Anniston man abducted, one suspect in custody
A Jacksonville man is saying he was kidnapped and
robbed early Wednesday after he stole drugs from a co-worker and
police have one man in custody in connection with the incident.
According to Anniston police, the 19-year-old man told investigators
he was in the Anniston Plaza parking lot on McClellan Boulevard when a
man with a handgun, accompanied by two other men, forced him to get
into a GMC pickup. The men drove around for about half an hour before
returning to the shopping center where they dumped the victim from the
vehicle. The man told police that the men in the truck took his wallet
and his keys. He reported suffering a few minor cuts and bruises.
Wednesday police arrested 18 year old Joshua Andrew Husted, of
Alexandria. They expected to arrest two other men in connection with
the incident. Police said the suspects all will be charged with
robbery in the first degree and kidnapping in the second degree.
Alabama House approves Sunday alcohol sales
The Alabama House passed a bill Wednesday that
clears the way for city councils in 14 Alabama cities, including
Anniston, Gadsden, Talladega and Sylacauga, to call referendums on
legalizing Sunday liquor sales. The bill passed the House 59-28 after
a lengthy debate where some members said allowing the sale of
alcoholic beverages on Sundays would increase the number of tourists
coming to the cities, while others said alcoholism is a major problem
and people need a day off from alcohol sales. The bill now goes to the
Senate for debate. Rep. Craig Ford, of Gadsden, who sponsored the bill
said the bill allows the local governing body to decide what's best
for their community. Rep. Johnny Mack Morrow, D-Red Bay, chairman of
the Tourism and Travel Committee, said allowing Sunday liquor sales
would help these towns lure conventions.
St. Clair Baptists cancel summer camp
The St. Clair County Baptist Association will not
hold summer camp this year at Camp Sonshine. Whitt Hibbs, pastor of
Arbor Baptist Church in Pell City, who also serves on the Camp
Sonshine committee said that they needed to evaluate the (camp)
ministry itself. The six-week camp normally starts in the middle of
June and ends in July. The St. Clair County Baptist Association, made
up of Southern Baptist churches, voted to suspend summer camp at its
April 19 meeting. The announcement comes on the heels of the arrest of
Camp Sonshine’s former part-time interim director Larry Ray Palmer,
who was arrested last month. Palmer, of Ashville was arrested April
12, after he allegedly enticed a child for immoral purposes
Anniston issues burn ban
The Anniston Fire Department Tuesday issued a
no-burn order in the city. The ban applies to all residents within
the Anniston city limits and three-mile-wide police jurisdiction. The
ban comes after the department battled at least 13 brush, grass or
forest fires between Saturday and Wednesday morning, with the biggest
one in Saks on Saturday taking eight hours to bring under control.
Until the ban is lifted, the fire department will not issue any burn
permits, and anyone caught with an outdoor fire will receive a
citation from police and a fine from municipal court.
Commission spokeswoman Colleen Vansant said no counties in the state
were under a burn ban Wednesday afternoon, but some individual cities
may have acted on their own.
