Three arrested in attempted carjacking
Anniston Police have arrested three suspects in
what police are saying was an attempted carjacking and robbery.
Police say an unidentified woman, her daughter and another woman had
been to see a late movie at the Quintard Mall. Police believe when
the women left the parking lot in their car, three men in another
car were watching and followed them. The woman and her daughter
noticed the car behind them when they dropped the passenger off at a
home in their Golden Springs sub-division. When they arrived at
their home, a car was sitting beside their drive-way. Instead of
stopping they turned around, and when they reached the end of their
street, the men approached their vehicle. The woman and her daughter
then sped off as the men fired shots at their car. No one was
injured. Police viewed surveillance video from the mall and tracked
the vehicle to Hobson City where they arrested the Black males, ages
17, 16, and 15. Officials say the two oldest suspects will be tried
as adults charged with Robbery and discharged of a firearm at an
Woman charged in arson of boyfriends home
A 47 year old Hobson City woman is charged with
Arson today after burning down the home of her ex boyfriend.
Investigators say that Brenda Williams saw her ex boyfriend with his
new girlfriend and engaged in an argument with them. She then left
the scene and set fire to his home. Officials say the home was a
total loss. Calhoun County deputies arrested Williams within a half
hour of the call charging her with arson.
Marsh holds up EMA contract
The Legislature's Contract Review Committee has
delayed a $273,000 contract to test the Alabama Emergency Management
Agency's disaster plans. The contract was delayed when two
lawmakers expressed concern that EMA Director Brock Long used to
work for a company getting some of the work. State Sen. Del Marsh
said he held up the contract because some of the work was to be done
by Beck Disaster Recovery. That's the Florida-based company Long
worked for before he took over as Alabama's EMA director in January.
Long said the contract was awarded using an independent process and
he had nothing to do with deciding who would do the work.
