Crumb trail leads to crook

Good morning!

Well "good" might not actually cut it for a description of today, but let's stay positive, okay?

Agnes DeRouen in the KPLC 7 Newsroom with a look at what we're working on for 7News@Noon.

Yep, it is indeed a gloomy Wednesday. Ben says what you see is what you're going to continue to get for a few days. He tells me the threat for more flash flooding continues in our forecast over the next couple of days. We may have seen a break in the heavy rains and storms this morning, but more rain will develop later this afternoon. Apparently we could see up to 6 inches of rain, and it seems the rain chances are never far away as we head into the weekend. Ben's preparing his live, local forecast for noon, but you can always check on conditions HERE.

Also today, if you're planning to quit smoking in this new year, don't give up. We'll have expert advice from former smokers themselves on the best way to quit.

Plus, you can do a lot with a smart phone, but your eyes may not be the only one looking at all that information. We'll show you how to protect your privacy from prying eyes.

It seems there are some folks just bent on taking stuff from other folks, but it seems at least one thief dropped a few crumbs to aid in his own capture! He actually left a trail of Cheetos! I kid you not, see the story for yourself HERE.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and stay safe as you're out and about in the rain.

    Debate on move to end non-unanimous juries in Louisiana

    Thursday, April 19 2018 10:49 PM EDT2018-04-20 02:49:12 GMT

    The future of how felony cases are handled could be in the hands of voters soon. The state Senate recently passed a bill that would end non-unanimous jury verdicts in felony cases. Currently, only Louisiana and Oregon allow people charged with felonies to be convicted when only 10 out of 12 jurors agree. However, the state of Oregon does require an unanimous vote from the jury in murder trials. Senate Bill 243 is sponsored by Sen. J.P. Morrell, D-New Orleans. Prosecutors, like Ca...
