Would-be thief’s plan to steal truck foiled

Good afternoon!

Lee Peck here, in today for Cynthia - here's a look at what we are working on for early editions of 7 News.

A would-be thief's plan to steal a truck is foiled when the owner of the truck took matters into his own hands. KPLC's Gerron Jordan has this story.

Plus, jury selection got underway today in the murder trial of Mauricio Cumbrera. He's charged in the killings of his wife and stepdaughter.

Also, the FAA has given the green light for AAR to begin operating at the former Aeroframe facility. Tonight, we'll have an update on how many employees they are looking to hire.

And in this week's Louisiana Traveler, John Bridges travels to a Lake Arthur barber shop known just as much for its Cajun music as its haircuts.

If you've been outside in the last few hours, you've likely seen the dark clouds. Chief Meteorologist Wade Hampton says storms are popping up as we head into the evening hours. He'll have your complete forecast.

We'll see you at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.

  • Dog abandoned at local vet gets second chance

    It's unfortunately more common than you would think: pet owners dropping their animals off at the vet and never picking them up. Most offices cannot take in these animals, so they just end up at the shelter.

    A few showers possible Monday for the eclipseA few showers possible Monday for the eclipse

    Overnight, we will have clouds clear and will become mostly clear. Temperatures will slowly fall to the mid 70s. It will feel very warm due to the humidity. Heat indices will be in the 80s, throughout the night. Monday, the day of the eclipse, there is just a 30% chance of rain, so we will most likely have a few clouds during the time of the eclipse. There could be a few showers around the peak of the eclipse, but more likely, at least some clouds.
