Good morning!

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

The Great Duck heist has been solved. Lafayette Police have arrested two men in connection with the theft of a giant, inflatable duck. It was recovered and will be returned to the Boys and Girls Club. We'll have more on the case at noon, and you can read more HERE.

Also today, what if your spring cleaning could make you some extra cash? Find out how resale clothing and accessory shops work, and why they're growing in popularity.

Plus, a dire prediction for guacamole lovers. We'll show you why avocados are in short supply and why scientists say the crops may have problems in the future.

Ben tells me temperatures are running a little warmer today with some partial clearing of the skies. We should be dry this afternoon, and tonight looks to be clear and cool. What can we expect as we head into our weekend? Check out Ben's live, local weather at noon for the answer. You can also read about the latest weather conditions HERE.

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