Authorities to resume search for ex police officer

BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) - Authorities hope clearer skies will help when the hunt for Christopher Dorner resumed today in the snow-covered San Bernardino Mountains. Officials hope improved weather will allow the use of aircraft.

The former Los Angeles police officer suspected of going on a deadly rampage to get back at those he blamed for ending his career.

Authorities yesterday 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 Friday 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.

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.
