Anniston man abducted and killed
The body of an Anniston man was found Wednesday
morning, just hours after he had been reported kidnapped from his
Mckleroy Avenue home by gunpoint. The Body of 21 year old Carlos
Hubbard was found on Pope Street, just outside of Anniston’s western
city limits. Anniston police said Hubbard was kidnapped from his home
by several armed men around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday morning, A passing
driver noticed the body about 10 feet off the shoulder along Pope
Street just after 9 a.m., Hubbard had been shot multiple times.
Investigators said it appeared Hubbard was shot at an unknown location
and then dumped out of a vehicle along Pope Road. Pope Road resident
Celia Herron says this is not the first time that bodies have been
dumped on the street and that there is a continuing problem with
people shooting in the area.
The victim’s body will be sent to the state
forensics lab in Huntsville for an autopsy.

driver of the other vehicle, 63 year old Jack Byrd, of Centre, was
airlifted to UAB Hospital in Birmingham. Byrd’s passenger, 71 year old

More testing ordered for Lincoln development
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has ordered another round of soil
testing after low levels of PCBs were found at a new development along
Choccolocco Creek in Lincoln.
Mobile District Army Corps of Engineers
spokeswoman Lisa Coghlan, said Wednesday that the Corps’ “cease and
desist” order remains in effect for work along Choccolocco Creek in
the new Lake Point residential development in Lincoln. Coghlan said
more soil tests have been ordered because PCBs were found in soil
samples collected weeks ago by an independent Environmental Protection
Agency approved company.
Coghlan said soil, which tested positive for PCB,
must be removed and stored in an “upland disposal site,” a dry area
away from the water, usually behind a dike.
Officials with the Corps of Engineers halted
shoreline work by Lake Point developers after the company allegedly
dredged along the shoreline of Choccolocco Creek.
The area dredged by Lake Point developers is part
of a 48-mile area from Calhoun County to Logan Martin Lake that state
and federal environmental experts say was exposed to PCBs. Pam Scully,
the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency remedial project manager for
the Anniston PCB site cleanup, said she received soil analysis from
samples taken from the Lake Point residential development, and PCB
levels were below 1 ppm (parts per million). She said if higher
concentrations of PCBs are found in soil samples, developers could get
caught up in a costly cleanup.
The county's civilian work force was 55,243 in January, down slightly
from the 55,625 in December.
