Headlines from Alabama 810 News
- Holiday Travel
- Etowah Drug Bust
- Bank Scam
- Pie Crust Recall
Today marks the busiest travel day of the year
as more than 39 million people hit the roadways to travel to their
family and friends over the thanksgiving holidays. Almost five
million are also expected to fly through the nation's airports.
Forecasters believe a mix of storms and some snow in parts of the
Midwest and east could cause delays in some of the country's biggest
airports. The Birmingham International Airport expects some 70,000
passengers to come through the airport this week. As far as Alabama
highways go, you can expect congestion. Clay Ingram with AAA says
close to 39 million people will be traveling 50 miles or more to
their holiday destinations.
Etowah Drug Bust
Members of the Etowah County Drug Task Force
have busted a large scale methamphetamine distribution ring.
18-year-old Geraldo Perez Ochoa is charged with four counts of
trafficking methamphetamine, as well as illegal entry, and is being
held on four-hundred thousand dollars bond. 19-year-old Jose Guzman
Reyes is charged with three counts of trafficking methamphetamine
and illegal entry. He is being held on three-hundred thousand
dollars bond. 19-year-old Roberto Tiburico Hernandez is charged with
one count of trafficking methamphetamine and is being held on one
million dollars bond. The three were arrested as part of a
month-long undercover investigation in cooperation with the FBI and
authorities in Marshall County. Agents say they bought drugs from
the men at various locations in Etowah County. Authorities say they
simultaneously served three warrants in Marshall County late Monday
and took the men into custody. Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entgrekin
said this is the perfect example of how working together can make a
difference in the community.) Agents seized a stash of
imported Mexican Meth, also known as ICE, with a street value of
seventy thousand dollars. They also seized four firearms and two
vehicles during this raid.
Bank customers in Alabama, Tennessee, Florida
and Mississippi were the victims of a telephone scam. They were
called on the phone and told to visit a fraudulent Web site to
verify their existing on-line credentials, specifically requesting
their username and passwords. Regions Bank is the target of this
online scam. The bank has
said they will never ask customers for online information via the
internet or telephone. Regions has asked any customers who have
responded to this solicitation to please contact Regions at
1-800-REGIONS (734-4667). The FBI cyber crime squad said this is a
new twist on an ongoing scam since the requests are coming by a
computer generated phone call.
Pie Crust Recall
Thanksgiving just a day away there is another food recall. Blue
Planet Foods is recalling 3,898 units of Heartland-brand Graham Pie
Crusts because they contain ingredients not stated on the label.
People who have an allergy to almonds, milk or coconut run the risk
of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they eat pies
made with the crusts. Blue Planet is based in Collegedale,
Tennessee. The pie crusts were distributed to stores nationwide.
They bear the following codes: "Best By 10 27 08 1" or "Best By 10
27 08 3." Consumers needing more information can call Blue Planet
