San Diego police are on the lookout to buy some heavy duty high-tech laser guns made by Applied Concepts of Plano, Texas, maker of the Stalker line of speed detectors.

“The Stalker X-Series [light detection and ranging devices] are the smallest and lightest hand-held, gun-type lasers on the market today,” says the firm’s website. “Using C-Thru Technology, the operator can take a position where previously — because of a fence, trees, signage, etc. — continuous tracking of a target was impossible.” In addition, “When enabled, the unit can be operated even when [laser] jammers are being used without any worries about false or no readings.”

According to a request for quotations issued by the city on May 21, the cops are seeking to buy 11 Lidar XLR guns plus various accessories including two brackets for BMW motorcycles and two dash mounts.


Another local lobbyist has signed on with marijuana boosters. The Atlantis Group, run by ex–Jerry Sanders aide Marcela Escobar-Eck, is working for San Diego Health and Wellness, a “medical marijuana consumer cooperative” regarding “matters relating to project entitlements for a project at 5125 Convoy Street,” according to a June 2 disclosure filing.

Ms. Escobar-Eck, known as an ex-Sanders administration city employee who okayed the too-tall Sunroad building that had to have its top floor lopped off for exceeding the height limit, has lucrative private clients these days, including controversial One Paseo developers and La Jolla real estate owners who hope to bypass requirements of the La Jolla Planned District Ordinance to keep retail shops on ground floors rather than brokerage offices.
