Choccolocco man faces burglary charges 

A 25 year old Choccolocco man is facing burglary charges following his arrest Sunday night in Wellington.  According to Calhoun County Sheriff Larry Amerson, officers were called to the J&M Midway Convenience store on highway 431 when a white male attempted for force entry into the business.  Three Employees were getting ready to close the business for the night when the man, who appeared to be intoxicated, entered the store and became angry and was asked to leave.  On is way out of the store he threw several magazine racks to the floor and threatened the clerks.  The clerks were able to get the man outside the store and they locked the doors.  The man then began to hit and kick the door in an attempt to gain entry.  A deputy responding to the call found the man kicking the door and arrested Micah Owen Henry on a charge of third degree burglary.  He was placed in the Calhoun County Jail under a five thousand dollar bond with a court date set for December 7th.


Governor vows support to keep Goodyear in Gadsden 

Gov. Bob Riley said the state of Alabama is committed to doing what is necessary to keep the Goodyear plant in Gadsden open.  In an interview Thursday Riley would not disclose details about the incentive package that state and local officials offered Goodyear.  Riley said that "Alabama is going to be as aggressive as other states and participating with local administrations to keep Goodyear here," "They have been a good, stable, solid corporate citizen for years, and we do not want to lose them for Alabama."  Riley said the company needs local and state support to make it through a difficult period. The Gadsden plant employs about 1,400.  Riley said"We're going to have an incentive package that I think will be as good or better than any other state that I've heard of so far,".  Goodyear has said it needs to reduce costs and wants to close at least two of the company's 12 tire plants in the United States.  Initially Tyler, Texas, and Gadsden were not on the "protected list" of plants. United Steelworkers officials, though, said in the last contract offer rejected by the union that Gadsden was added to the protected list.  Riley said retaining the jobs in Gadsden is as important as recruiting new jobs. If other Goodyear plants close there is a potential for job growth here.  "We want to do everything we can to make sure that those jobs remain here rather than some place else," he said.  Riley thinks Goodyear has a "legitimate chance" of stabilizing a sector of the tire market by using new technology.  He does not think a special session of the Legislature would be required for the incentive package because Goodyear is willing to wait until the next session begins in March. 



DNA leads to arrest in 9 year old murder case 

A DNA sample collected from a man in prison for a felony DUI matches the sample found on a woman found stabbed to death in Gadsden nine years ago.  A murder warrant was obtained Friday for 49 year old Robert Nathaniel Johnson Jr., in connection with the death of 42 year old Cynthia Suttle Brown,  whose body was found in a field off Tuscaloosa Avenue  in Gadsden in 1997.  Johnson was never a suspect in Brown's death, but Gadsden police Sgt. Mark Henderson said his DNA matched the sample taken from Brown at the time of her death,.  Johnson lived in Rainsville at the time of Brown's death, but he knew Brown and was visiting in the Gadsden area at the time.  The state Department of Forensic Sciences notified detectives of the match.  Johnson had been in a work-release program in Mobile, but was moved to Fountain Correctional Facility when Gadsden detectives notified the state Department of Corrections of the possible match. Henderson said that Johnson, in prison for a felony DUI in Scottsboro, confessed to the crime.  Brown was found dead with several stab wounds about daybreak on March 5, 1997. Detectives believed at the time she was a victim of a sexual assault when semen was found, providing the DNA evidence. The DNA has been cross-referenced several times through the years, but there was not a match until Johnson.  District Attorney Jimmie Harp said this is the first time in Etowah County that an old case has been solved through a match in the DNA database,.Harp said the DNA database made a difference, but Gadsden detectives kept the investigation alive. 


Enforcement stepped up in Alexandria 

A rash of serious and deadly traffic accidents over the past several weeks in the Alexandria community has prompted Calhoun County Sheriff Larry Amerson to order a deputy to be assigned to work traffic on hiway 431 during peak  hours.  The Sheriff said the detail will be working in an overtime basis.  The first detail was conducted on Thursday resulting In one arrest and the recovery of a missing juvenile.
