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.
8-25-04 - Three people are behind bars in Ardmore – part of what police call a marijuana distribution ring.
They arrested Gerald and Cheryl Ford and Bruce Brightwell at a home in the 3500 block of Carter Street. Inside the house, agents with the D.A’s Task Force found $5,000 worth of marijuana, along with packaging supplies, six rifles, two handguns and a live marijuana plant.
Authorities say the bust came after two years of surveillance on the home. The three people arrested face multiple drug and firearm charges.
