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.
7-13-04 - Ardmore police have arrested a prime suspect in the July 1st armed robbery of a local bank that involved a masked woman. They say Cindy Baxter, 38, admitted to authorities that she robbed the IBC Bank of Ardmore.
Thanks to a tip to the Marshall County Sheriff, authorities went to Baxter’s home in Oakland late Monday. They say that is where she confessed, and they also found methamphetamine. Authorities have not officially charged her with the bank robbery yet – they still want to reexamine the surveillance tape.
Police also have reason to believe that the masked gunman wasn’t working alone.
