Anniston murder suspect arrested in
One of the two suspects in last Friday's
shooting in Anniston, which left one man dead and injured another,
is in custody in Virginia. The Henrico County Virginia Sheriff's
Office arrested 52 year old William Bradford, Tuesday night on
charges of first-degree murder and attempted murder. Bradford is
being held in the Henrico County jail without bail awaiting
extradition back to Calhoun County. Police continue to search for
18 year old Quindarious Nofsinger, who is also wanted in connection
with last Friday's shooting. Police are asking that anyone with
information regarding Nofsinger's whereabouts call the Anniston
Police Department at 238-1800.
Attempted rape suspect arrested
A 29 year old Anniston man has been arrested
by Oxford Police in connection with an alleged attempted rape of a
day camp counselor near the Oxford Civic Center. Benjamin Foster,
has been charged by police with first-degree attempted rape. Foster
was spotted in a car near the civic center around 3 p.m. Monday.
Foster is a suspect in a July 2 incident in which a woman allegedly
was grabbed around the waist and thrown to the ground before
fighting off her attacker.
Burn ban lifted
The Alabama Forestry Commission on Tuesday
downgraded a no-burn order in north Alabama to a fire alert and
cleared counties in south Alabama to resume normal burning
practices. Forestry officials said that the rain over the past few
days has reduced the threat of catastrophic wildfire. Lower
temperatures also played a role in providing enough moisture to
justify lifting the no-burn order. Under the fire alert, the state
forestry commission will restrict issuing permits for outdoor
burning. In north Alabama counties under the fire alert, trash and
debris may be burned with caution. The commission said that the
state is still facing abnormally dry conditions and urges residents
to use all necessary safety precautions during any burning. The
commission will continue to check ground moisture and may need to
reissue fire alert and no-burn orders for cleared counties. The
north Alabama counties downgraded from no-burn to fire alert
include: Calhoun, Cherokee, Clay, Cleburne, DeKalb, Etowah,
RandolphSt. Clair, Talladega.
Anniston Social Security office could move
out of the county
Services Administration has said they will be moving out of the
current Social Security office in Anniston which serves five
counties in east Alabama, But the question is where will they
move. Officials say the GSA has rejected several sites in the
downtown area of Anniston but had agreed on a site at McClellan.
Developer James Lloyd has a contract with the GSA to build the new
office at McClellan, however the Anniston City Council Tuesday
night on a 3 to 2 vote, rejected a zoning initiative that would
have allowed the construction at McClellan. Councilmen Little,
Palmore and Bennett opposed the move to McClellan. Councilman Jeff
Fink and Mayor Chip Howell supported the move. As a result of
Tuesday nights vote, the General Services administration is expected
to look at other sites, some likely to be in the other five counties
served by the office, which would move the social security office
out of Calhoun County.
