Former Governor Found Guilty on 7 counts 

A federal jury Thursday afternoon found former Alabama Governor Don Siegelman guilty on seven counts.  Siegelman was found guilty of federal charges of bribery, conspiracy, mail fraud and obstruction of justice.  Former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy was also convicted on charges of bribery, conspiracy and mail fraud which accused him of buying a seat on a state board with a half million dollar campaign contribution.  Siegelman’s former chief of staff, Paul Hamrick and former State Transportation Director Mack Roberts were acquitted of all charges.


Oxford Bank Robbed 

Authorities are searching for a white male who robbed the Colonial Bank in Oxford Thursday afternoon.  Officials say the man entered the bank and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.  Other details of the robbery have not been disclosed.  Police did say, however that no one was injured.  Officers say the suspect may have pink dye on him as a dye pack in the loot exploded after he left the bank.  Officers said that some of the money was recovered as a result of the dye pack exploding.


Investigation leads to recovery of guns and two suspects sought 

38 more guns stolen from a weekend home burglary in Calhoun County were recovered by sheriffs deputies Wednesday.  According to Calhoun County Sheriff Larry Amerson,  Wednesdays recovery resulted from the arrest of three men Tuesday by Oxford police where several of the stolen guns were recovered. Authorities are searching for the burglary victims grandson and another man in connection with the theft.  Investigators say they believe that the guns recovered in Oxford may have been traded for drugs and  the Sheriff said that he feels the remaining 38 guns that are unaccounted for will be recovered one or two at a time. 




Truck snags power line causing major outage 

A truck snagging a low hanging power line on McClellan Blvd Wednesday afternoon put a large part of Anniston in the dark for about an hour.  The accident shut down power as far south as 10th street and as far north as Weaver and Saks.  The outage shut down traffic lights and brought business in the area to a virtual standstill.  Alabama Power crews had electricity restored by 4 Wednesday afternoon. 


Two men arrested for enticing 16 year old to leave home 

Talladega County Authorities have charged Two men with felony custodial interference in Circuit Court after attempting to remove a 16-year-old girl from her home in Munford, according to District Attorney Steve Giddens.  30 year old Thomas Francis Vancaneghem  of Glendale, Ariz., and 21 year old Jeremy Alan Mahon of Harvest, Ala., both had initial appearances Wednesday morning before Circuit Judge Bo Hollingsworth, who set bond a $15,000 cash or surety bond for the pair.   Both men were arrested at about 9:15 p.m. Monday when the victim’s father prevented them from pulling out of his driveway with the victim already in the car with them.   Both men are accused of resisting arrest when Talladega County sheriff’s deputies responded, and both initially provided false information.   According to arrest reports, both men initially said they were 18 years old.   Vancaneghem at some point told officers he was a resident of Portsmouth, Va., but gave a Glendale address at his initial appearance.  Mahon initially said he was from Madison but gave an address in Harvest, near Huntsville, Wednesday morning. Giddens said the victim and the two suspects appeared to have met online, but it was not clear how long they had been talking to one another. The hard drive from the victim’s computer and a computer Vancaneghem was carrying at the time of his arrest had been seized and were on their way to the state forensics lab for analysis. In addition to the computer, Vancaneghem was also carrying $7,000 cash when he was arrested.  Custodial interference is a Class C felony in Alabama, punishable upon conviction by one year and one day to 10 years in prison. Giddens said the Sheriff’s Department is continuing to work the case and would probably be contacting the U.S. attorney regarding possible federal charges against Vancaneghem.


Investigation underway in Bremen, Ga. Motel explosion 

Investigations and clean up efforts continue in connection with the explosion at the Best western motel in Bremen. Emergency responders say there was one fatality, and no other victims were involved in the blaze that occurred just before 9AM Tuesday morning. Bremen Fire Chief Clark Farr says the Georgia Search and Rescue Team assisted them in the search. Farr says the clean up will continue to make sure the structure is safe.  Emergency responders are now investigating the cause of the explosion. The fatal victim is believed to be the  motel maintenance worker, 44 year old Reese Helton.
