Anniston police seek public’s help to
apprehend murder suspect
Anniston police are hoping that the public will
help them in locating a murder suspect. Anniston Police Detectives
released the name Monday of William Royneal Taylor saying they have a
warrant for his arrest in connection with the April 22nd
shooting death of an Anniston man on South Allen Avenue. Taylor is
described as a black male, about 6 feet, 3 inches tall and weighing
about 180 pounds. According to Anniston police, 23-year-old Randy
Dewayne Pearson, of Lapsley Avenue in Anniston, died of a gunshot
wound at the Barber Terrace Apartments on South Allen Avenue around
11:30 p.m. on April 22. Police are urging anyone with information to
call the Anniston Police Department at 238-1800. Police cautioned
residents against apprehending Taylor themselves and merely asked for
information. A reward is being offered for anonymous tips leading to
an arrest through Calhoun County Crime Stoppers at 238-1414.
Jacksonville mill building to be demolished
The Jacksonville City council was scheduled
Monday night to vote on a proposal by Anniston contractor James Lloyd
involving the development of the old mill property in the city. Lloyd
told the council Monday night that his project has fallen thru and
that the owner of the building Cocker international has decided to
demolish the building. Mayor Johnny Smith said Monday night that the
city would be interested in buying the property once the building is
gone. Cocker international is expected to begin demolition within
weeks and the building could be down by the end of May.
Gadsden smoking ordinance begins today
With the City of Gadsden’s new smoking ordinance
going into effect today, only eight restaurants in the city sent in
responses to declare whether they plan to be smoking or non-smoking.
City officials say that Letters were sent to almost 100 businesses
that have a restaurant license in Gadsden. The letters include a form
that can be returned to the department indicating if the business
intends to be smoking or non-smoking. The Poor House, Little Caesars
and Subway on Noccalula Road have declared to be smoking restaurants,
while Chong Wah in the Gadsden Mall, Shoneys, Villa Fiesta, Popeyes
and Hunan have declared to be non-smoking restaurants, he said. The
letter says the ordinance requires a restaurant to declare itself a
smoking or non-smoking establishment. There is no allowance for
smoking areas or smoking after certain hours. The council passed the
smoking ordinance March 20 and then amended the ordinance April 10 at
the recommendation of Mayor Sherman Guyton, making minor changes and
requiring notification of the revenue department if a restaurant will
be smoking or non-smoking. Bars and private clubs are exempt from the
ordinance and will not receive notices.
Police search for explosives
Officers, acting on a tip, are searching a cave
and surrounding woods near Collinsville today in a search for
explosives. Agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms,
the state fire marshal’s office, the Alabama Bureau of Investigation’s
bomb team; the DeKalb Mounted Unit and the DeKalb Drug Task Force are
among the agencies involved in the search. Sheriff Jimmy Harris said
the search is related to the arrests of six people last Thursday who
were members of a group calling itself the Alabama Free Militia. A
large number of weapons and explosives were found in raids Thursday
morning. Harris said it is believed some of the militia members may
have hidden explosives in a cave.
