What makes Laron a Palo Alto man? Previous arrests identified him as an Oakland resident. Pertinent to probability that he is headed this direction. I'm sure the police know previous addresses and contacts, but the public is left in the dark, only encouraging us to suspect the places around here that offer handouts.
