You take my snack, I'll have you arrested!

Good morning!

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

A DeRidder man dies after being ejected from a pick-up truck on Highway 26 east of Hwy 171 in Beauregard Parish. The accident happened shortly after 10 p.m. last night and involved  the victims truck crossing the center line and into the path of an S.U.V. At noon we'll tell you what State Police thinks may have contributed to the crash. You can also read more HERE.

The clean-up continues in Moore, Oklahoma as more incredible stories emerge. We'll tell you how 22 people managed to survive the tornado by hiding out inside a bank vault!

Also today, they say age is just a number and two grandfathers are taking that advice to heart. They are gearing up for a body-building competition.

Plus, young children are encouraged to be creative, but confusion over health permits shuts down one little girl's lemonade stand.

Meanwhile, just how attached are you to your breakfast or snack food? Well we have the story of a mom who had her son arrested for allegedly stealing her Pop-Tarts!

The weather after the early morning fog burns off, Ben says our temperatures will warm into the upper 80's this afternoon. However, that heat and humidity could spark some isolated afternoon thunderstorms. What about tomorrow, and into our weekend? Look for all the information you need to plan for your Memorial Day holiday during Ben's live, local forecast at noon.

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