Man cleared in burning of Millennium Park arrested again

Good Afternoon,

Lee Peck from the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we are working on today.

The search for a missing elderly woman has a happy ending. A Lake Charles Police officer responded to the call and found the woman confused and in a ditch covered in mud and water near the property of her home. 

Plus, he was found not guilty for burning down Millennium Park. Now Seth Arceneaux and two other men are arrested and suspected in University-area burglaries.

Meanwhile the search continues in DeRidder for four men who robbed a credit union there. Tonight we'll show surveillance photos released today.  

Also the official news of Sasol's expansion has state and local economic development and workforce leaders preparing for the demand of skilled workers. KPLC's Theresa Schmidt has more on this story.

And an overturned 18-wheeler on Interstate has caused some problems for eastbound traffic. At last word crews were still clearing the furniture the big-rig was hauling.

Barbe High School is just three days away from the biggest game in school history. We'll tell how you how the City expects to give them big sendoff as they head to the Dome for the State 5-A Championship.

Also the rain is over for now, but when can we expect cooler weather? – 7 Storm Team Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton will have an update.

We hope you'll join us for Live at Five and  7 News at Six… until then remember we are online at kplctv.com and on your mobile device.
