Can your 2-year-old pick a lock? The 'Bedroom Bandit' can

(Source: YOUTUBE/CNN) (Source: YOUTUBE/CNN)

Good morning!

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

Lots of you contacted us about the color of the water under the I-10 bridge. Turns out that neon green color was part of a test – we'll explain at noon.

Also today, why airlines are trying to get you to pay extra. This time around the idea is to base your fare on how much you weigh!

Plus, we've heard about security attacks through computers and smart phones, now find out how hackers are able to use smart TV's to spy on you.

Speaking of sneaky, why would a  two year old be called "the Bedroom Bandit?" Well, you'll need to check him out as he picks the lock to his sister's bedroom with larceny in mind! See it at noon, or go HERE now.

In weather, warmer temperatures have returned. Ben tells me the high this afternoon should be near 70 under partly cloudy skies. What will our Easter weekend bring? Check out Ben's live, local forecast for the answer. If you're in Vernon Parish, you may want to visit the Leesville Walgreens from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. tonight. The 7Stormteam heads there to program those NOAA Weather Radios.

Remember, you can always watch us online at kplctv.com and on air. We hope you join us, and have a great day!
