Good morning!

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

You may be able to help solve a crime. Jennings Police are asking for help in finding suspects in a weekend armed robbery at the Walgreen’s on Highway 26. Police say one of the men involved fired a shot toward employees. We’ll tell you more at noon, and you can read about the incident HERE.

A new state audit shows Louisiana lost tens of millions of dollars on a failed sugar mill in Lacassine. We’ll tell you just how much money was involved.

Also today, a bracelet with the name of a Marine missing in action for almost 40 years leads a teenager to the Arlington National Cemetery. We’ll see how the missing Marine ended up becoming more than just a name on a bracelet.

Plus, a mother’s love can surpass even species lines. We’ll show you how one dog is caring for a litter of kittens after their mom was killed.

Speaking of animals, we’ll share the story of an elephant crying real tears after being rescued. You can also check out the viral video HERE.

Ben tells me we’ll be in the 90s by the time our show comes on, and then you can look for afternoon showers and storms at any time later today. We’ll have a better chance of rain tomorrow. Just what can we expect? Tune in at noon for Ben’s live, local forecast for the answer. You can also check out the latest weather conditions HERE.

Remember, if you’re away from the TV at noon, you can always tune in to kplctv.com to watch us online and your mobile device.

Have a great day everyone!
