Anniston couple charged with reckless
An Anniston couple is facing reckless
endangerment charges after Anniston police found their children
inside a parked car at a local department store. Anniston Police
Department Investigator Wayne Willis says the incident happened
Monday in Lenlock when the four children were found left in the van
of the Walmart parking lot while the mother was inside shopping for
a bathing suit. The mother, 31-year old Hope Neander of
Anniston and the father, 30-year-old Western Moore, also of
Anniston, face misdemeanor charges of reckless endangerment, which
could bring fines and imprisonment if they are found guilty. Willis
says he expects similar charges will be filed against another
Anniston couple whose three children were found inside a parked car
at the Anniston Wal-Mart parking lot Thursday afternoon. In
addition to the criminal charges, the couples will also have their
police reports forwarded to the state Department of Human Resources,
which Willis says this could lead to further investigations.
Sheriff seeks more deputies
Faced with increasing patrol areas, Calhoun
County Sheriff Larry Amerson asked the County Commission Thursday
for more deputies. The sheriff is asking for a minimum of eight more
sheriffs’ deputies' positions in next year's budget.
County commissioners indicated that they wanted
to give the sheriff the deputies, but a new revenue source would
have to be found to pay for them. County Administrator Ken Jointer
said it is something that will have to be looked at in the budget
process. The department is budgeted for 38 deputies, including four
positions added by the County Commission last year, two of which
were already employed but funded with grant money. The Sheriff told
commissioners Thursday that Having more deputies would allow an
increased presence in under-patrolled areas like Hobson City.
