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.
ARDMORE, OK -- Ardmore Police say they arrested a man Saturday afternoon who tried to steal money meant to help children this holiday season.
Officers say Gregory Byrne tried to get away with a donation jar from Denny's. Police say employees put the jar out so they could buy gifts for children on the Angel Tree in their restaurant. A little after noon, officers say Byrne stole the jar, but that nearby officers caught him in the woods behind Wilkinson's nursery.
He is being held in the Carter county Jail.
