Alex Padilla has been rising political star since his 20s, when he became L.A.’s youngest councilmember

A grand jury indicted a former Orange County sheriff’s deputy on burglary and gun theft charges months after he allegedly broke into a deceased man’s home several times, prosecutors said Tuesday.

Surveillance video revealed Steve Hortz, 42, forcing his way into the Yorba Linda home of a man he found dead during a welfare check in the summer, according to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. He and two other deputies responded to the home located along Via Angelina Drive on July 20 and found the man had died from natural causes, prosecutors said.
