Stolen money beginning to surface
As Anniston police and the FBI continue their
search for two men who robbed the AmSouth Bank in Saks last week,
police believe some of the money taken in the heist has begun showing
up in the registers of Anniston merchants. Investigators said several
merchants, including Wal-Mart in Anniston and an Exxon station in
Lenlock, received “suspicious money” and reported it to police. Police
have collected the bills, which are believed to have been tinted by
exploding dye packs packaged with the stolen money, and turned them
over to FBI agents. While investigators reviewed surveillance photos
recovered from the Exxon, they said the stolen money may have changed
hands enough that the customers who used the money at the stores may
have had nothing to do with the robbery.
Anniston Road Rage
A driver in Anniston took road rage to the
extreme Saturday when he shot an Oxford man in the leg because he
stopped too long at a stop sign on Moore Avenue. The 28-year-old
victim was driving in the 2300 block of Moore Avenue around 5:15 p.m.
Saturday afternoon when he stopped at a stop sign. The man told police
that when he stopped, the person driving the car behind him began
yelling. The victim said he got out of the car and began arguing with
the other driver, and the other driver told him he’d paused for too
long. The victim told police the other man then shot him in the leg
with an automatic handgun. The victim was treated for his injuries at
the scene. Police say that they have the nickname of the suspect and
expect to make an arrest on first degree assault charges early this
Talladega man charged with murder of neighbor
A 57-year-old Talladega man was formally charged
with murder Monday morning after he allegedly shot and killed a
neighbor Friday night. Ulysses Mayner, allegedly got into an argument
Friday night with his neighbor 26 year old Bobby Leon Greene.
According to District Attorney Steve Giddens, witnesses saw Mayner go
into his apartment and come out with a handgun. He then allegedly shot
Greene twice. The weapon, an automatic handgun, was recovered. Mayner
was arrested Saturday morning. The cause of the initial argument
remained unclear Monday afternoon. Greene’s is the first murder in the
city of Talladega in 2007. There were four homicides in the city last
Complaint filed against Etowah County Clerk
County Commissioner Barry Gargus has filed a complaint with the
Alabama Ethics Commission against Etowah County Circuit Clerk Billy
Yates. Gargus said he filed the complaint because of Yates' alleged
interference in absentee voting in the November elections. Gargus has
sent complaint letters to the U.S. attorney's office, the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, the secretary of state's office and the
attorney general's office in connection with the election.
During last week's County Commission meeting, Gargus called for Yates
to retire. He said he had recorded conversations between Yates and
him regarding absentee ballots. A lawsuit filed by Gargus in November
challenged the election he lost on Nov. 7 to Commissioner Jeff
Overstreet. The suit was dismissed after Gargus filed a motion asking
that it be dismissed. Gargus said the election was not a fair race
because Yates knew of about 47 uncounted absentee ballots that would
have placed Gargus in the lead.
