Police: Juvenile apprehended for stealing & crashing Sulphur City Truck

Good Evening,

Lee Peck in the KPLC 7 Newsroom on this Saturday night. We missed you guys at Six due to NFL Wildcard Football, but here's a look at what we are working on for Nightcast.

Sulphur Police say a 14-year-old boy is responsible for stealing and crashing a City of Sulphur water truck. We'll have the details.

Plus, a new year means new gun laws. Local gun owners weigh in while attending this weekend's gun show at the Lake Charles Civic Center. KPLC's Haley Rush has this story.

Also it usually targets adults, but the Anime Sci-Fi convention known as CyPhaCon now has a section catered to children. KPLC's Erica Bivens was at the Children's Museum where the group was educating and entertaining kids.

And get set for some COLD weather as a powerful arctic air mass moves into the area. While temperatures will drop well into the middle 20s on Sunday night, Monday night will bring the harshest cold to SWLA. Meteorologist Ben Terry is in tonight with your full forecast.

We'll see you tonight at Ten for all these stories and more. Until then, we're always on at kplctv.com.

    Local business people are raising a red flag on proposed changes in Calcasieu Parish's sewerage ordinance. Some predict a huge cost increase at multiple levels for developers, realtors and consumers. However, parish officials say those who have read proposed revisions have only seen them because they were seeking input from various segments of the community.

    In this week's edition of "Christian's Cajun Adventures," KPLC's Christian Piekos spent time on a commercial crabbing vessel. Christian was assisted by Roger Kelly, a veteran crabber.

    Kelly, who also goes by the nickname "Snoopy," has been catching crab since a very young age. It seems like rudimentary work, but Kelly couldn't be happier with his job.
