LANCASTER – A Lancaster man has been sentenced to two years in prison for his role in a burglary in which cold-hearted culprits put the homeowner’s Chihuahua in a freezer. Deavean Irvin, 20, served as a lookout and was on probation for a 2004 commercial burglary at the time of the Jan.31 incident, prosecutors said. Irvin was sentenced Tuesday after pleading no contest to burglary last month. Irvin and four teenage boys – three 17-year-olds and a 15-year-old – were arrested in the theft at an east Lancaster home during which one of them left the dog, a 2-year-old Chihuahua named Roxy, in an industrial freezer in the victim’s home. The dog survived. One 17-year-old has admitted to burglary and animal cruelty – the equivalent of entering a guilty plea in adult court – and was sent to probation camp for three months, officials said. A second 17-year-old admitted to burglary and also was sent to camp for three months. The 15-year-old admitted the burglary charge and was placed in a group home, officials said. The remaining minor, who didn’t participate in the burglary, is charged with two counts of receiving stolen property and is to be arraigned later this month in Lancaster Juvenile Court. Contributions have poured in for Roxy’s owner, Kimberly Holzer, who is pregnant with twins and whose husband, an Air Force technical sergeant, is stationed in Afghanistan. Holzer’s home was ransacked during the burglary, and the intruders destroyed $600 worth of new maternity clothes. Lancaster sheriff’s station employees took up a collection and gave Holzer $800. They also gave Roxy a bag of toys. Edwards Air Force Base employees cooked dinner for her and repaired a broken door lock. And a San Fernando Valley-based security company installed free alarm service. firstname.lastname@example.org (661) 267-5744160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Liverpool were left to rue a slow start as Rashford twice finished impressively after Romelu Lukaku had outmuscled Dejan Lovren.The visitors dominated after the break, but could only find a response via a United player when Eric Bailly turned into his own net 24 minutes from time.Just a second defeat in 21 Premier League games leaves Liverpool still in third, but they could drop to fourth if Tottenham win at Bournemouth on Sunday.Rashford may not have even have started but for an injury to Paul Pogba suffered in training on Friday.Without the £89 million ($123 million) French international, Mourinho moved Alexis Sanchez inside behind Lukaku and handed Rashford his first league start of the year on the left.The Portuguese coach’s plans worked to perfection when Rashford brought the game to life with a superb finish after 14 minutes.Lukaku beat Lovren to a long ball and the England international skipped inside Trent Alexander-Arnold before smashing a shot past the helpless Loris Karius.Liverpool had chances for an immediate response as Sadio Mane just failed to get on the end of Roberto Firmino’s dangerous cross before Virgil Van Dijk skewed a header wide from close range when unmarked from a corner.But soon Liverpool’s task became doubly difficult as United’s power and pace again proved too much.Lukaku shrugged off Lovren once more and when his ball through to Juan Mata was cut out by Van Dijk, Rashford swept home the rebound.– Eventful afternoon –His pace caused Liverpool all sorts of problems and Rashford weaved past Trent Alexander-Arnold to score his first goal. Photo/DAILY MAILAn eventful afternoon for Rashford continued moments later when he escaped with just a yellow card for a late lunge on James Milner.And he should also have had an assist to his name before half-time when a dinked cross picked out Mata perfectly only for the unmarked Spaniard to sent an acrobatic effort well wide.Liverpool enjoyed almost complete control of the ball in the second-half but failed to find a way through the mass ranks of United defence.The visitors did have two strong appeals for penalties waived away as Ashley Young pulled at Mohamed Salah’s shirt before an Andy Robertson cross rebounded off Antonio Valencia’s arm.When Liverpool were handed a lifeline, it came via a United boot as Bailly — who had excelled on his first start since November — flicked Mane’s cross into his own net.Mourinho then drew the ire of his own fans as he replaced Rashford with Marouane Felliani 20 minutes from time to see the game out.But once again Mourinho was justified as the hosts held out for six minutes of stoppage time.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000His pace caused Liverpool all sorts of problems and Rashford weaved past Trent Alexander-Arnold to score his first goal. Photo/DAILY MAILMANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Mar 10 – Marcus Rashford scored twice in the first 25 minutes as Manchester United held off a Liverpool fightback to move five points clear of their visitors in second place in the Premier League with a 2-1 win at Old Trafford.United also close to within 13 points of Manchester City, but barring a late season collapse by the runaway league leaders that gap looks unbridgeable. More significantly Jose Mourinho’s men moved another huge step closer to guaranteeing a top-four finish by opening up a 12-point lead on fifth-placed Chelsea.
Cardiff striker Anthony Pilkington battles for possession against Fulham 1 Craig Noone was the hero for Cardiff as his stunning last-gasp strike rescued a point against Fulham at the Cardiff City Stadium.After a goalless first half, the Cottagers – who boasted summer signings Andy Lonergan, Ben Pringle, Tom Cairney, Jazz Richards and Jamie O’Hara in their starting line-up – took the lead moments after the break, though they had Bluebirds goalkeeper Simon Moore to thank for the breakthrough.The glovesman should have done better as he fumbled Ben Pringles’ cross, with Matt Smith reacting quickest to pounce on the loose ball, nodding in to put the visitors in front.Cardiff – back in their traditional blue home kit from chairman Vincent Tan’s preferred, and derided, red – reacted well with Anthony Pilkington hitting the post before the forward had a goal chalked off by the referee for an apparent handball in the build-up.Russell Slade’s men stuck at it and were eventually rewarded for their determination when 77th substitute Noone fired in a fine curling equaliser.The forward’s impact was almost instant as he picked up the ball on the right, cut in on the edge of the box and found the top corner with a classing curling finish.Meanwhile, Leeds United’s hopes of a winning start to the new Championship season were scuppered as Sam Vokes’ late goal earned Burnley a share of the points at Elland Road.The Clarets, back in the second tier following relegation from the Premier League, stated brightly and had two penalty shouts turned down in the opening half.But Leeds proved stubborn and, after midfielder Alex Mowatt hit the post with a low shot, the hosts snatched the lead through substitute Mirco Antenucci.Turning on the ball, Burnley were slow to close down the 30-year-old Italian, who curled a masterful strike into the net from 25 yards.His 83th minute strike seemed to be enough to claim all three points, but Burnley refused to give up, and they took advantage of some sloppy marking just three minutes later, as Vokes nodded in from debutant Tendayi Darikwa’s cross to claim a late equaliser.
It has taken them a while but reports of Donegal’s first swallows arriving in the county are now coming in.The tiny birds have been spotted in Letterkenny, Lifford and Kilmacrennan.The birds were due to arrive a number of weeks ago but because of the cold weather, they delayed their journeys.
