AT 10: What is Limestone Co. Correctional Facility's future?

Hey there and welcome from the WAFF 48 Newsroom.

Governor Bentley is looking to consolidate the prison system in the state. That means the Limestone Correctional Facility is possibly on the "chopping block." WAFF's Franklin White is checking into that possibility and the impact it would have on the Tennessee Valley.

We're looking for a heavy law enforcement presence in Montgomery tomorrow as state lawmakers debate a bill that would loosen the restrictions on carrying a weapon in your vehicle. Jake Berent will have more on conditions that have a number of law enforcement agencies ready to push against this proposed legislation.

And police continue to investigate a robbery at Huntsville's Bridge Street Town Centre. Police say a woman was punched in the face as her purse was stolen. We'll hear what Bridge Street management has to say about this crime.

We hope you'll join Kim, Brad, Scott and me tonight at 10.

See you then,

Mark Thornhill
