in a cage at a residence on the 1300 block of South Garrett Street, Anaheim police Lt. Bob Dunn said.

Officers arrived and found a large pet cage along with some bedding and a mattress inside, Dunn said.

Police arrested the boy’s parents, Tracy Trang Lee, 35, and Loi Vu, 40, on suspicion of felony child endangerment and felony false imprisonment.

Katella Avenue and Douglas Road in Anaheim will be closed for periods between

Tuesday was a day of celebration as Bruno, the Anaheim police K-9 shot in the face in a confrontation with a gunman, formally said goodbye to his fellow officers at his retirement party.

A six-year veteran of the Anaheim Police Department, Bruno spent most of the day bonding with fans at an Anaheim park, alongside his handler, Officer R.J. Young.

“It’s been an honor, and it’s a bittersweet thing… but he’s retiring on top,” Young said choking back tears.

Bruno, a 7-year-old German shepherd, suffered career-ending injuries when he was shot by a gunman, identified as 21-year-old Robert Moreno Jr., during a police altercation on March 20.

The bullet shattered Bruno’s jaw and pierced his lung before stopping near his heart.
