Deaths in fire ruled a homicide
Officials say they are close to identifying one
of the victims in Saturday mornings fire on Bancroft avenue in
Anniston but that they are awaiting more information on the other
victim. Officials confirmed Wednesday that both bodies found
Saturday in a burning Bancroft Avenue house were each shot multiple
times and the victims died before the fire. The bodies were found
by firefighters in a back room. The initial police report listed the
fire as arson. Investigators originally said one body appeared to
be female and one male. According to police, a white man in a tan
or champagne-colored Ford Explorer was seen at the house prior to
the incident. Anniston police are treating the case as a homicide.
Some 75 employees at Springs Global in Piedmont
will be losing their jobs on Friday. While company previously
announced an official closing date at the end of April, a decision
was made to eliminate the second shift prior to the plant’s complete
shutdown because of a lack of work. Workers were given 60 days
notice prior to the elimination of their shift. Both first and third
shifts are expected to stay on board until the end of April. Company
executives have been meeting with employees over the course of the
past few months to prepare them for the plant’s closure. Meetings
have covered the severance package and extended insurance benefits
coverage available to employees, as well what assistance is
available through the federal government’s Trade Assistance Act.
Identity thefts reported
Etowah County authorities say that over 60
reports of identity theft has been linked to a rainbow city
restaurant. Investigators say the identity thefts have been traced
back to the credit card company based in Atlanta that Struts
restaurant uses to process payments. Apparently, someone hacked into
the company's system.
The items charged to the debit cards were from locations in other
parts of the country, mostly in California and New York. The U.S.
Secret Service is now investigating and believes the hacker has been
traced to Eastern Europe.
Officials said the banks affected are in this area and victims are
not being held responsible for the lost funds.
