Friday's storms will have the potential to generate hail in the morning, and hail plus wind and tornadoes later in the day. Flash flooding is also possible with torrential rain in spots. Much improved weather moves in for the weekend. Remember, never drive through floodwater - turn around, don't drown!
9-2-06 – Authorities in Love County spent hours searching for suspects who they say tried to pass forged checks at a Marietta Bank. According to the Love County Sheriff, two or three men walked into the First National Bank around 10:00 a.m. on Saturday and tried to cash the checks.
As the teller worked on the transaction, authorities say there was a delay and the suspects may have gotten spooked. They ran out of the bank and got into a van outside.
A few minutes later, authorities spotted the van and chased it to I-35, where the men bailed out and took off on-foot into a wooded area near mile marker 18.
Deputies from Carter and Love County joined the FBI in a manhunt. One suspect was caught, but his identity has not been released. The rest are still at large.
