Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
12-24-03 - The holiday brings in lots of cash but for some stores the cash didn't have the value they expected. Bank officials at the First National Bank of Ardmore discovered seven one hundred dollar bills without security strips and many of them with the same serial numbers.
Several area businesses were hit with the counterfeiting crimes including: Sonic, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Applebees, and McDonalds all in Ardmore. Authorities say the bills were used at restaurants because they are easier targets than stores or banks.
Police are working with the secret service to identify 2 more individuals who they feel are connected to this case. Already one arrest has been made in the case.
