Million-dollar homes look like a million bucks again

SLIDESHOW: Million-dollar homes
More million-dollar home news

GRANITE BAY, CA - Six years after an overheated real estate market pushed the price of relatively modest homes into the seven-figure range, million dollar homes once again actually look like a million bucks.

"This is a very different market," Lyon Realtor Jo Curtis said as she offered a tour of bank-owned homes in Los Lagos, one of Granite Bay's most prestigious neighborhoods.

When News10 examined how much home a million dollars would buy in May 2005, the Sacramento area was just a few months shy of the recognized peak of the housing boom. Nobody could have predicted back then how far prices were going to fall.

Butte County deputies search for Chico robber

CHICO, CA - The Butte County Sherif's Office need help finding a robbery suspect, who stole from a Tower Mart on W. East Avenue and Highway 32 in Chico Friday night.

The robber walked into the store, told the clerks at the cash register he had a gun and demanded money, Butte County Sheriff Sgt. Derek Bell said.

The robbery took the money and ran from the store headed toward Highway 32. Witnesses told police the robbery got into a small dark colored car that was parked on the highway and drove westbound, Bell said.

Chico Police later found a black Honda Accord wrecked at the intersection of Kennedy Avenue and Meridian Road in a ditch near an orchard. The car was empty.

Police set up a perimeter to search for the robbery and found no one, said Bell.

The robber is described as a dark skinned man in his mid-30's, about 6 feet tall, weighing 180 pounds, Bell said. The robber was wearing a black t-shirt and dark pants.

Turn on headlights in the fog

SACRAMENTO, CA -- Most California drivers are up-to-date on the windshield wiper law that requires headlights while driving in the rain. The law also applies to people driving in the snow.

So how about foggy driving conditions? This is a question a few News10 viewers asked. 

State law requires that drivers turn on their headlights in all inclement driving conditions, including the fog. Drivers can be fined up to $150 for not using their headlights in the fog.

Remember, high beams should not be used in foggy conditions since it does not improve visibility and can be a distraction to oncoming drivers.

Alexander Piggee, 23, was indicted on two counts of arson for the Oct. 21 mall fire and a blaze earlier that morning at a Wal-mart on Antelope Road in Sacramento County.

According to the indictment, Piggee is alleged to have gone into the Game Stop in the Galleria and started a fire in a back storeroom. Spreading flames and smoke in the malls' ceiling and duct work forced the evacuation of the mall. Dozens of stores were closed due to the fire, smoke and water damage.

Dugard kidnapping suspects due back in court

PLACERVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- The Northern California couple charged with kidnapping Jaycee Dugard and holding her captive for 18 years are due back in court as the case makes what the presiding judge has acknowledged is slow progress toward trial.

Among the topics on the agenda for Thursday's hearing in El Dorado County Superior Court is a motion by Phillip Garrido's lawyer to postpone his upcoming mental competency hearing, now scheduled to start Feb. 28.

Prosecutors are opposing the request.

Deputy Public Defender Susan Gellman also is expected to discuss if she plans to seek a change of venue for the hearing in which a jury will be asked to decide if Garrido is fit for trial.

Criminal proceedings against Garrido have been suspended until the issue of his sanity is settled.
