Federal money possible for Auburn Canine
Facility at McClellan
to Congressman Mike Rogers, Congress could fund a new $1.7 million
canine detection program at Auburn University’s facility at
McClellan, under an appropriations bill working its way through the
House. The funding, which appears in this year’s Commerce, Justice,
Science, and Related Agencies appropriations bill, if passed could
help make improvements at McClellan and help purchase more dogs and
more equipment to provide trained canines to local law enforcement.
On Monday, the Homeland Security Subcommittee for Management,
Investigations and Oversight visited the Center for Domestic
Preparedness, Auburn’s Canine facility, and the Calhoun County
Emergency Management Agency to observe rural first responders in
training and in action. On Tuesday morning, the committee will hold
an official Congressional field hearing at the Auburn Canine
facility at McClellan to hear testimony on the challenges faced by
rural first responders. Among the witnesses scheduled to speak to
the committee are Dennis Schrader, State EMA Director Jim Walker,
JSU President Dr. William Meehan, Mr. John Pearce and Mr. Matthew
Knight. Rogers is Ranking Member on the
Homeland Security Subcommittee for Management, Investigations and
Oversight as well as a member of the Armed Services Committee
and the Agriculture Committee.
Anniston man among 13 indicted on firearms
Thirteen people, including an Anniston man,
have been indicted by a federal grand jury on federal firearms and
drug violations. 29 year old Jerry Davis Junior of Anniston is
among thirteen charged in the indictements. U.S. Attorney Alice
Martin said that Davis is charged with unlawful possession of a
firearm while being a user of illegal drugs. The names of five of
those indicted have not been released pending arraignment. Involved
in the investigation were the ATF, and the Calhoun Cleburne Drug and
Violent crime task force. Martin said that the investigative and
prosecutorial relationships are in place to curb alabama’s
reputation as a supply state for illegal firearms.
Saturday standoff results in arrest of Saks
Calhoun County Sheriffs Deputies were forced to
use tear gas Monday morning to end an over three-hour standoff in
the Saks area after 27 year old Anton D. Bowie resisted officers
attempting to arrest him on a warrant for failure to pay child
support. Bowie barricaded himself in the basement of his mother's
home with a handgun around 11 a.m. Saturday morning, after a deputy
arrived to serve the arrest warrant. According to Sheriff Larry
Amerson, Bowie told his parents he "wasn't going back to jail," as
he went to the basement to retrieve a .357 Magnum semi-automatic
pistol. An emergency response team was called to the home, to
attempt to negotiate with Bowie and persuade him to surrender.
Police flushed Bowie out of the homes basement with tear gas and
took him into custody at 2:50 p.m. Saturday afternoon. Bowie will be
charged with resisting arrest.
