Anniston abandons police protection in
At midnite Monday night, the responsibility of
protecting a large segment of Calhoun counties population shifted
from the city of Anniston to the Calhoun County Sheriffs
Department. Anniston withdrew police protection to their police
jurisdiction leaving the Calhoun county sheriffs department saddled
with the job of protecting several areas longtime worked by the
city, including Saks, unincorporated areas of Golden Springs near
Choccolocco Road, Central City, West 14th Street near the Thankful
community, and Wellborn. Officials say the change will mean overtime
for sheriffs deputies, until the county can find a way to fund
additional deputies to take up the slack. Chief Deputy Matthew Wade
said approximately 14,000 residents and 150 businesses formerly in
Anniston's police jurisdiction are affected.
Postal employee indicted
A Cherokee County postal employee has been
indicted by a federal grand jury after she allegedly stole mail from
a postal facility. 35 year old Rebecca Sue Johnston, of Centre,
also known as Becky Johnston, was one of two postal employees
indicted in unrelated cases for allegedly stealing mail from postal
facilities. Johnston was indicted on four counts of theft of postal
funds. U.S. Attorney Alice Martin said in a statement that Johnston
is accused of stealing mail on three occasions between August and
September 2007. She allegedly took clothing, a handbag and other
items from packages that were supposed to be delivered by
employees. She was also charged with witness tampering after she
allegedly misled one of the victims by giving the person a false
version of how the package was opened and was found inside her home,
according to the indictment
