Good morning, everyone, it's 12am. It's currently a bit cloudy with temps in the 60s. Sure beats the crazy storms we had yesterday evening. Today is going to be a real scorcher, for sure. It's going to be in the mid to upper 90s, and with the humidity and dew points, it's gonna feel like it's 100 or 105 degrees outside. So I'm staying in for just about the entire day. If I do have to go outside at all, I'll make sure I'm back in the house by 10am. Anyway, it's the 1st of July, and I think we all know what that means. It's the Fourth of July weekend. Lots of fireworks will be going off in the area. I'll have more on my coverage plan for this holiday weekend in the next day or two. With that, here's crime for today.
